Game description

The snake run is an ideal game for the outdoors. Right at the beginning, the kids decide who is going to be the head of the snake and therefore is leading the group. Then they line up, one behind the other and put their hands on the shoulders of the person before and close their eyes. Now the snake run can begin. It is up to the team leader to make this run as interesting as possible. Once they eyes are closed, the kids have only their sense of touch to rely on. They can create a funny story from their impressions later. For example, the leader may begin with: “Now we are marching from the beach to an island, while they are walking through a water puddle. The next may say, and now we are marching from the beach to the forest.” There may be gravel or any other uneven surface. It is important that each kid ads at least one piece to the story.


There is no rating. Fun and team spirit what this game comes down to.
