Time: 5 minutes
Skills: Mime, Improvisation

Develop imagination and mime skills using everyday objects

Pass any easy-to-handle object around the circle – or place it in the centre – for example a shoe, a bucket or a chair. Each person uses it in turn – changing it into a different object each time.

It can be anything – apart from what it really is!

  • As a variation, other members of the group can step into the improvisation so that a short scene develops.
  • Try doing it to music.
