Statues and Artists

Tuesday 1st September 2020

Get Active: Statues and Artists 

Age Group: Juniors

Time: 15 Minutes

Preparation Needed: Ready to Go

What You’ll Need:

  • No Equipment

Getting into the Activity:

A game which encourages creativity as well as listening to and giving clear instructions.

For each round, one person should be nominated as the ‘statue’ and they should stand at one end of the meeting space. The rest of the group should be split into pairs and spread out around the meeting space. One person in each pair should have their back to the statue and the other person should be stood in front of their partner, so they can see both their partner and the statue (maintaining social distance where required).

On go, the statue should strike a pose – the sillier the better. Everyone else has 60 seconds to try to recreate the pose in the pairs. The person facing the statue can give verbal commands to their partner (who can’t see the statue) to help them re-create the pose. The person giving the commands can’t pull the pose themselves for their partner to copy. After 60 seconds a leader should take a look at each statue and determine which is the best likeness. Award point(s) to the best statue(s). Continue playing with a new person nominated to be the statue.

The pair with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.

Variation – Play this game with one person being the statue, one person nominated to give the commands and everyone else tasked with trying to re-create the pose by listening to the commands. Can the person giving the commands give clear enough instructions which everyone can follow at the same time?


Keeping Everyone Safe

Maintain social distancing where required. You may wish to use cones or markers on the floor to help young people remember where their playing area is.
