Game description

For the Ostrich endeavour needs at least four players and can be played at all ages. Make sure that all kids are wearing a hat or a beanie. How many people are catchers in this game depends on how many kids are playing. Ideally, you have one catcher for each participant. As soon as the team leader gives the signal to start, the runners get a little head start, but then the catchers come after them. The kids swap position as soon as one is caught. If someone wants to protect himself from a catcher, all he needs to do is sticking his head in the snow - just like an ostrich. Caution: Especially in deep snow, this game is hard to the participants because a) they are wet from the snow and b) most likely sweating. When that happens, they should go inside quickly.
