- Equipment: A supply of apples
- Formation: Teams
Divide the group into two equal teams. In a yard or park, mark out a large rectangular area. One end of the area is the home base, the other end is the outpost, and in between is enemy territory. The job of the airlift team is to carry supplies (apples) from the home base to the outpost without getting 'shot down' (tagged three times) by the enemy team. The airlift team may carry one apple each or may let one or two boys carry several while the other protects them as they race from home base to the outpost. Boys who are tagged three times while carrying apples are out, and the enemy gets their apples. Those of the airlift team who are not carrying apples may rn freely without fear of being tagged. The team that has the most apples at end of the game wins.
You can then have an apple feast, with the enemy and the airlift team joining forces (as in peacetime).
