This is a fun activity which generates a lot of laughter and therefore is ideal as an energiser especially after a long training session. This exercise works best with groups of people who know each other already; however it can be used with new teams as well.


Delegates to interpret and explain drawings by other participants.

What You Need

A sheet of flip chart paper for each participant

Coloured pens for delegates


  • Explain to participants that they have 5 minutes to draw a scene out of their normal day in the office or at work. Encourage delegates to get creative and use colours in their drawings.
  • Collect the flip chart sheets after 5 minutes and distribute them randomly between delegates so that everyone has a sheet.
  • Ask for volunteers to stick their given flip chart sheets on the board or wall and try to interpret and explain the drawing on it. Once their explanation has finished, you can ask the drawer of the image to clarify what the drawing means.


Explaining the Test: 5 minutes.

Activity: 5 minutes

Group Feedback: 10 minutes.

I found the activity to be very creative and interesting in motivating and inspiring candidates or trainees to retain their attention span after a considerable long session in a training module or program.
