The juggler must balance the club.
They have to do a racing, hand in hand. The first who arrives win.
If the club fall, the juggler cannot touch it, the child has to put it back on the juggler's face.
If their hands separate, the juggler must come back and let the club fall down.

* Spinning ball endurence.
Spin a ball on a stick hold by a child. The longer the ball hold, the better it is.

First round, lasting long enough with a Hula-hoop.

Running as fast as possible, while juggling.

* Juggling jumping.
Having the two legs attached, juggling 3 balls, jump as fast as possible a certain distance.

With diabolos :
* Diabolo high trow.

Jugging who is the highest is quite arbitrary. Timing the last participants can be more precise.

* Diabolo long distance passing.
It can be done with one or two diabolos. But with one is probably better.

* Diabolo high speed passing.
During one minute, as many passes have to be done with one diabolo.

* Stick precision throw.
Throw the diabolo in the air, then throw the sticks such that the string crosses a rope, and then catch the diabolo with your hands. The rope can be put on the ground or in the air, a few meters from the participants. This game had a big success at the European juggling convention in Hagen in 1994.

* String jumping.
Throw the diabolo, do as many jumps over the diabolo string, and catch the diabolo.

With devil sticks :
* The propeller.

Last as long as possible while doing the propeller with one devil stick. Running or walking under a rope are other options.

With unicycles :
* Limbo unicycling.
A rope is held, people have to pass under the rope on a unicycle. After each round, the rope is held lower.

* Unicycles racing.

* Unicycles combat.

* Unicycles ribbon stealing.
While riding a unicycle, having a ribbon weakly attached to the saddle, try to steal the ribbon of the others, without loosing yours.

Passing :
* Long distance passing.

* High distance passing.
A rope is held higher and higher, while jugglers do passing over it.

* Do 6 clubs passing, and one football passing with your feet.
While doing 6 clubs passing, do as many passes with your feet with one football.

* High speed 6 clubs passing in two counts (shower).
During one minute, try to do as many passes as possible.

* Slow speed 6 clubs passing in two counts (shower).
During one minute, try to do as few passes as possible.

* Volley club.
Like volleyball, but each one has two clubs. One club is juggled passed to a partner and thrown over the net. If one team let one club drop down, it looses one point.

Specials :
* Bounce a ball on your head.
Bounce a ball on your head for as long as possible. If it last too long, change the ball size. It can be a tennis ball or a bigger ball.

Try balancing a club on your nose or chin, while a sheet is moving over your had. In a shop, try balancing a club on moving staircase.

* Hold as many clubs as possible.
Friends throw clubs to a juggler who has to catch the clubs and hold as many clubs as possible.

* Juggle 3 (4 or 5) balls and site down exactly after one minute.
Jugglers juggle 3 balls. After a precise starting signal, independently, they have to stop juggling and site down when they estimated that exactly one minute has elapsed since the signal. This is good for children, if there are not too many.

Put a biscuit on your nose, try to through and catch it in your mouth.
