Energizers

Country  : Bulgaria

Describtion of Energizer :On a random chance the participants are divided into several pairs.  In every pair, first, one of them closes their eyes and the other one hold them to the hands and walk them through the obstacles withouth bumping their partner in them or in another person. After 1-2 minutes they change roles and the other one leads. After another couple of minutes all the participants make a long human chain and everyone's eyes are closed except the leader's ones. He leads the group wherever he wants and he need to be slow enough so nobody torn the chain. Leaders of course can be switched during the game.

Description of Energizer : 

1. Tell people they will be following simple commands. The first two: When you say “walk” they will start walking around the space. When you say “stop,” they will stop where they are.

2. Call out “Walk.” Then “stop.” And repeat as desired.

3. Next, tell everyone you are going to switch those two commands. Now when you say “stop” they should start walking and when you say “walk” they should stop walking.

4. Call out “Stop.” Then “Walk.” And repeat as desired.

5. Next, let them know you’re adding two more commands. When you say “Name” they say their name out loud, when you say “Clap” they clap once. The other two commands stay the same, so “Walk” means stop, “Stop” means walk, “Name” means say your name, and “Clap” means clap.

6. Call out a combination of “Walk,” “Stop,” “Name,” and “Clap.” Repeat as desired.

7. Finally, let them know you’re switching the last two commands. So “Walk” means stop, “Stop” means walk, “Name” means clap, and “Clap” means say your name. Repeat as desired.

8. More combination of words can be added if necessary
