Silver Bullets is used effectively by many people from teacher, counselors and therapist to church leaders. But it can also be very effective if you are for example a camp director. Silver Bullets is great when dealing with initiative problems. It contains a lot of adventure games and trust activities. The activities in this book will bring people together, help building trust, break down barriers. But most of all it will provide a enthusiastic vibe amongst the group.
The activities are adaptable to every age.
This crazy tap game can give many insights into patterns and it can go all sorts of ways. With children it can often be about ‘honesty’, with adults I use this exercise to look at ‘setting goals’.
This activity promotes:
Time: 5 – 10 min
Participants: 6 – 40
nothing, at most markings to line out the playing field.
Call the participants together and then give the instruction.
This game can be used as an energizer, but I usually use it functionally.
How it works
Don’t play on wet grass. Give instruction about ’tapping’ (soft, don’t hit).
Points of attention
This activity works well to keep people in parallel with the world at work or at home.
