GAME: "Lame Chicken"
Group is split into teams. Each of the teams has ten sticks (or slippers or anything else suitable). These are placed 10-12 inches apart like rungs of a ladder-one row in front of each team and several feet away from the players. The first Brownie in each group is the "lame chicken"; she must hop over these sticks without touching them. After hopping over the last stick, she reaches down, and picks up the stick and hops back with it and places it at the beginning. The next Brownie then becomes the "lame chicken".

A Brownie is disqualified if she touches both feet to the ground or touches a stick with her feet, when hopping.
