In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
This cooperative game activity can be done inside or outside, you simply need a large enough space.
Form several small groups of various sizes. Each group makes itself into a human obstacle. These could be physical or verbal obstacles. If the small groups have difficulty deciding what kind of obstacle to be, give some suggestions. Physical obstacles could be:
Verbal obstacles could be:
Players then run the course with their small group. When they get to an obstacle, the obstacle tells them how to pass. As a group of players passes an obstacle, the people in the obstacle become another group that runs the course. When a group gets to the end of the course, they create another new obstacle. This is a fun activity that can go on for as long as you want. You can vary this by not allowing talking or by adding non-human obstacles.
Consider any mobility issues in the group when determining the type of obstacles, to ensure all participants can complete the obstacle course.
