Bring 3 volunteers to come forward and try this. Give each a stick about 24 inches long. Tell them to hold it straight out at arm’s length with both hands so that they can watch it while turning around 20 times. They then must drop their stick and jump over it. Whoever jumps the farthest is the winner. Of course, most kids get so dizzy they can’t even see the stick when they drop it, let alone jump over it. Funny to watch. Have the rest of the group count as the person turns around.
