4+

Supplies you’ll need:

None.

Game run-through:

Split your group into equal-sized teams of 4 to 10 people. The optimal group size generally is about 6-7.

Give the young people an item or scene they must create but explain that they are not allowed to use any items to create it, only their bodies. Give the young people 90-120 seconds to do the task in and at the end of the time limit explain that they must be in their created pose.

When they have formed their item you can go around and inspect each item and give a point to the group you feel has best made it.

Some ideas for items they must create: a car, a bulldozer, a kitchen, a football match or other sporting event, a guitar, a farmyard etc.

For an additional challenge you may like to have the young people have an action they must prepare for their item. For example, if the team has to make a car, when you inspect it you may like to see if they can move forward and back as a car would.

Safety and safeguarding:

Explain in the rules not to climb on anything or anyone, as this can help make it both more challenging but also prevent anyone getting hurt from a fall.
