INEXPENSIVE ENERGY BOOSTERS FOR YOUR NEXT TRAINING

When planning a training or morale booster the right items are critical to enhance the content delivered.  This month, Stephanie from Principal Principles and I presented at TEPSA's Summer Conference.  Our presentation was over the release of our new book Morale Magic, 500+ pages of activities, morale boosters, instructional reflections, and social gatherings.  This presentation was upbeat, fun, and competitive (yes competitive).  The 1000+ audience was split into two teams to compete with activities presented throughout the hour.  A key component when planning this presentation was audience interaction.  Without the interaction, the activities would not be the same.  The same concept goes with staff on a campus or in a training.  Audience/staff interaction is the key to a successful training.  

To top your training off, do not forget the music! To find a great playlist that was used during our presentation CLICK HERE. 






POMPOMS
After much deliberation between items to use during this presentation, we decided on pompoms and siren whistles as our two big items to distribute to the audience.  These two items are easy to tote, not bulky for the audience to use, and fun to use.  Not only do multi color pompoms look great when waved in the air, they are fairly inexpensive to purchase and can be re-used on a campus if desired as well.  For our presentation we chose white, black and gold pompoms to match our book theme.  School colors can be easily used for back to school trainings in August. 
(*Note* Gold, Silver or any metallic colors are typically priced differently due to the type of material)

SIREN WHISTLES

After searching the web and not finding a bulk inexpensive kazoo I stumbled upon bulk colorful siren whistles.  These were great because they are small and loud! These whistles can be purchased from Amazon and at a great price (.33 cents each)!  The siren whistles will be packaged 1 dozen to a pack so to prepare for our presentation I unpackaged all individual sacks and put into one large bag for easy distribution. There are also Lip Shaped Siren Whistles that I have used at previous events are are fun and generate the same LOUD sound.
