Sometimes we need a little help to get a group excited about awards or ceremony. It can be hard to be creative time after time, and that is how the CHEER BOX came to be.
A list of various applause can be typed up and cut apart to be placed inside a container. You can decorate it as little or as much as you wish. Another option is to use an empty box of Cheer. Once the slips are all in the container, take it to your next meeting and have 1 person draw a slip. For the rest of the time everyone must applaud the way requested on the slip.
ONE HAND – Leader: “What is the sound of one hand clapping?” Everyone claps one hand.
Depending on the age of your group, some cheers on the list may be a bit too much. You also may want to consider using several cheers if you know the meeting is going to be awhile. The majority of the applause that I included I have gathered over the last several years from various sources, but some are the ones my own girls have come up with. If you know a good one that is not included, please let me know.
