Walk a Mile In Your Shoes

Type of Activity:  Processing / Perspective building

Props Needed:  The shoes on your feet!

Kim Kickert shared this activity during a recent processing workshop.  Thanks for sharing Kim!  This is a great one for those long expeditionary programs and facilitators that don't like to carry a lot of extra weight in props!

Concept:  Getting participants to think about others.

Process:  Have each participant take off one of their shoes and throw it into the center of the circle.

Then have them each choose a shoe at random and then figure out whose shoe they have.

Go around the circle and have each person share why they would want to 'walk a mile in your shoes' about the person whose shoe they have.  Then they can present that person their shoe back.

A great activity to talk about the positives in each person's life.
