Ha, Ha

Here is another activity from the book "Great Group Games: Boredom-busting, Zero-prep Team Builders for All Ages" by Susan Ragsdale and Ann Saylor.

Have the first person lie down on his/her back on the floor.  The second person then lies down with his/her head on the first person's stomach.  Players continue laying down in this manner until everyone is connected. {Make sure patients can handle this and stay appropriate; if not, find another way to set up the game!}

Without laughing, the first player says "Ha!" The second player then says "Ha, ha!" and the third "Ha, ha, ha!"  Play continues with each new player adding another "ha" each time.  If someone laughs for reals, the group must restart the game with a new leader.
Questions to Consider:
-What makes you laugh?
-Why is laughter good for us?
-How can we laugh more each day?
-How can laughter help us overcome challenges in life?
