Tug of Peace

Tug of Peace

A group of boys sit in a circle holding onto a rope place inside the circle in front of their feet.  The ends of the rope are tied together to make a huge loop.  If everyone pulls at the same time, the entire group should be able to come to a standing position.  The Tug of Peace can also be played by stretching the rope out straight and having boys sit on either side of it, facing each other in two lines.  If both sides pull on the rope evenly, they can help each other up.
