Purpose: An team challenge that focuses on communication and leadership.
Materials: One Blindfold for each participant, One index card per participant with numbers on them
- Give each participant a number card, instruct them not to share it with anyone, and then blindfold each participant and have them return their number card to you.
- The goal is for the group to put themselves in numeric order while blindfolded, without talking.
- For older groups, here’s a great way you can increase the level of difficulty. Do not give the participants consecutive numbers. Skip around with little regard to the pattern, for example 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 14, 17, 18. Be sure to always have a “1” and the number that represents the number of participants in the activity.
