Big Room Games, Games & Icebreakers

Skin the Snake


Have two teams of students (girls vs. guys) stand in a line. A big room or long hall is best as this takes quite a length of space.

Have each kid reach under her/his legs with her/his right hand and hold the left hand of the person behind him. The person at the back of the line lies down consecutively as each one walks backward. Move slowly and be careful not to step on each other’s bodies!

When everyone has laid down, it’s time to stand back up as they Skin the Snake. A leader may have to help them stand. Coming up is harder than laying down so go slow! Don’t forget to keep holding hands! Whoever succeeds first wins.
