Game description

All of the group members stand 2-3 metres apart from each other. To mark out the borders the players are standing on a blanket or an area marked with sawdust. The first player on the first island is thrown an object which he must catch and throw to the next player. The player on the last island collects the mail.


The game can be made more difficult by increasing the distance according the age of the group. It is even more difficult if crates are placed on the islands for the players to stand on. This is something for older children.


The winning team is the team who can transport the most objects in the given time. The objects which are not caught or don't land on the island do not count.
