<b>Steps</b><br>
1. Have the animals in a bag so that the participants can not see them.<br>
2. <i>We are going to end the program now and would like to do that by giving each of your a gift. These gifts are animals. These are special animals because you don't select them they select you. So I would like you to put your hand into the bag and take the animal that selects you.<br>

4. When each person has selected their animal, ask each person to show their animal and say why they think the animal selected them.<br>
