The rules are simple. Firstly, all the kids must warm up a little bit. Then, upon agreement, they drop on their bums and then they jump again to land on their feet. Every player is allowed just once bum bounce and one feet bounce. If anyone does double of any of the two, that person loses. The game becomes more exciting when the adults and kids play together primarily because of the weight differentiation.
