Roar VBS Game Jungle Trust Walk

Supplies: spray bottles (enough for every player), water, chairs or something similar to use as obstacles

Description: Set up your play area by using chairs/pylons etc. as boundaries and place some of them within the play area as obstacles, the play area can be as long as you like but make sure it is only about 8 ft wide. Ask the players to form two lines facing each other with the obstacles in between them. Choose one player to be the explorer and go through the obstacle course. The explorer will be blindfolded and the rest of the players will be given a full spray bottle. The goal is for the explorer to make it through the obstacle course safely but also while being sprayed by the remaining players that are lined on either side of them. Choose one player to be the guide, this players job is to call out directions to the explorer so they know whether to climb over a chair, get down low, go left or right etc. The remaining players’ jobs are to spray the explorer for fun and especially if the explorer gets too close or is heading in the wrong direction. The water also might cause the explorer to get distracted at times, and of course its quite refreshing! Once a player has finished the obstacle course they get into line and you pick a new guide and new explorer. Play until everyone has been the explorer and guide, or as long as you like. Who can make it through getting sprayed the least? The most? Who can make it through the course the best?
