Zip Zap Boing

Zip Zap Boing


Everyone stands in a circle. With a lot of energy the first person passes a “zip” around the circle. “Zap” goes across the circle. “Boing” returns the zip to the person who just zipped, and they zip again in the other direction or zap.

Teaching Purpose

A good warm-up for building group connections. Although we’re in the same room physically, it gets people in the same room mentally. People might be thinking of work or worrying about something, so this warm up gets everyone in the same zone. Because you have to focus,  it gradually gets people thinking about the same thing.

Additional Tips for Playing

  • Be ready to pass, leaning forward slightly helps the energy and speed.
  • Try and make eye contact.
