Children of all ages love to play this.
It's a fun way to share your thoughts, especially if you are shy, because everyone is looking at the web construction and not necessarily staring at you while you speak.
It's a fun get to know you game.
- Gather in a circle.
- Decide what to talk about or just go with the flow.
- Grab a ball of yarn.
- Hold the yarn tight with one hand and throw the ball of yarn to another person.
- That person holding the yarn speaks, holds the yarn tight and throws the ball to someone else.
- Repeat over and over and over.
It is also an opportunity to talk about connections between a community of people...the circle of living...the web of life.
You can also get silly, or invent your own activities, when everyone is finished sharing.
I guarantee the children will want to speak more often!
