"These Are a Few of My Favourite Things" Memory Game
by Maheshi Premasinghe
This is an ideal game for an attitude-enhancing session like "How to Be Positive".
Have all the delegates stand or sit in a cicle or semi-circle.
You might start things off by playing a video or audio clip of the song "My Favorite Things" from 'The Sound of Music' ("Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...").
Then ask the delegates to go around the room one by one, adding to a list of favourites. For example, Delegate 1 says, "My favourite things are chocolates." Delegate 2 says, "My favourite things are chocolates and shoes." And each delegate keeps adding on.
This requires listening to other's favourites, remembering them, and adding your own. You will end up hearing a list of your favourites like a mantra again and again as it goes around the room.
You can add to the mood by asking them to make wild, carefree gestures while listing the favourites.
