Signal that "play" is an essential part of "learn"
A Bundle of Koosh in your training indicates that play is welcome AND essential to productive learning. Trainers love to use Koosh for icebreakers and reinforcement games. Koosh have about as many uses as they have rubbery strands!
- Ensure that one person speaks at the time (the one holding the Koosh)
- Learn about colleagues by tossing the Koosh sharing a little known fact
- Fiddle with it for better listening

I use Koosh balls in a large group activity that includes a lot of tossing and catching. Also use them as a sort of "talking stick" in review sessions. (Whoever is holding the ball has to try to answer a review question, but if they don't know the answer they can toss to another person with hand raised to offer an answer.)
Fiddlers work to relieve stress and thus enhance retention of classroom material.
I have used Koosh in ice breakers, games, energizers and simply as haptic tools on the tables. This was a particularly great purchase because I was able to identify the colors I wanted, which is frequently not possible. I was given terrific customer service and really appreciate that!
