Game description

For this game, the team leader has to organise two big round bales of hay and place them on a flat surface. Subsequently, the group is divided into several teams. The objective for the team now is to get the bales from the starting line to the finishing line. The distance should be about 20m. It is important to give them a long distance so the kids can learn to use their strength wisely. The smaller the team, the harder the task.


This game requires ideally a sufficiently large, paved surface. If there is a downhill, it is way too easy for the bale to roll out of control. Caution is required for this game.
