If the child breaks through then they take an opponent back to their side.  If they can’t break through they must join the other team.

10. DIY Pool Noodle Race {Ramblings from Utopia} ~ My kids love this activity. They will race marbles and toy cars for hours. It’s a perfect indoor activity for a rainy day or can be taken outside so you can enjoy some sunshine.
