A group of objects that progressively gets smaller. For example, begin with the beach ball, to a floor spot, small fuzzy object, dollar bill, quarter, and finally, a dime.


  1. Put the object in the center of the room.
  2. Ask the participants to each touch the object without touching any other person in the activity.
  3. Start with the large object, progressively getting smaller.
  4. Groups usually achieve far more than they initially think possible in this activity, which is nice for building confidence in their abilities. We also use this activity to lead into discussions about personal space and boundaries.
