Puppets

Type of strategy: Openers & Get to Know You

Create hand made puppets to be used for introductions.

Directions: 

Everyone gets a cheap sock or paper puppet (if you're on a budget).  Ask participants to create a character for the puppet that represents someone at work.  Then, have them use their puppet to introduce themselves to the rest of the group.  This strategy works well for multi-day trainings.
