Magic Cane Team Building Exercise

Teams are given a magic cane (also known as helium stick) which they must lower to the ground, using just their index fingers. All participants must remain in contact with it at all times – what seems like a simple task, can become incredibly frustrating and funny for all involved.

Everybody’s index fingers must remain in contact with the cane at all times. Pinching or grabbing is not permitted, the cane must rest on top of fingers only. If anyone’s finger is caught not touching the magic cane, the challenge will be restarted.
