Here is a testimonial from one of our customers:
"We at Amherst use the Webbing we have for Raccoon Circles all the time! The Raccoon Circles are great and the students love going from circle to circle, doing a new activity and seeing who gets to leave next. We also use the Webbing when we make circles hold hands and pass them without touching along with hula hoops. The kids realize it takes a great deal more cooperation and concentration to pass the Webbings rather than the hoops. The kids come up with some excellent suggestions to help each other be successful."

Here is one of our favorite Ice Breaker activities using webbing:
Grand Prix Racing
Props needed: Webbing tied into circles
Playing the Game: Thanks to Tom Heck for not only the idea for this activity, but also the enthusiasm to lead it effectively. This activity will boost the enthusiasm of your audience, and provide some moderate competition in the process.
Begin by spreading several Raccoon Circles around the available space, in close proximity to each other. Ask participants to join one of the “racing teams”, picking their favorite color team in the process. You’ll need approximately 5 to 10 participants per Raccoon Circle. Have participants hold the Raccoon Circle with both hands in front of them.
Ladies and Gentlemen! It is summertime, and that means one thing in this part of the world - Grand Prix Racing! Now I know that you are such die-hard race fans that just the thought of a race makes your heart beat faster. So this race comes in three parts. First, when I say that “we’re going to have a race”, your response is a “Tim the Tool Man” response (sort of a grunting version of ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-O!) Next I’ll say, “start your engines!” and I want to hear your best race car sounds (audience practices making race car revving engine, shifting gears and braking sounds).
Finally, with so many cars on the track today, it will be difficult to see just which group finishes their race first, so we’ll need a sign indicating when your group is finished. That sign is to raise your hands (and the Raccoon Circle) above your heads and yell “Yessssssssss!”
