Cross the Gym on Paper

Stage of Activity 





10 - 15 minutes

Number of People

4+ (Minimum of 4 people per team) 

How it Works

Have the players split up into teams of 4. Each team will have to work as a team to travel the length of the identified playing surface (across a gym) on the pieces of paper, without touching the floor. If someone touches the floor everyone from that team will have to restart. Each team will be given 1 more piece of paper than the number of participants on the team.


This activity works on team work, communication, balance and coordination development.


This activity can be played with larger or smaller pieces of paper to increase or decrease difficultly. Can be played in a field or on a court/gym.
