Take a large bowl of “MnMs” or “Smarties” and ask each participant to take some and hold them in their hand. After the whole group has received them, tell them that for each “MnM” they have in their hand they must come up with a fact about themselves.
Red = something that makes them angry
Orange = something that makes them happy
Green = their favourite place in nature
Yellow = something that they are afraid of
Blue = something that makes them sad
Brown = something they want to change about themselves
Required: Sufficient packs of “MnMs”/ “Smarties” to supply the whole group with a handful.
Players are divided into groups of 10-15. They must stand very close together. Tell them to reach out their arms and grab the hands of two other people in the group, but not the one of the person/s next to them. Now they are a human knot and must use teamwork to untangle themselves into one circle without letting go of their hands.
Card sets need to be made up prior to the exercise. Cards should be randomly handed to all players who are then told to mill around the room. At a signal from the leader they have to find the family group to which they belong. The Daddy needs to be seated first. Mummy sits on top of Daddy. Junior sits on top of Mummy and Baby, sits on top of Junior. The last group to get in a pile of four loses.
Required: Sets of four cards are created in family groups.
E.g.: Daddy Freud, Mummy Freud, Baby Freud, Freud Junior. (other names could include Disney, Bush, Gates, Schwarzenegger etc)
