  1. Jennifer

    This was such a fun activity. I used it as an energizer and to get the group out into the fresh air. It worked beautifully, and had my group of Fortune 500 financial people laughing and brainstorming. They were SO satisfied with their final solution that they asked me to take a picture of them. Thank you.

      Agreed Jennifer – when the sun is out, this is one of my new go-to exercises. Thanks for sharing 🙂
