Game: Helium Stick
This game will help children work together and teach them to trust each other. Have the children stand in a circle, hold their arms parallel to the ground and stick out their pointer fingers. Place a light weight but large object on their outstretched fingers, such as a hula hoop or stick. Tell them they must lower it to the ground without their fingers losing contact. You will find that children are usually surprised when the stick seems to float upwards although they are trying to will it down–hence the name “helium” stick. Help the children develop a sound strategy for moving the “stick” down, such as counting and moving it inch-by-inch or dropping one side at a time.
