Fun get to know each other activity


Teams of three.  One player in the group stands firmly upright with their hands by their sides, arms rigid, elbows locked and fists clenched.

The object is for the other partners to stand on either side of their rigid partner and lift them off the ground.  Make this first attempt with little preparation other than giving the group the “ready, lift” signal.

Prior to the second lift have the liftees to get centered and rooted to the ground.  Have the partners try to lift them off the ground.



No processing, just a fun activity.
