Over and Under Team Building Exercise
Teams stand in long lines facing each other back to front. At the head of each line there a bucket of water and at the other end a plastic empty container. A sponge is given to the person at the head of the line where the water bucket is. That person has to dip the sponge in the water to soak in as much water as they can. They have to then pass the soaking wet sponge OVER THEIR HEAD to the person behind - who then passes the sponge to the person behind them THOUGH THEIR LEGS. The sponge makes its way back OVER THE HEAD of one person and BETWEEN THE LEGS of the next until it gets to the person standing next to the empty container. That person must squeeze whatever water is left into the empty container and run the sponge back up to the head of the line. When that happens, everybody moves back one position - and the person who was at the back of the line now is at the head of the line. This continues until the team has rotated – the team with most water in the container wins.
Over and Under is an activity used in the Beach Day Team Building Event
