Wiffle Balls & Pipe Cleaners

Wiffle Balls & Pipe Cleaners Recharger Activity

Materials:  One wiffle ball and one pipe cleaner per participant


Direct each participant to put the pipe cleaner through four holes of the wiffle ball–using only one hand– and then twist the two ends of the pipe cleaner at the top.  Ask each person to hold up their wiffle ball when everyone at their table has completed the task.

Most participants will complete this task individually; however, usually one pair will figure out that they can help each other by holding one another’s ball.

This activity can be debriefed by discussing the need for collaboration, the advantages of requesting help, etc.
