Ring on a String - Giant Size   Ring on a String - Giant Size Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
a blindfold
30-40 foot rope
hula hoop or similar circular object
1x1 foot marker for each participant - a sheet of paper works.
Place the markers randomly around the play about 3 or 4 feet apart.
Place the pile of rope in about the center of the area, within reach of at least one marker.
Good way to see that in a team, some of the most important jobs are not necessarily the leaders. Success relies on constant communication.

If the group is too large, participants get bored standing on their marker waiting to be involved.
Ask for a volunteer or select patrol leader.
Everyone else takes position on a marker.
Tell everyone that they can not move their feet for the rest of the challenge.

Challenge #1: Everyone must have 2 hands on the rope and the rope can not cross over itself.

When Challenge #1 is complete, put the blindfold on the volunteer, give him the hula hoop, and guide him to one end of the rop.

Challenge #2: The hula hoop must pass from one end of the rope to the other without touching the rope or anyone standing on a marker.

How much teamwork was required?
Who was the leader?
Did leadership change through the challenge? How?
Who had the most important job?
Did the hoop carrier lead or follow?

Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
