    I use this activity at the start of most of my corporate team events. Everyone participates. There is a lot of laughter. And there are so many applications! I typically start with the “mirrored” part and then do the “race” to 30 simply because it works well with my programming. And oftentimes I follow this with an activity the divides my group in half. Winners of the activity are one group and …non winners are the other.
