The Stuck to the Wall Challenge

Stuck to the Wall is a crazy and hilarious activity to develop teamwork skills, strengthen group cohesion and inspire creativity.

Primero, ubique una pared ancha, sólida y sin pintar. Desecha las paredes que estén hechas de yeso.

Rather, look for a wide, solid unpainted cinderblock, concrete or brick wall. Timber can work, but it must be paint-free.

Armed with a box of duct tape rolls, break your group into random small teams of 5 or 6 people. Distribute a small roll of duct tape to each team.

Challenge each team to suspend and/or attach one of their team members to the wall using the duct tape only.
Announce that the person must be suspended for at least 10 seconds to be successful.

No other props are permitted to help the team accomplish this task.
Allow 10 to 15 minutes for planning and execution.

Some tips:

  • The feet of the suspended should not be more than 50 cm (2’) off the ground
  • The application of tape should be preferably and carefully applied to clothing and not skin.

When you’re done, invite your group to reflect on what happened during the exercise.

Moment of Reflection
  • What was the most difficult part of the task? – What was easy?
  • What process did your group use to make decisions? Were all ideas explored?
  • What strategies did they adopt and why? Were they effective?
  • Knowing what you know now, would you do anything different next time?
