|Equipment: a long rope, cloth
Place: gym, wide open area
Rules: Tie the cloth around the middle of the rope. Split into two teams. One team is on one end of the rope. The other team is on the other end of the rope. Put two lines about 10 feet apart line on the ground. Center the cloth in between the two lines. At a signal, the teams pull on the rope. The team that pulls the cloth over the line closest to them wins.
It is really fun to play over a
mud pit or small stream. The team that wins will stay dry while the other
team will get wet or dirty.
