Game description

Before this game really can start, the participants first need to create a target. What you need is a large egg carton, which holds 50 eggs. The kids can then convert this carton into a round target by cutting off the edges. Next, they are painting the circles on in in different colours. The smallest circle in the middle scores the highest points. The other circles, which are getting bigger towards the edge score fewer points. Now, the carton is put on the ground, and a line is drawn in a certain distance. Each child receives a chestnut and tries now, to throw his object into the egg carton. The points each child has scored are written down and then a new round begins.


The winner is the player who scores the most points.
