Untying the Human Knot

Purpose:

A fun ice-breaker and team-bonding game.

Materials Needed:

Small prizes.

Age Group:

Grades 3 - 8 (9 to 14 years).

 

 
What kind of knot did you want?

The Game:

Choose teams of 10 to 20 children and get them to form separate circles.  On your word, they must close ranks to form a huddle.  Then instruct them to close their eyes and hold up their arms.  With their eye still closed they randomly join hands with other kids.   (they must not cheat!)

Then tell the children to open their eyes and attempt to unravel the "knot" without letting go of anybody's hands.  Award small prizes to the winning team.  At this stage the teams should have thoroughly bonded, so you can then use them for other activities and games.

Have fun!
