Throw Me the Emotion
Brief:Play a co-ordination game whilst you talk
Step by Step
- Ask your group to gather in a circle
- Throw the ball to one another, when the person throws, they need to say the name of the person they are throwing the ball to
- You can now change the rule to add in different themes or topics e.g. words to describe how you feel right now, how you felt this morning, how you feel before an exam or words about objects or activities that bring you joy and one’s that don’t.
Things to Consider
Doing something physical at the same time as talking can split the focus of a person to reduce fear of judgement when talking about things. It is also a great way to help someone open up and think though different outcomes, at the same time as improving motor skills, teamwork and coordination.
