Colorful Candy Confessions: an icebreaker to get to know your team members

To start a group activity and get the group in the right mindset, an icebreaker is the ideal solution.
With "Colorful Candy Confessions", team members take turns to tell a juicy anecdote that happened to them, but not just any anecdote... That's precisely the surprise hidden inside the colorful candy. This icebreaker is an opportunity for the group to discover a small part of everyone's personality, whether the team members know one another or not.

Invite the team to Board Hybrid

This digital whiteboard with unlimited space places visual communication and interactivity at the center of the team. The team members don’t need to be all in the same room to use it. Live, the built-in videoconferencing tool, eliminates any space-related constraints: everyone can interact directly from their own screens.
This setting is ideal for this icebreaker, which begins with introductions.Members post their picture and enter their first name in the dedicated box.

Get team members talking to each other in 10 minutes flat

Find out more about each individual group member! Everyone picks a colored candy from the candy jar, and places it next to their picture, in the dedicated area.
Like fortune cookies, which contain a small piece of paper with a fortune or a saying written on it, each colorful candy conceals a different message. On theBoard Hybrid, this effect can be achieved by superimposing various elements:a useful tip for other activities! For example, so as not to spill the beans during a presentation and keep group members on their toes.
 
For this icebreaker, the messages are unveiled in 3 clicks:
-   One click to pick a candy
-   A second click to ungroup the selection
-   A third click to reveal the surprise message by moving the candy.
 
Start a countdown using the Board Hybrid’s Timer, to control everyone’s speech time. In turns, everyone tells the other team members an anecdote based on the theme inside their colorful candy. It might be something that happened the day before, something they couldn’t live without, a dream to fulfill, a dream fulfilled, their favorite food, the last stupid thing they did, or a childhood memory.
These anecdotes are a good opportunity for group members to get to know one another better. The messages inside the candies can be customized according to need. That way, the activity can be repeated several times with the same team.  

For team members who find virtual candy a bit frustrating, why not add a fun twist to the icebreaker and open a real packet of candy to share amongst the group if they are all in the same room?
 
Ready, steady, go! Those with a sweet tooth are getting impatient...
