When I think of this fun, fast-paced group initiative I think of my friend and mentor Karl Rohnke. I have vivid memories of him inventing this on a program I was co-facilitating with him in North America. If you’re familiar with Turnstyles, then you’re going to love Hot Box. It involves a lot more people at the same time and is accomplished much quicker than the original. If you need a high-energy, quick problem-solving exercise for a large group, this is it.
This is another in a long line of health & wellness activities contributed by Lisa Laura, one of our wonderful playmeo team members. Health and well-being is Lisa’s thing, and Affirming Thoughts is the latest exercise she offers to help you develop and promote healthy and supportive relationships. If you’re looking for a set of guided meditations in which your group is feeling really good about themselves at the end, give this one a whirl.
As they say, necessity is the mother of creativity. This is exactly the source of this latest ice-breaking name game that can be played in person, but especially with virtual gatherings. All you need is paper and markers and a minute or two. Breaking the ice and learning some names may be one of your objectives, but you will also have the opportunity to facilitate a range of teachable moments such as risk-taking, perspectives, diversity and willingness to fail.
I have been wanting to get this fun, high energy group game uploaded for years. It’s finally here. You’ll need to get your hands on a set of rubber deck rings, the type that you can sometimes find in pet stores as dog toys. Divide your group into small teams of 3 or 4 people, demonstrate how dolphins play golf, and then let ’em loose. I promise you will quickly raise the heartbeats of your group in no time.
