Take What You Need
Do you feel your group’s energy level is dragging?! Maybe it’s early. Maybe it’s late. No matter what the circumstance, here is an energizer to get your group moving.Image
 
Material Needed: A roll of toilet paper or 2 depending on the size of the group. If you are concerned with waste you can also use poker chips or bingo markers or small squares of paper, etc.

Time Required: 10-25 minutes
Group Size:  10-30
Purpose: Getting to know you

  1. Ask participants to form a circle either standing or sitting, whatever is comfortable.
  2. Bring out the roll of toilet paper and tell participants to “Take as much as you think you’ll need”.
  3. Pass it around the circle, and give everyone a chance to take some.
  4. If anyone asks any questions about what they will be using the toilet paper for, or anything like that, just repeat, “take as much as you think you’ll need”.
  5. Once everyone has some, ask participants to count their squares of toilet paper.
  6. Then go around the circle and for every square of toilet paper they took, participants must tell a fact about themselves to the group. For example of you took 7 squares, you must tell 7 facts about yourself to the group.
  7. If you have a really large group and somebody took half a roll you can limit the number to 5 or whatever seems appropriate to stay within your time limit.
