Immediate Preparation (10-15 minutes). First draw a rectangle about 2 m high and so wide that all the players can easily stand within it. Next divide the ‘picture’ in height into three roughly equal parts. Then write 'sky' in the upper sector, 'sea' in the middle one and 'land' in the bottom. After that, ask the players to draw birds, waves, flowers, etc. in corresponding the sectors.

How to Play. When the ‘picture is completed’, the players line ‘its frame’. First you ask, e.g.: 'Where's fish?' The players should jump into the sea sector. Next you ask, e.g.: 'Where's the sun?' and the players jump into the sky sector. Then you ask, e.g.: 'Where are trees?' and the players jump into the land sector. When you are sure that the players understand the rules, start the contest. In this, a player to last jump in the right sector or to set foot on its border, leaves the game, which lasts as long as only the winner remains.
