Directions

In pairs, ask participants to stand facing one another with arms positioned elbows in, palms facing partner (like patty cake). Participants should start standing approximately 1 foot apart. With hands out, partners lean forward so that hands meet flat against one another with no interlocking fingers (keeping elbows in) and push against one another creating a springboard. Partners then take small steps back, repeating the activity at increasingly further distances apart. The objective is for partners to complete the activity, standing as far apart as possible while maintaining safety and a sense of trust.
