Awhile ago a new question type called an activity station was introduced. But what kind of tasks do challenge teams in such locations? There are a couple of ideas in this post.In the activity station an instructor decides whether a team has passed the bar of competing the task and also grades their performance. Tasks can involve measuring speed, durability, accuracy or even creativity.
Some easy ideas to set up tasks that are held in activity stations in team games:
+A marshmallow challenge aka building the highest marshmallow tower out of spaghetti and candies.
+Doing a handcuffed exercise where two teammates tied to each other have to free themselves without cutting the rope.
+Being sucessful to eliminate “toxic waste”- The task is very well described here
+Turning around a flying carpet.The description of the exercise is here.
+Fishing for crabs from the ocean- yes in some countries you can catch a remarkable amount under 10 minutes! : )
+One minute gamers. If you haven’t, check their youtube channel. They have plenty of easy props setups which are loaded with fun physical challenges. Seriously, these are some excellent quick team tasks!
