Pillow Pass-Over Mixer

Materials:
sofa pillow

Directions:
Have kids form two equal teams. Then have teams form a large circle, with one team forming half of the circle and the other team forming the other half. Have everyone hold hands and place a sofa pillow in the center of the circle. At your signal, each side should begin pulling, trying to make some player from the other team touch the sofa pillow. Players may jump to avoid the pillow, but they must keep holding hands. As soon as a player touches the pillow, he or she must drop out of the circle. If players let go of each other's hands, both players are out. After about five minutes of strenuous pulling and jumping, the team with more players left in the game wins.

  1. This works great with a tall object like a garbage can in the center as well. It is difficult to jump over; whereas, a pillow might be easier to avoid by simply stepping over.
