This exercise needs a minimum of two people.
A large piece of corrugated cardboard or foam-core board
2 books or blocks

One major challenge of building a tunnel is making sure that the teams digging from each side meet in the middle. In this activity you will need to describe the location of a tunnel opening on one side of a piece of cardboard to your teammate (e.g. sibling / parent…) who will try to recreate it on the other side.
