Steal the Bacon
Sent in by: Holly of Vista, CA

Who's takin' the bacon?

This is a game for 7 kids, 6 players and a referee.

To play this game, all you need is a ball and a handkerchief for each player.

Both teams line up in 2 rows of 3, and each player hangs a handkerchief out of his back pocket. A ball is placed in between the teams.

The object of the game is to steal the ball without getting your hanky pulled out of your pocket.

Everybody gets a number: 1, 2, or 3.

The referee calls out a number.

If she calls 2 and your number is 2, try to grab the ball and run back to your team.

If the other player gets the ball before you do, try to grab the hanky from their pocket.

If you get back to your team with the ball, your team gets a point.

If your handkerchief gets grabbed, the other team gets a point.

Play to five points or more.

Let's steal some bacon!
