Everyone writes his/her first (maybe also second) name vertically or horizontally on a sheet of paper. Characteristics which describe one (e.g. creative, brave) or hobbies shall now complete the name in a crossword puzzle mode. The letters in the name do not have to be the first letters of the other words, but can also be somewhere in the middle, e.g. the name Leo could have the following labels: Lively, studEnt, spOrts. When everyone has finished his/her personal name-crossword, all are pinned on a board or put on the wall and shared.
