Animal Crackers – Free Energiser

Duration: 10 - 20 minutes

Intended for:

Use this free energiser as a way of re-energising a group when the levels drop or just after lunch.

Training course contents:

A one page instruction sheet on the energiser, ‘Animal Crackers’ can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the instructions below.

Place participant’s chairs in a large circle and ask them each to take a seat. Stand in the middle of the circle and explain that you are now going to demonstrate three different types of animals to the group.

Elephant – Hold shoulder of one arm against nose and wave it at the floor.

Monkey – Hold each ear and puff out cheeks.

Alligator – Place both arms out in front of you and clap your palms together, up and down in a snapping motion

Explain that you will go around the group and point to a person. That person must immediately take the shape of an elephant (as above), while the person to the right of them takes the shape of a monkey and the person to the left takes the shape of an alligator.

The person out of the three that is slowest to take the correct shape loses and must come to the centre of the room and start the process again.

The game ends when you feel that enough people have been involved in the process and the energy levels are raised. This energiser causes much laughter and is great for re-energising a group.


Use this energiser to energise a group and get the laughter levels up.
