Posted on by Brandon Klein

PASS THE CLAP - Simple energizing exercise. 

1- Everyone stand in a circle

2- You essentially pass one clap to the next person

3- After people go around the first time slowly, try it again the other direction

4- Then speed things up

5- Finally introduce clapping both directions- aka - as one clapis being passed around - as it reaches the midpoint, start one the other direction. 

BtoF&LtoR: Simple energizing exercise to move around the room: 

One of the simplest exercises around. After a group has been sitting for a while- simply ask the folks on the right side of the room to move to the left and the left to the right. Front to back, back to front. Have each person introduce themselves to one person they don't know along the way! 


Pick the people who would make up your Mt. Rushmore and explain why! 


FINALLY: Turn to your neighbors and give them a great warm smile
