Paper Plates

A good end-of-the-week game to encourage members of the group.
Paper plates and markers.
How To Play
Sit comfortably in a circle and relax in a room. Each person is given a paper plate and some markers. That person then writes their name on the paper plate.

After everyone has their name written, everyone passes their paper plate one person to the left. Each person writes a note (or one positive adjective) on that person's paper plate that they think describes the owner of the plate. Then then pass the plate to the left again and the process continues.

This continues until everyone receives their own paper plate back, filled with encouraging messages and words about the strengths their peers see in them.
