Human Knot

This is a classic ice-breaker game and teamwork activity, but I thought I would post it today so we have it here as a resource.  Enjoy!


To form the knot, have the participants stand in a circle, shoulder to shoulder.  Have everyone hold out their right hands and place it in the center.  Hold right hands with another person.  Then do the same with the left hands.  Make sure that the left hand is holding a different person's hand than the right hand!  The object is to untangle the knot by using good communication and moving over and under the group until the knot is untangled.

Process the activity.  Discuss what worked and didn't work as the group tried to undo the knot.  Talk about boundaries if necessary.
