Facilitator: “Now, I will say a tool and you will need to grab anything and use it as a prop that represent that tool. E.g., I say ‘sword’ and you grab the first thing you see and act as if it is a sword.”
Examples of tools:
- Boxing gloves
- Magic wand
- cape, etc.
Urge people to be in a rush and not to think about what they are taking. It doesn’t matter what they are holding but their attitude while holding it. Ultimate usage of a Props is not holding any prop and still creating a successful illusion you have one.
