About: Training Wheels - Chiji Cards
Chiji (Chee-jee) is a Chinese word meaning important moment or significant opportunity. Whether this moment leads to a positive or negative path depends upon the actions of the individual. This deck of cards consists of 52 different pictures. Participants are asked to choose different cards as they relate to experiences they have had or can relate to. There are many uses for these cards. Each deck comes with some activity directions.Some Activity Ideas:
- As an introductory activity, participants can choose the card that best represents a strength they bring to the group, or a goal they have for the day, course or program.
- As a pre-brief in the early parts of a program spread the cards out before the group and have them pick a card that best represents where they are at that moment. At the very beginning of the day/program, spread the cards out before the group and have them pick a card that best represents where they are at that moment. Ask them how they are feeling and to pick a card that matches where they are mentally coming into the day. Go around the group and ask each participant to share why they picked the card they did and why that card represents them or where they are. If you start the day with this activity, it is good to end the day with this same activity.
- Spread the cards out before the group and have them pick a card that best represents an experience or a feeling that they had during the activity or at the end of the day. You can do this at the end of the day or after an activity. Go around the group and ask each participant to share why they picked the card they did and why that card represents them or an experience they have had. Participants can each pick their own card, then draw it or write about in their journal.
