Log In
DescriptionThe group forms a circle, linking hands. In the center of the circle is placed on end a short trash can about a foot long. (A tall bottle may be used in place of the log). By it is lying a soft ball. The circle begins to rotate around the trash can, the object being to keep from knocking the trash can over, on the one hand, but to force some one else in the circle to knock it over. The instant it falls, the circle dissolves and all the players except the one who knocks over the trash can run, while he picks up the ball and throws it at the running players. If he succeeds in hitting some one, the one hit is out of the game. If he fails, he is out. So the game continues until but two players are left.
