Toilet Roll Relay

Don't pull so hard!

Purpose:

An enjoyable icebreaker and team building relay contest where teams attempt to pass a length of toilet paper alternately between their legs and over their shoulders without breaking the paper chain.

Materials Needed:

Toilet rolls for each team.
Suitable small prizes.

 

Introduction:
Working in teams, the young people 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 people.  The teams then line up at the starting line.  A toilet roll is given to the first person on each team.  On "Go" he passes the end of a toilet roll between the his legs to the next person, while he unwinds the toilet paper.  She then passes the paper 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 and the team wins!

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.
