Toilet Roll Relay

Don't pull so hard!

Purpose:

An enjoyable icebreaker and team building relay contest where teams attempt to pass toilet roll tissue between their legs without breaking the paper chain.

Materials Needed:

Toilet rolls for each team.
Suitable small prizes.

Age Group:

Grades 3 - 6 (9 to 12 years).

 

Introduction:

Working in teams, the children have all got to contribute wholeheartedly to be successful in this relay.  The loss of group effectiveness will result in the toilet paper chain breaking and the team will have to begin again!

In this relay teams have to pass the end of a toilet roll between the first person's legs and then over the next person's shoulder.   This is then repeated until the last person receives the paper end.

The Contest:

Divide the group into teams of ten or more people.  The teams line up at the starting line.  A toilet roll is given to the first person on each team.  On the shout "Go" this person passes the end of a toilet roll between his legs to the next person.  She then passes the end over her shoulder to the next person.  He must then pass it between his legs to the next person and so on until the last person receives the paper end.  The first team to achieve this is the winning team.

If the paper chain breaks, then the team must start all over again!   The way to win is to take things very slowly and gently and for each team member to guard the paper chain, keep it smoothly moving and ensure that it does not become tensioned.  The winning team justifiably deserves the prize on offer!

God bless.
