This energiser is purely about the laughs. It is useful for sessions where participants have been concentrating and staying focussed for some time and need some light relief. The energiser is also good for encouraging teams to relax and have a little fun.

A set of instructions for the energiser, ‘Smile Please’ can be downloaded for free from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.
This energiser is based on a children’s game that I have seen being played.
The idea is to ask people to pair up and stand with their backs towards each other. On the count of three they must turn and face each other and keep a straight face. The first person to smile or laugh is ‘out’.
Once participants have done this, you should ask them to switch pairs and continue the energiser. You usually end up with one pairing that is particularly good and in this case you should encourage everyone in the room to try and make them laugh.
This energiser is purely about the fun and laughter.
