Pennies in a basket

This getting-to-know-you exercise is also called ‘Never have I ever’. It’s a simple way of building team bonds and starting conversations.

You don’t need a basket, you can use a hat, bowl or no receptacle at all. You do need some pennies or other small tokens that participants can collect (Peanut M&Ms, maybe?).

This short film shows just a small segment of the activity to give you the idea. You’d probably go round the table about three times when doing it for real. You might want to award a prize for the most adventurous person when you count totals at the end.

P.S. You don’t have to copy my first question from the video. You can start with any question you like.
