A Ball of Yarn

Everyone stands in a circle. The first person takes a ball of yarn and throws it to someone while holding on to a thread. The person who catches the ball keeps the thread and passes it on to the next person while the person who threw the ball starts imitating the person who they are throwing it to, copying each of their movements. The ball keeps being thrown until it reaches the person who began the circle. A ball can be used for this game but the wool is useful for visually representing the ties in the group, suggesting group cohesion and the feeling that we are doing something together.
