A mural that fits the game perfectly
Did you know there is a game called “cows, chickens, sheep and pigs”? I didn’t. Haha… But ever since last weekend I will never ever forget it. Because last weekend I spray painted a massive cow, some chickens (and omelettes), happy sheep and a super pink pig on the walls of a youth association. Fun right?
Whoops, finished the pink cans!
Every week about 300 children are going crazy in this room. In smaller groups of course. And every single one of them knows the rules of the game by heart. As weird as it sounds, they love it. The youngest are 6 years old, the bigger ones around 16. My focus group? The little ones. Obviously. What color do they like most? Pink!! The piggy is already favourite, by far. I call him Sherbert.
Ow… Main goal of the game?
This game, I think it’s created by someone who wanted to tire out the kids. Because it’s all about running. The game leader calls out one kind of animal and the kids run. The slowest kid drops out. The fastest kid wins the game, when all the slower ones have dropped out.
“Cow!” – The kids run to the wall with the cow on it.
“Chickens!” – The kids run to the wall with the chickens on it.
“Sheeps!” – The kids run to the wall with the sheep on it.
“Pigs!” – Guess what?!
There’s always a bigger fish. May the paint be with you..
