Hose Head

Use old tights for this swinging take on keep-away.

What you'll need

  • Several pairs of old control-top hose or tights (sizes medium or small work best)
  • 1 sponge ball or rolled-up sock for each player
  • 2 or more players

How to play

  1. Setup: Create a hose hat for each player by cutting off the hose at the thigh and putting a ball or sock in the toe of each.

  2. Players put on their hose hats, cuffing the hose as needed to make the fit secure. The ball should hang at least to the shoulders.

  3. On the count of three, players try to grab the ball -- and the hose along with it -- off the heads of opposing players while keeping their own ball and hose in place. This leads to much wild swinging of heads (which is why a soft ball or sock works best) and much laughter. (No holding the hose on your head, as a strong tug from another player could be jarring.) The last player with a hose hat on his head wins.
