La Tomate – France

La Tomate Europe France Ball game Props: a (soft) ball N.o.p.: 5 >
Girls and boys are standing in a circle with their face looking into the middle. They stand with their legs wide, feet attached to their neighbour’s feet and they bend over to kick the ball with two hands attached to each other. Trying to hit the ball between the legs of the players, if the ball goes through then that player only use one hand, but most children just play this game without strict rules, fun is more important. Another rule is: when the ball has got through your legs, you must turn around and then play this game, which is harder to play…
