What you need: Chalk and five hard-boiled eggs.

How to play: Mark four parallel lines on the table or floor with chalk -- 8 or 10 feet long, and 4 or 5 inches apart, making three narrow spaces. At the end of each space, make a circle, numbering the middle one 10, and the other two, 5. The middle space is marked 3, and the other two spaces, 1.

The rules: Each child takes a turn rolling five eggs, one at a time, down the middle space to the circles at the ends. If the egg goes into the middle circle, it counts as 10 points, but if it stops in the middle space, it counts only three points, and so on, counting the number of the place where the egg stops. Keep score for each child.

How to win: The player who scores the highest number of points wins the game.
