How To Play In The River

All you need is a straight line - like a rope or a hose or a line on a tennis/basketball court etc. Line everyone up one side of the line. Tell everyone they are now standing on the bank of a river and when you say "in the river" they all jump to the otherside of the line, and when you say "on the bank" they jump back. Keep doing this. Change occasionally for example when they are on the bank say on the bank you jump to the river. If others follow they are out! Confuse people as much as possible.

Great to play when you need to energise people after sitting for a while.
