      Great activity, some may also know this as “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Cheerleader” again lots of energy and everyone can continue to participate. Be aware of the quieter participants who might not be to comfortable with the volume that can result from the activity.

        You make a good point re being sensitive to the need of different participants. As discussed throughout playmeo, our recommended approach is to adopt a sequential framework that builds and strengthens one’s Comfort zone before inviting them to ‘stretch’ a little.
