Everyone has a card. Set a timer to 120 seconds (less if the group is smaller than 20). Make sure every person finds the icon on his or her card. Give the following instructions: “Each of your icons has a common bond with another person’s icon in this room. You have 2 minutes to find one partner. When you find your one partner, step to the outside of the area and wait until we are all matched up.” You can repeat the statement, but try not to give any other instructions. Let them find their partners and try to be strict on the time. In this activity ANY and EVERY bond that they find is valid. Let them make the connections. Go around the room and let everyone show and explain their connections.

For Example:

All answers are valid and even more are possible!
