I love simple processing activities. When I finish an activity or a day’s worth of programming I often need an easy tool to debrief all of the emotions and experiences we have shared. It doesn’t get much easier than playing with playdough! The classic toy helps the kinesthetic and tactile learners in your group learn while they shape it into different objects. Use this activity for groups looking to move and create while they process.
Number of Participants: 6-45
Time: 5-15 minutes
Activity Level: Low
Objective: To use the playdough to sculpt your thoughts about an activity or workshop.
Instruct the participants to use playdough to sculpt their emotions or feelings about the activity or workshop.
That’s it! It doesn’t get much easier than that. Have you used playdough as a debriefing tool? What tools or props do you use to process a group?
