Baking bread (or baking oven) is a trust building game for groups of 7 or more people.


You don't need any special equipment to play that game.


The players (all except one) are standing in two rows, always two players face-to-face with each other and holding each other's hands. Together, they are symbolizing the baking oven.

The remaining player (he is the dough or the bread) puts himself in the oven by laying down on the hands. Then, he is kneaded (shaken, thrown in the air a few centimeters, etc.) and rested alternately. Of course, it is very important, especially when he is thrown, that he does not fall out of the oven. The referee has to take care that the group is not kneading too intensely.


  • When enough people are forming the oven, you can transport the dough from one end of the line to the other one by not throwing him upwards but along the line of players.
