The Human Knot

With the good old British winter still upon us, we have decided to take things indoors. The Human Knot is a perfect teambuilding challenge as it can be played literally anywhere plus no equipment is needed whatsoever…

What you need:

Absolutely nothing (except people of course!).

How to play The Human Knot:

  1. Ask participants to create a circle.
  2. Ask participants to place one of their arms into the centre and grab hold of someone else’s arm (not the person standing next to them).
  3. Ask participants to place their other arm into the centre and grab hold of someone else’s arm (not the person standing next to them).
  4. Now for the fun bit! The ultimate aim of The Human Knot is for participants to end up in a full circle once again without letting go of any hands! However, they are able to go under or over each others arms if needs be.

What skills does The Human Knot utilise:

The challenge encourages communication and cooperation amongst participants in order for them to successfully ‘untangle’ themselves.

""The best party EVER" was the comment I received from the 16 children attending my twins 9th birthday party where Dynamically Awesome provided the party entertainment. Pippa and Nath were brilliant from start to finish. They were prompt in communicating and went over and above expectations in planning to make it the best party ever. They arrived early to set up and were totally in control of the group. The children had a fantastic time and loved all the challenges, especially beating the clock and getting a key to open one of the padlocks on the chest. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you Nath and Pippa for making their birthday a truly brilliant day."
