A Fun Lesson Energiser – Follow Along Laughtercise Session

If your students were told to ‘move’, they’d probably move…right? If they were told to ‘freeze’, they’d probably freeze, yes?

Well, forget the normal for this activity! It’s time for your students to do something ⚡️different⚡️. What’s better for our wellbeing than having fun together??

Check out an NHS team having fun playing this game:


A Fun Lesson Energiser – Drawing Ahead!

This is a brilliant and bitesize activity you can do to support the wellbeing of your students. There’s nothing better for our wellbeing than having fun! It can take less than 5 minutes and will really challenge your students creative side:

You will need:

📍 1 paper plate or piece of card per student

📍 1 pen per student


📍 Step 1 – Instruct everyone to put their piece of card on their head 

📍 Step 2 – Instruct everyone to draw a picture on their piece of card. You can pick what picture they draw. Maybe you’re talking about the planet so get them to draw Earth. Or if it’s Easter, get them to draw an Easter egg

📍 Step 3 – Instruct everyone to write their name underneath their drawing

📍 Step 4 – Give them 1 minute and get them to draw!

📍 Step 5 – After 1 minute, ask everyone to remove the card and show to everyone around them 

Benefits to this game:

⚡️ Everyone’s drawing will be funny, so no one will feel awkward about their lack of artistic ability

⚡️ Everyone will have a great laugh about each other’s drawings

⚡️ It challenges brains in a unique way


A Fun Lesson Energiser – Switch Hands!

This will challenge students minds in a very unique way. How fast can they switch hands?? Follow along to this video or facilitate yourself:

You will need:

📍 Nothing! This game can be played anytime and anywhere!

📍 Get students to do a ‘thumb up’ with their right hand

📍 Get students to point their left index finger at their ‘thumb up’

📍 Switch hands! Do ‘thumb up’ on left hand and index finger pointing with right hand

Love Team Laughtercise


Whether you’re looking for a unique hen do idea for your hen crew or a corporate team building workshop for your team, a Laughtercise session is all about creating as many smiles and laughter in your group as humanely possible!

We’ve scoured the world for the best exercises, activities and games that bring out smiles and giggles.

We would love to tell you that we’ve invented loads of activities but we haven’t invented ANYTHING. We’ve taken the best that exists, combined it together and made it better…our very own original recipe.

Simple ideas, simple games, all facilitated expertly.

We deliver sessions in-person or online.

Is your room small? Is it large? Inside? Outside? We’ll be there! We will work around you.

For team building sessions, we can come to your office or away day location. For hen parties, we can come to your accommodation or a private room that you’ve booked.

📍 Our Corporate Team Building Workshops vary from 10-minute energising conferences sessions to full away day sessions of 4hs

📍 Our Corporate Wellbeing Workshops can vary in length from 1hr to 3hrs

📍 Our Online Team Building Workshops can vary in length from 30mins to 1.5hrs

📍 For online sessions, the attendee limit is 1000.

📍 For in-person sessions, the only limit is how much room you have (the more the merrier!)

Our prices vary depending on the number of attendees, how long the session is for and where the session is held.

We can guarantee you this though…in terms of bang for buck, you’ll get a sonic boom 💥

Let’s get some time to discuss, get in touch 😀

Our Corporate Team Building Workshops have been described as ‘the most fun I’ve ever had at work’ by Amazon employees and in a recent NHS study, 77% of NHS session attendees reported feeling less stressed after their Laughtercise session.

Hens love Laughtercise too 👇

“It was so good, everyone loved it. We all highly recommend, the Laughtercise Team are an absolute dream. It was INCREDIBLE”

But the only way to truly find out, is to dive in and get smiling! 😁

We will rock your world ⚡

Yes, loads!
