Game description

Before the children arrive, the team leader hides a basket of eggs. On arrival, each child gets a coloured ribbon stuck in his belt. This is his Life Ribbon and has to hang out of the trousers for 40 – 60 cm. Now the group is divided into two teams. The objective is to get as many as possible eggs from the other team. You can do that by stealing the life ribbon. If this child happens to have an egg in his hand, he has to hand it over, and it returns into the basket. Players without a life ribbon can return to the start, where they can ask for another life ribbon. If an egg was successfully obtained from the other team, it goes back to the start as well. In the end, eggs and ribbons are counted out.


The winner is the team which got the most eggs. In addition the life belts can also be counted.
