Keep it Simple

Rather than trying to fold the tarp while standing on it, get off the tarp and fold it in half. Then, have everyone on the team get back on the tarp. How small of a tarp can you all stand on?

Take it Further

Once you’ve got the hang of folding the tarp, try flipping it over while everyone is standing on it!
