For this game you will need several rolls of varying colored duct tape—same colors for each team.  You will also need some old pair of tennis shoes that can be purchased from Goodwill or another second-hand store.  Provide one pair of tennis shoes to each team—according to your group size and makeup.

Pass out the duct tape to each team and then challenge each team to create the most awesome pair of duct-tape tennis shoes.  Invite the students to be creative, making the shoes interesting and colorful by taping their exteriors.  The leader can also supply scissors to each team so that students can cut the tape into shapes and sizes more easily.  Offer prizes to the team with the most creative shoes, the most likely to be worn, the most awesome, etc.
