Touch The Can

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Choose an item (eg tin can) and everyone in the group must touch it


Items ranging in size


Get the group around the can. Tell the group they must all be touching the can at once, with their...(finger, toe, knee, elbow, shoulder...) Variations: Depending on the size of the group, use larger and smaller items, and gradually get the group to come closer and closer together physically. Leader can have the group transport the object to a different area (imagine 6 Scouts moving a billy can whilst only being able to touch/hold it with their shoulders!)
