ID Cards

Arrange a deck of playing cards with the four aces on top, followed by the four 2's, then the four 3's, and so on. At the start of the workshop, count the number of participants and remove that many cards from the top of the deck. Shuffle this packet and give a card to each participant. (If late-comers straggle in, give each of them a card from the top of the left-over cards in the deck.)

Ask the participants to show their cards to each other and explain that these cards are their ID cards.

Playing cards make a versatile randomizing device.
