Two sides of a coin

4 stars

Two sided coinAsk everyone in your group to find a partner.

One person shares a memory or experience that was negative in their life with their partner. It could be something that happened as a child, at school or at work. 

Together they then explore and identify something positive that came from the experience.

After a few minutes, switch places and have the other person share a story.

This activity helps people understand there can be positives that come from all experiences.

Be aware this activity could trigger some sensitive conversations so ensure appropriate supervision and care.
