This activity will challenge the children’s jumping skills, as they must cross the stream to avoid the Nix catching them.
- Mark the ‘stream’ on the ground with (parallel) ropes. The stream must not be wider than what the children can jump across.
- Two or three of the children are ‘Nixies’ in the stream.
- The other children stand on each side of the stream, which they try to jump across without a Nix catching them.
- Change the Nix as each child is caught or change after a short period of time.
