Trolls and Stones


In Trolls and Stones, the children must play with high-intensity to prevent the troll from turning them into a stone. They must also be aware of other children, who have been turned into stones, and try to save them.


  1. Mark out an area for the game.
  2. Choose one or more children to be trolls. Preferably give them a band.
  3. The troll(s) shall now try to turn the children, who are freely running around the play area, into stones.
  4. If the troll catches a child, he/she is turned into a stone and must similarly squat like a stone.
  5. The children are saved when a child jumps over them.
  6. Will the trolls manage to turn all the children into stones? Remember to change the troll(s) after a short period of time.


  • The game can also be played on skis.


No equipment is required, but you could mark the troll with, for, example, a band (scarf or hat)
