Fun energiser to create energy and fun. Great to use after breaks such as lunch or coffee breaks.
The group must move in sync in order to keep the circle intact
- No materials needed
1) Form a circle with people where each member must put their hands on the shoulders of the person in front;
2) The facilitator will describe the following commands:
>> apple means everybody jumps forward at the same time (dont break the circle);
>> orange means everybody jumps backwards;
>> Banana means everybody jumps back turning 180 degree so they will put their hands over the shoulders of the person behind. The facilitate tell them to turn left or right just to create a pattern and people dont get confused when doing the movement.
Easy mode: the facilitator will be giving commands in a slow pace. ex. apple!... banana!.... apple!.... orange! with few seconds between commands;
Moderate mode: facilitator will combine 2 commands. ex: banana-apple!... orange-apple!
Insane mode: facilitator will combine three our more commands.
