Group Size

Small Medium


A bag of candy (e.g. M&M’s or Skittles) or roll of toilet paper

Set Up



Form the group into a circle. Without telling them any of the details of the activity, pass around the bag of candy and tell them to "take as much as you need." Once everyone has taken some and the bag has gone full circle, ask them to tell one fact about themselves for every piece of candy.


Before going camping, bring out a roll of toilet paper and ask everyone to take as much as they need. Then, ask them to share a fact for every square.


When using M&M’s or Skittles assign a specific question to each color of candy.


Red - Childhood memory

Orange - Irrational fear

Yellow - Favorite places

Green - Favorite books/albums/TV shows/movies

Purple - Pet peeve
