Game description

The challenge and excitement of this game rises if more than two teams play simultaneously. All kids form a human chain. The distance between the children is about 2m. At the beginning of the chain are many sponges. Now, the first kid picks up a sponge and throws it to the next kid, which in turn throws it quickly to his neighbour and so on. The objective for the last kid in the row is to mount all the sponges to a tower, which ideally stands for a little while.


To make the game a bit more challenging, you could use dry sponges, particularly when you play outdoors because those sponges are lighter and respond quite quickly and unpredictable to an even slight breeze. Holding the tower with your hands is not allowed.


The winner is the team that built the highest tower.
