Type of Activity: Problem-Solving
Props Needed: 40 brightly colored balls, or everything in your bag!
Set Up: You can use as many props as you want for this activity. The more the better. Determine a big boundary area and set up your mines all over the infected area. Get everything in your bag out and use them as mines.
Process: Have your participants partner up and give each person a blindfold. The object of this highly visual activity is to verbally guide a blindfolded participant through the mine field without them stepping on any of the “mines”. Verbal directions must come from the sidelines; i.e., the verbal leader is not allowed to stand next to his/her partner within the mine field. Have the partners switch roles after the first has been led through successfully.
- Describe a specific way you and your partner communicated that made you feel better while you were in the mine field?
- What pushed you outside your comfort zone?
- What surprised you about this activity?
- How important was trust in this activity?
