Pop the Problem – Free Energiser

Duration: 10 - 20 minutes

Intended for:

This free energiser is useful to provide participants with an opportunity to get issues of their chest and then enjoy the feeling of physically making it disappear.

Training course contents:

A one sheet set of instructions for the energiser, ‘Pop the Problem’ can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.

Materials Needed:

Pack of balloons, marker pens, big pin.


Participants must consider issues they have with a given topic and formulate these into problems.

These problems are then written onto blown up balloons until there is a collection of balloons in the room, which all represent a problem.

The group as a whole will then work on each problem in turn until they have a satisfactory resolution.

Once a solution has been found, the person that originally identified the problem puts the pin through the balloon to burst it.

There is a deep sense of satisfaction in watching the problems slowly disappearing with a loud bang as you progress!

For even more fun, fill the balloons with flour prior to the session.

This creates a cloudy explosion each time they’re burst!


This energiser is a fun way of addressing problems and issues and letting go of them. The energiser is particularly useful during team building training courses.
