• To encourage the group to reflect on an individual level.
  • To enable different people to contribute to the same reflection.


  • Papers
  • Pencils/pens/markers

Basic Structure:

  • Ask participants to write a key reflection (or the answer to a reflective question) on a sheet of paper.
  • When done, the papers are to be crumbled up into a ball & tossed to the other side of the room.
  • Once participants catch a “snowball”, they read it and add something new to the reflection.
  • The paper is to be crumbled up again and the process repeated.


  • Key reflections can be drawn instead of written down, and after every toss, someone adds on the drawing they receive.
