A game to develop trust


4 chairs, 4 scouts from each patrol


Sit one Scout sideways on a chair. Set a second chair at 90 degrees to the first, such that the second leans back to rest their shoulders on the lap of the first (note the backs of the chairs must be on the "outward" side). Repeat with third and fourth scouts to end with all four forming a square with shoulders on laps. Carefully remove one chair at a time to leave the scouts legs supporting the structure. You may need to get the scouts to lift their hips to get the chairs out.
Variations include - which patrol can hold the table the longest, how far can the table move without collapsing?
