Human Hungry Hungry Hippos Game
This would be such a fun combined young men/young women activity. Would also be great at a family reunion or youth conference!
This video shows the people being pushed and pulled back by humans - I also think it would be fun to tie a rope onto the rolling board and roll them out, then simply pull them back in with the rope. But either way - what a fun activity this could be!! *Just watch those fingers - keep them away from the wheels!*
What you'll need:
1. Some kind of rolling boards that will hold people and put up with being pushed and pulled.
2. Balloons (roughly 30-40)
3. Baskets (round plastic laundry baskets work the best)
4. Rope to tie onto boards if you want to use rope instead of man-power.
Make 4 groups, one in each corner of the room. Each team - at the same time - will push their first player out to the middle trying to capture balloons in their baskets. Pull them back. Next person lays down on board, push them out, collect balloons, pull them back. When all the balloons are gone from the center, count to see which team has the most. Play again.
