TOILET PAPER CHASE
Toilet Paper Chase is a great game for kids. You divide your children into groups with the same number of players. If there is an adult, find a volunteer. Try to organize the players to stand by their height with their opponents. The race starts with the first people on both teams to wrap toilet paper around his or her leg and the leg of the child standing to his right. The second child on the team tries to wrap the paper around the leg and the leg of the child standing to his right without breaking the paper. The wrapping continues until the paper is broken. The first ones who manage to tie their legs without breaking the paper are the winners.

This game requires a sponge, a very big sponge to be precise. It requires a jar and a bucket full of water as well. Each team should get a sponge, a jar and a bucket of water. There need to be at least four children in a team who are of similar height. The game starts with the first child in the team dunking the sponge into the bucket and passing it above his or her head to the person standing behind. This continues until the sponge arrives at the last child who puts the water into a jar. Now the last player runs to dunk the sponge into the bucket again and passes it over his or her head. When the water in the jar is full the game is over. Those who fill the jar first win.
