Work together and untie the mess that you created! Nothing is required except for some problem solving and fun.

Number of participants: 3+
For: For kids and youths aged 7-16
Intensity level: Medium
Preparations: none
Equipment: none
 

Determine a large, empty area and stand players in a close circle facing each other.  This game is best played with at least 4 players.  Players stretch out their arms and grab the hands of any of the other players. *Be sure that each player is not holding BOTH hands of another player.  Have children then work together as a group to untie their arms by weaving through each other.  Players are not allowed to let of go hands so that children can get through, this would make the game too easy.  Players are encouraged to help each other untangle by stepping over or under arms, sliding between players, or attempting any other creative solution they can come up with.  In the end, this puzzle should end with one or two big circles with no arms crossing through the center.

*This game can also be timed, forcing players to work together more efficiently and quickly to untie themselves.
