Brand X Kids Build and Move a Fort

Using objects at your disposal, create two identical structures for players to build and pass through in some way. Divide the group into two teams. Place three cones in a line 15 meters apart in front of each structure. Each team is instructed to memorize the structure, pass through one at a time, take it apart after each member has passed through, one piece at a time, and reconstruct the “fort” at the next cone. Repeat at third cone. Teams are instructed to sit down and call time once each member has passed through at the final cone.
