How to play Put One Leg In and Out
To play Put One Leg In and Out, you will first have to split your group into 2 teams with equal players. One team will assume the role of active players and the other as passive players. To make Put One Leg In and Out an icebreaker game, you should put your players in teams at random.
Step 1: Begin with all the players in your passive team squat and hold hands to form a circle. Be sure to have everyone feel comfortable and safe, ensuring no players will topple over.
Step 2: Have your active players stay near the circle. Their aim is to move their leg inside the circle without being touched. If anybody from the active team manages to do that all active team goes inside the circle and the process repeats but this time they have to move their leg outside the circle.
Variation: Their legs must be already placed over the hands of the passive players to be in the circle. In this case, their task is to move the second leg in or out of the circle.
Note: At the count of 3 (or passive players may count up to ten), all the active players must try to take their leg in or out of the circle without being tagged by the passive players. Likewise, the passive players must then try to tag the legs of the active players by lifting their hands.
The rules of this game are pretty flexible and you can change them for your liking. For example, if you want to make the game more complex, the active players have to take their legs in and out simultaneously.
The team that completes the task most times wins.
