Game description

2 ropes are attached to two handlebars so that the ropes can be held tightly and horizontal. The team leader now puts the can on the rope and the child has to roll the can carefully over to the other side without dropping it. However, the can has to touch the other handlebar.


2 people are facing each other and holding the rope on both sides. Now, in just of rolling a can on the ropes, a ball has to roll back and forth on the tightly stretched ropes.


Either, measure how long it takes to roll the can/ball to the other side or measure how many time this can be done in a certain time without dropping the ball.
