SPOOL ARMIES.

Source: Games for Everybody






Children may derive a lot of fun from a large supply of empty spools
of all shapes and sizes. Pieces of cotton batting stuck in the
opening at the top may serve as heads.

For the "army" gather together as many spools of the same size as you
can, numbering each one. Choose a large spool for the general.

Arrange them in rows with the general at the head of a chair or box. A
small ball, or pieces of muslin knotted into small balls, will serve
as ammunition. When the battle begins, each child aims at the general,
endeavoring to knock him over, and as many others as he can. The score
is counted after each attack. If a spool has fallen over, but not off
the chair, it counts but half its number; if on the floor, it is
"dead," and the whole number is counted.
