Walk the plank
A water game with a pirate theme
Supported by the GGNZ Programme Team
Chalk or rope
Tell the young people they have been captured by pirates. Their only way to escape is to walk the plank with their own water supply.
Mark two lines for the plank on the floor if running indoors, or use rope for outside.
Put a bucket at each end of the plank.
Each young person takes a cup of water and walks the plank blindfolded, team members can shout to them if they are about to walk off the plank they also need to shout when they reach the end.
They then have to find the bucket still blindfolded and pour the water into the bucket.
