Coming In To Land
An idea for a team game
Children are likely to develop their co-operation, co-ordination and trust in others in this team game.
You need at least ten children for this activity
How to play
Divide the children into two teams; the teams take it in turns to be the ‘plane’ and the ‘obstacles’.
One player in the plane team becomes the plane itself, and has his or her eyes covered (they can look down if this is easier), and the rest of the team verbally guide the blindfolded child around the obstacles, who are standing dotted along the runway.
The plane gets a penalty point for every obstacle it touches. If they get five points or more, the plane crashes and it the other team get the chance to be planes.
The game continues until everyone has had a chance to be the plane.
