In pairs (a trio will work fine too) have one person tell the other about a holiday memory. After a short while, clap your hands and shout ‘change’. Their partner will need to carry on the story even though it didn’t happen to them. Keep clapping and shouting ‘change’, speeding up the gap between changes. Both will need to adapt to the story as it is improvised, not correct one another on how it really happened.
