Using treats,  especially chocolate, along with easy questions is a great way for any group of people to get to know one another!  This game can be used at school, work, at parties, at FHE, Young Women/Men activities, etc.

  8. Head's up! Obama has put a kibosh to any candy in the classroom! Snacks have strict guidelines to be followed and Distircts could be fined for being out of compliance. I heard the first offense could be $7000.00. Food in cafeteria must also follow specifics as to content, fat grams etc.

  16. Great idea with the M & M's EXCEPT for the kids with a peanut allergy--they are in the ingredient list.
    Maybe Skittles instead? Safe for everyone!!:)

  17. Lynn, I too have a student with a peanut allergy and am going to do the activity with skittles. I teach 3rd grade so will modify the questions. Great idea for all ages.
