Let's do something relaxing. In this game we're going to be completely silent and completely in somebody else's hands.


The rules is also available in 1 other languages: Deutsch

  1. Let's stand in a circle. It should be a close circle. Our shoulders should almost touch each other.
  2. Lift your hands to chest level.
  3. Who wants to start? Please go in the middle and close your eyes.
  4. Let yourself fall. Keep the tension and trust in the others. They will catch you.
  5. Make sure that you can step back a bit. Give the person in the middle an impulse so she/he swings to the opposite site.

This is how this game can look in detail:

Possible extensions

  • In case the group has already strong bonds, the people in the circle can also close their eyes.
