Game description

To begin with, divide the group into at least two teams. In reality, it does not matter how many teams you have as long as you have enough 3m long rods. One for every team. After the teams are formed, they each receive a rod. The objective for the kids now is, to roll the toilet paper up on their rod. They can do that at once or as a team effort, leave it up to the children. As long as the entire road is covered in toilet paper at the end, almost everything goes.


If you want to make this game a little bit more difficult, make sure that the kids use the rod only in a vertical manner. Another variation would be, to start putting toilet paper at the bottom of the rod ad then work your way up. Another way is to use whole toilet paper rolls and push them one by one from the bottom up. It is important that always one player holds the rod so that the rolls can be pushed upwards. It is also important that the rod at no point is in a horizontal position.


The winner is the team that first got the rod covered in toilet paper or rolls.
