Team Building, Ice Breaker Game - 2 Scouts on a shrinking desert island.


Broadsheet Newspaper


Scouts work in pairs. Place a sheet of newspaper on the floor. The newspaper is the island, The rest of the hall is shark infested water.

1. Both scouts must be standing on the newspaper and hold their position for 5 seconds to advance to the next round.
2. Each round fold the paper in half to make the island smaller.

As the island gets smaller, Scouts may stand on one leg and lean out, piggy back etc.
