Games for 5 years Tug of War
This is a great game for outside!
The children need to be split into two teams.
Get a length of rope and tie a knot in the middle.
Lay the rope out on the grass and mark out a boundary 2 feet either side of the knot in the rope.
Then with the children divided into 2 teams they each have to take up a position either side of the knot.
When you say "on your marks..." they should pick up the rope and start pulling gently (this can be difficult to explain to young 4 year olds!).
When you shout "PULL!" both teams ahve to pull as hard as they can and the aim is to get the knot in the rope over the marked boundary on the ground.
It is a good idea to try to match the teams as evenly as you can for this one.
