An activity that gives anyone who wants to a chance to comment on how the session has gone
*You will need a bean bag, ball or small soft toy.
Time: 10-15 minutes
Why do we like it?
It ends the session with quiet reflection, giving everyone a chance to address the whole group if they want to.
How does it work?
- Explain that this is a chance for anyone to say any final thoughts about the session and the subjects you have been talking about, to speak you have to be holding the ball or toy, explain that anyone can speak but no-one has to.
- Begin with a positive comment reflecting on the session and praising the group for their effort and then offer the ball or toy out.
- Avoid handing it to the person next to you as this can build the expectation that it has to be passed sequentially around the circle.
- Once everyone who wants to speak has done so take the ball or toy back, thank the group and end the session.
