Jump The Nile
By: SCCC Posted On: 2020-06-05

Place two long thin sticks, or dowels, two feet apart. Tell the children that the Nile River runs through Egypt. It is a wide river, but full of crocodiles. Have those that want to jump the Nile line up behind one of the sticks. They will all get a chance to jump across the river. After everyone has had a turn, move the sticks a little further apart. Anyone who lands in the “water” leaves the game to do something else. Continue until only one person is left. If there is a large age range, divide the group into smaller groups closer in age.
