Tarantula challenge instructions

It’s quite physical and doesn’t involve actual tarantulas.

  1. Put young people in groups of 4 or 3. Helps if they are all about the same height in a group.
  2. Each sits on a chair sideways, close to each other, in a circle.
  3. They all have to lean back onto each other’s knees and grab hold of arms/ shoulders.
  4. Then you take the chairs away, and they have to stay up. Hey Presto! A tarantula.

    1. “Walk'” a short distance as the Tarantula.
    2. Put a pot of water on their stomachs and get them to walk a short distance.

Good luck!
