Mind the Chinese Ropes.
Ye'd tie different colourt elastic bands the gither, either side there would be two people haudin them an you'd dae the scissor jump over them, and it would jist get higher an higher.
If you were the one haudin an end the higher it got the mare ye'd shield yer eyes incase the other 'hauner' let go an the things wid ping oan ye .
If a car came ye'd haud it up an the driver always crouched doon in their seat when they passed under it laugh.gif

Oh, Chinese ropes! Many's a happy hour spent at this! And we never moaned about it taking so long to make them up. Kids now would be fed-up after putting a few together!
