Game description

Before the game actually begins you have to attach a rope to the carpet roll and hang it up on a rod or branch of a tree. Next, you have to put several plastic containers on the ground where the roll touches the ground. The team selects now one child whose job it is to fill the plastic containers with sand by filtering the sand through the carpet roll. If you have enough kids available, you could divide them into teams of two and have a competition.


For the competition, the team which gets the most sand in the containers wins.
