Caterpillar Race

Action games Team building games


How To Play Caterpillar Race

Divide your youth group kids into some groups, 4 works well as a relay. Just make sure the groups aren't too big.

Set them up in 4 lines across the room. Then send half of each team to the opposite side of the room.

Give each team a bed-sheet. The first player must drop to the group, roll themselves up in the bed-sheet, then caterpillar crawl across to the other side of the room and unroll themselves. Then the next team mate does the same until the entire team has finished.

Materials Needed

Bedsheets

We played this game, the kids liked it once. But the second time I tried it, they didn't want to play. It makes funny pictures, though.

We played this game tonight at youth group - it was fun! They ended up rolling from side to side instead of crawling :) Good game!

This game sounds like it will be really fun! I'm going to play it tonight at youth group. We have a pretty small and young age group so this should be very funny to watch : )

The kids loved it at a primary school lunchtime group. However, when the last child to do it got all wrapped up she had a panic - her sister explained that she doesn't like being confined in small spaces.
It's advisable to give the kids some warning on this one, especially because everyone was having so much fun it sounded like she was laughing but was in fact crying.
Other than that, the dozen others children loved it. We'll do it again with a warning in a few month's time.
