  11. Lead the Blind: One person is blind folded.  The other person puts their hand on the blind-folded person’s shoulder and helps guide them around the room using only verbal instructions.
  12. Make a human railroad track. To move the track around the room, the last person moves to the front.  Once they are in position they announce: ready!  The new last person moves to the front.  Repeat.
  13. Stand in a line.  The last person passes an object to the person in front of them.  Continue passing the object forward until it reaches the person at the front of the line.  The person at the front takes the object to the end of the line.  Repeat.pexels-photo-339619.jpeg
  14. Human chain.  Make a line from the pantry to the chef.  The chef tells the first person in the chain what item they need and that person passes the request down the line until it reaches the person at the pantry.  The person at the pantry passes the item down the line to the chef.  Repeat.
  15. See how many family members you can fit in a hula hoop. Walk the hula hoop around the room.
