THE SPINNING TOP

(Sold in toy stores)
A circle is made on the ground and a spinning top is placed in the middle of the circle. The children take turns throwing their spinning top directly at the spinning top that is in the middle of the circle. They continue doing this until one hits the top in the center and it is removed. The child that is not able to knock the spinning top out of the circle, must place his own spinning top in the middle of the circle, so that the other children can knock it out.





ZANCOS / STILTS

You will need:
2 empty milk jugs or cartons
Clothesline or cord

Put a hole in the bottom of the milk carton and run the cord or clothesline through. Put a knot at the end of the clothesline so that it does not go straight through the hole. Do both cartons the same. Place your feet on the bottom of the carton, hold the clothesline or cord tight and walk like on stilts!
