Players are divided into groups of 8 to 10. One player from each group lies on the ground and the rest of the group put gentle but firm downward pressure on the body of that person with the palms of their hands. At the same time there should be a group count to ten, after which time every group member should place their hands under the member lying on the floor and swiftly lift them into the air and above their shoulders. The person is then gently lowered to the ground. Each person, in turn, should experience being lifted by the others.
The group stands in a closed circle in queue formation with their right shoulders towards the centre of the circle. The circle closes so that everyone is touching the person in front and behind them. Players hold the waist of the person in front of them. Everyone carefully bends their knees until they feel themselves supported on the knees of the person behind.
Note: This can only be successful if the circular shape is maintained throughout and it is helpful if the group leans slightly towards the centre as they are trying to settle down.
Variations: After secure sitting position is achieved.
1. Everyone stretches arms in unison.
2. Try alternate stepping with the right and left feet, (very difficult).
Divide players into pairs. Ask them to touch all ten fingers. One player closes her/his eyes. The other player leads the ‘blind’ by the fingertips. Some obstacles should be placed around the room so that the pairs have to navigate around them.
