Program description for the Ice cube race:

A fun game that encourages team communication, collaboration and support.

Items needed: 

A pair of chopsticks for each participant, two trays of ice cubes, a large plastic cup for each team.


We will give a pair of chopsticks to each person and split the group into two equal teams, and we’ll give to each team one of the large plastic cups.

Then, we will arrange the seats so that each member will sit side by side in one row.  On one side (next to the first person in row) we’ll place the tray of ice cubes on the floor. On the other side (next to the last person in row) we’ll place the plastic cup on the floor.

The task of each team is to move the ice cubes using only their chopsticks from the tray to the plastic cup. The winner is the team that will have the most ice cubes in their cup by the end of the game.

Team members can only use their chopsticks and can only move one ice cube at a time.


Program description for The Flying carpet:


The team is flying over the desert on their flying carpet and suddenly they spot a stand storm heading towards them in the opposite direction.  The team will have to turn the carpet around to escape crashing and a slow and agonizing death but there are some problems. There is no steering wheel on the carpet, and they have to perform the maneuver in mid-air as they cannot land!

Tools/Items required: 
Carpet, the team


The team has to remain on the carpet at all times – no-one may step off, jump up and down or be held off the ground for the entire exercise.
If anyone touches anything other than the carpet, like the ground, then the team will have to start again.

Safety precautions: 

Do not move too quickly – you may fall over.
Maximum number in a team is 8.
