In short: create a character change!

More ideas:

Create a sculpture that portrays

  • Fear → feeling of being afraid
  • Anger → feeling angry. A stronger word for anger is rage
  • Sadness → feeling sad. Other words are sorrowgrief (a stronger feeling, for example when someone has died)
  • Joy → feeling happy. Other words are happinessgladness
  • Disgust → feeling something is wrong or nasty
  • Surprise → being unprepared for something
  • Trust → a positive emotion; admiration is stronger; acceptance is weaker.
  • Anticipation → in the sense of looking forward positively to something which is going to happen. Expectation is more neutral.


Two BA games:

use only your left hand and make a sculpture with your partner.

Instruct your partner in words only how to make a XXX design made out of 3 balloons while being blindfolded (the twister is not blindfolded. just the instructor)


Group games:

one balloon is added by each BA to create a huge hat. Every tenth BA has to pop one balloon instead of adding one.
