Game description

All those who had their arm or leg in a cast once will realize that this game is not all that simple. To begin, the kid whose turn it is has to put a stick through one sleeve, down through one pants leg. Then he is ready to start the race. If you want to increase the difficulty, repeat the same thing, however, this time, 2 broomsticks are used. Now he is handicapped with 2 sticks, one on each side of the body. Now he can run from A-B. If the kids are familiar with this, already you can implement additional hurdles. However, that should not be made too difficult. Because the movement of the kids is greatly impaired, a fall could lead to injuries. Always consider the age and skills level of your group.


The winner is the player who reaches the goal first.
