This is a simple exercise that can be used at any point in the day to help participants to express their feelings without words. It is fun and easy, but also reveals a lot about the mood of the group.
Group exercise, Icebreaker
Key explanation points
- Ask each participant to go into the middle of the circle and ‘mime’ how they feel (that is, show without words, just movement).
- This can also be helpful feedback for the evaluation process.
Participants may initially feel shy to express themselves, but as they warm up, they will tend to be very creative, moving and funny.
