The Feather Blowing Game

The feather blowing game is super simple and lots of fun. Good for 12-16 kids. The kids stand up, holding a large square sheet of fabric tight under their chins, with an equal number of kids on each edge of the fabric. Each edge represents a team. You drop a feather in the middle of the square and the kids attempt to blow the feather away from themselves.

There’s just one problem with the game. In the excitement of trying to control the feather, the players tend to lean forward rather than keeping the fabric stretched into a taut square.

So I made a pvc pipe square and had my friend Kathy sew a cloth cover as you see here. This one is large enough for three or four kids on a side. A team loses a round when the feather is blown off its side; the other three teams win the points.
