• This is a game from Lithuania and is best played with a large group of children. All that is needed is a medium-sized ball such as a kickball or a volleyball.
    All children stand in a circle and volley the ball across the circle. The ball must be hit with the hands and cannot touch the ground.
    When the ball touches the ground, as it inevitably will, the child who hit the ball last sits cross-legg...
    ed in the center of the circle.
    As more children sit in the middle of the circle, they must sit in a new circle facing the middle.
    The goal for the children in the middle of the circle is to intercept the ball, but they must stay seated facing the center of the circle.
    If a child in the center of the circle catches the ball, all the children sitting in the center can get up and rejoin the standing circle,
    and the player whose volley was intercepted must sit in the center of the circle. The game can be played until children grow bored.
