This activity is designed to have each person share things about himself or herself with the group.

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 or roll of toilet paper and tell them to "take as much as you need." Once everyone has taken some, ask them to tell one fact about themselves for every piece of candy.


When using M&M’s or Skittles assign a specific question to each color of candy. e.g. Red - Childhood memory, Orange - Irrational fear, Yellow - Favorite places, Green - Favorite books/albums/TV shows/movies, Purple - Pet peeve

You could also use this as a reflection activity and have each participant share one thing they learned or one thing they are going to do different for each piece of candy.
