The game is best for groups of around 8 people. Form a tight circle, shoulder to shoulder, facing in with hands stretched out in front. Place one foot slightly behind the other for better balance. Place on person (the willow) in the middle of the circle. They should stay very stiff with arms across the chest (like a mummy) and eyes closed. Keeping their feet in one place, they should be pushed by those in the circle back and forth, side to side and around in circles any direction. The group can make wind noises for effect. Give everyone a chance.
