Divide the players into 2 teams, standing in single file with their hands on the waists of the players in front of them. At the opposite end of the space place 2 chairs. When the leader gives the signal the teams have to run around the chair and back. While running, players can’t take their hands off the waist of the person in front of them. If the chain is broken the team looses the game. The team also looses the game if it overturns or doesn’t turn around the chair. Variation: The teams must run round the chair in a squatting position.
Required: 2 chairs
Players are divided into teams. Each player has a lightweight chair. Mark a starting and finishing line on the floor. Teams compete to reach the finishing line first using their chairs as stepping-stones. The first chair is placed on the starting line and the first player stands on the chair. When the leader calls “Go!”, the second player passes their chair to the first player. The first player places that chair on the floor ahead of him/her and the second player squeezes past player one to her/his own chair. Player number three passes his chair to player number two and so on. This continues until the first team reaches the finishing line. The game must be conducted in complete silence. Teams lose up to 10 points for noises, at which point they have to start all over again. If anyone steps off the chairs onto the floor his/her whole team must go back and start from the beginning again.
Required: Enough lightweight but sturdy chairs for all players.
Divide players into two large teams (‘dragons’ ). Players form a line holding the waist of the team-mate in front. The last person in the line has a brightly coloured scarf or piece of material tucked into his/her trousers or belt. (This is the ‘dragon’s tail’). The object of the game is to catch the tail of the other dragon without losing your own tail in the process.
Variations: More than two dragons or one dragon and have the front person try to catch his/her own tail.
Required: Two or more coloured scarfs or pieces of cloth for ‘dragon’s tails’.
