Children work together to flip a tarp over while the entire team is still on it. This group activity encourages children to collaborate and use their problem solving skills to solve the challenge.
- Small tarp
- Pick an activity leader who supervises for safety.
- Lay a tarp on the ground and have the rest of the team stand on it.
- Pretend the tarp is a life raft keeping the group safe in the middle of the ocean, but in order to survive the group has to flip it over. Without anyone stepping off the life raft, try to flip it completely over. Remember to be careful to not step on anyone. If anyone might lose their balance, just have them step off safely.
Try this add-on activity:
- Pretend that the life raft has shrunk (fold the tarp to make it smaller) and to survive the group has to flip it over again. A smaller tarp increases the challenge!
