Filling the bottle Africa Zimbabwe Playing with things Props: a bottle N.o.p.: 10
Two groups on both sides of a playground and in the middle between them is an empty bottle standing up in the sand. One group has the ball and try to hit any body of the other group with this ball. The group who has no ball must try to fill the bottle with sand, but without being touched by the ball that the other group throw at you. When you are hit by the ball, you’re out and sit aside. If you are a good player and you catch the ball, then you may throw the ball as far away as you can in any direction. A group wins when all players of one group are out!

Scotch scotch – Zimbabwe

Scotch scotch Africa Zimbabwe Exerting game No props N.o.p.: 2
Two children are drawing a playground of 16 squares with a wooden stick. They stand in front of the square and start the game by calling out ‘wasa’ and then jump (across) into the square. One girl jumps to the right direction, the other in reverse, but they have to keep always two legs in two squares. They make exactly the same jumps, but you have to be careful and concentrate on their moves and at the same time watching the other player. This game gives a good sense of rhythm feeling.
