Group Question Toss

  • Create the Question Ball: Choose a large ball (Rubber ball, beach ball, etc.) and write out questions on the ball’s surface.  If you want to be able to reuse the ball to address other therapeutic issues then you can use a overhead pen or write the words in sharpie paint pens.  Then when you want to change the questions, you can cover then with dry erase marker and wipe them away (see here).
  • Playing the Game: The group forms a circle and begins passing the ball back and forth across the circle.  Each time someone catches the ball they read and answer the question that ends up in front of them.  I place a mix of surface questions and ones that go a little deeper near each other so the person with ball can choose what they are comfortable answering.
  • Candy Ball Version: Click here for instructions on how to play a similar game where you create a ball out of plastic wrap with questions and candy in each layer.  It’s great for workshops and groups and a perfect use for leftover Halloween candy.
