Get Active: Hands In

Wednesday 21st August 2019

Get the group kneeling in a circle, with both hands placed flat in front of them. Then each young person moves their right hand in between the person on their right’s hands. Thus create an alternating hand pattern. To start, one person calls out the tapping direction, left or right and slaps their hand once on the ground. The hand closest to the first slap (in the named direction) slaps the ground, then then next closest, and so on. If hand A slaps, hand B can either single slap or double slap. A single slap keeps the slap going in the same direction, but a double slap changes the direction so the slap travels away in the opposite direction. If someone slaps out of turn, they must remove that hand. All other hands stay where they are, even if they are no longer crossed over. A person is out of the game when both their hands are out. The game is over when there are only two people left. Try and go faster as the game progresses.
