Here are a few examples of exercises we are using already:
- Couples sit so that they are facing opposite directions. One partner is facing a simple drawing of geometric shapes, and describes it while the other uses paper & pencil to draw what is described. The describer can't see what the draw-er is drawing, and the draw-er can't turn and look at the shapes being described. (This is a communication exercise.)
- The husband ties one end of a 2- to 3-ft. length of string onto each wrist. The wife ties a string around one hand only, then takes her string and drops the loose end between the husband's body and his string. She then attaches the other end of her string around her other wrist. Once connected, they must devise a plan to separate themselves from each other without breaking or cutting the string or taking it off their wrists. (This is an exercise in working together to solve a problem.)
- Use craft materials to make a special gift for your spouse that symbolizes your relationship or your commitment to each other.
Please share some other fun exercises (that take 10-15 minutes) that you've heard about or done. Thanks!
