Lap circle

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

A lap circle also known: as a Lap Sit, Lap Game or Human chair. Lap Circle is used as an icebreaker of for team building. It is an exercise which is meant to build cooperation, trust and coordination.[1]

The exercise[edit]

A lap circle is formed by a number of people (the more the better) standing in a circle, shoulder to shoulder, all facing towards the center. The next step is for everyone to take a quarter turn to the left (or right) and then on a given command everyone sits on the lap of the person behind them. The end result is everyone is supporting someone and everyone is being supported by another.[2]


The primary use of the exercise is for team building.[1] Businesses sometimes use lap circles as a trust and team building exercise.[2] The exercise can be a good icebreaker for youth groups and can help teach the concept of trust.[3]
