How to Play. You call out, e.g.: 'River!' and all the players run into the blue sector. Then you shout out, e.g.: 'Apple!' and the children jump into the red or yellow or green sectors. When you are sure that the players understand the rules, start the contest. In this, the last child to jump into the right sector or to step foot on a border is out of the game. It lasts as long as only the winner remains.
