Down the Tubes

Can you steer the sled through the course inside the tubes to reach the finish?

Fox and Geese

On a large area of untouched snow, trample paths according to the pattern that you see here. The Fox tries to catch as many Geese as he can. Both Fox and Geese must run only along the paths (no jumping across!). Only one Goose at a time may be in the Safety Zone. When a second Goose runs to it, the one already there must leave. When the Fox tags a Goose, the Goose must go to the Fox’s Den until the Fox decides that he has caught enough Geese for his family’s dinner. Then the first Goose tagged becomes the Fox, and the game begins again.
