This exercise is quite commonly known (I just don't know what you call it…). This requires two people. What you have to do is stand one person behind the other. The person infront has to fall into the others arms. You have to trust that they are going to catch you. WARNING : Try to make sure both people are of the same weight or height because I once tried this as my younger cousin insisted on catching me and I fell straight on my back! I almost fell on top of her too! You can do this in a group but somebody stand from a height and everybody has there arms laid out for them to land on.
This trust exercise requires some setting up before it can be executed. It also requires a large, open area such as a room without furniture or an empty parking lot. The leader must distribute “mines,” which they place haphazardly around the area. These “mines” can be balls, bowling pins, cones, etc. This exercise gives co workers a chance to work on their relationships and trust issues, which is why they are paired into teams of two. One team member will be blindfolded and cannot talk and the other can see and talk, but cannot enter the field or touch their blindfolded team mate. The challenge requires each blind-folded person to walk from one side of the field to the other, avoiding the mines by listening to the verbal instructions of their partners. Penalties can be put in place for each time a blindfolded person hits a mine. To make this game even harder, do it without the ability to talk to them! My tip is use sounds that can mean different things! Discuss it beforehand! Or you could make everybody blindfolded and one person has to direct them into a corner of the room or a 'box' (you can make one out of cones or makers).
For this exercise you need about 20 people and their arms intersecting and overlapping each other. One person won't be doing the task and what their job is to walk across the hands and make it to the end. This one is quite difficult so it should be for older people with a lot of strength so NOT to be done by small children!
This exercise requires at least about 4 people or more. What you have to do it everybody surrounds one person in a circle and the person in the middle has to have their legs together and arms by there sides. Then the middle person has to learn towards a member of the circle and they have to push the person around the circle. Best way to do this is when the middle person has their eyes closed or they are blindfolded :D
