Human Knot

Players form a close circle. Then everybody reaches out and holds two other people's hands. Now, they must try to untangle the "knot" without letting go. They may have to climb over arms or crawl under arms. It helps to be limber.

Form the same circle, with one player standing outside the circle, facing away.  While holding hands the circle people turned and twisted and went under and over other players' hands.

Then the group chanted, "Doctor, Doctor, we need help."

The "doctor" had to untangle the circle without causing
anyone to break hands.
