Soap Bubble Battle

Two children act as captains, one of the company A, the other of company B and each in turn choose a soldier until the children are evenly divided into two companies.

Stretch a rope or cord at a medium height across the middle of the room, with company A on one side and company B on the other side.

Each company is provided with a basin of soap suds (a little glycerin added to the water will make the bubbles last longer) and each soldier with a clay pipe.

Two soldiers, one from company A and one from company B stand at arms length from the rope and each blows a bubble from his pipe towards the “enemy” and over the rope if he can. If a soldier blows a bubble over the rope without it bursting he company wins a point. If he fails to do so, his company loses a point.

These soldiers step back and two more (one from each company) advance and blow a bubble and so on until all have had a turn. Som one keeps the score and the company having the most points are the “victors” and to them belong the “spoils” which consists of a tiny paper drum filled with candy, a small silk flag or any appropriate prize.
