The Draw Your Mood Activity

Draw your mood is is a great icebreaker activity and help people on your team express their feelings and emotions. Thus, it is an ideal exercise to start a meeting by asking your group how they are or how their weekend went.

Instead of asking verbally, ask your team to draw how they are. Or, ask them to draw a simple picture of their weekend plans.

It’s a cool exercise that will get people’s creative juices flowing and energize them for the upcoming meeting.

If you’re running an online/hybrid meeting, use a virtual whiteboard, such as Miro, or an integrated whiteboard within the video conferencing platform that you use (such as Zoom Whiteboard).

Distribute sticky note notes and a sharpie for each participant. Write the following sentence on the canvas: “How do you feel?”

Ask participants: “Please draw something that better expresses how you feel right now, in the context of this meeting” (consider saying vehicle, animal, object, super-hero or view instead of “something”).

Ask participants to place their sticky note with the drawing on the common canvas, and, if they want, to say something about their drawing.

  1. This icebreaker is so ridiculous, what about people that do not want to discuss personal matters at work? I have had a rash of break-ins in my neighbourhood and the last thing I want to tell the people is I’m not going to be at home.
