Training course contents:
You can download this one page set of instructions for the team building game, ‘Bomb Disposal’ from the link at the bottom of this page. Alternatively, you can follow the instructions on this page.
Tools – a jar (must have a rim at the top) filled with coloured water (the bomb). A rope, ribbon or something to section off a square around the ‘bomb’. String – used to lift the bomb out of the area
Instructions – the group is not allowed to come within 3-4 meters of the object (=bomb).
A safety ribbon is used to cordon off the area which is not allowed to be entered.
The participants task is to ‘defuse’ the bomb. They do this by lifting the bomb out of the area using nothing but the string provided and transporting it 10 metres without touching the ground and laying it down in a target area (defined by the trainer).
Uses – this is great for re-energising a group and is also fantastic for communication, co-ordination and teamwork. To add a twist, you can ask participants to provide their opinion on how long the task will take and provide a prize to the closest guess.
