Fortune telling suggestion
Cut up some paper into strips.
Write some possible outcomes/suggestions on them ('Try again in six months', 'Eat goat', 'Work hard and reap the rewards' Christmas cracker and fortune cookie mottoes, the promises from your email account spam folder, etc).
Fold up and put into a box, shake it up, and put next to another box.
Put a coin in the second box take out a bit of paper and read. Continue as required and add or replace bits of paper with text.
When bored, empty out second box. Your fortunes have improved! Go enjoy.
Variant no 2 - get your friends to do the same and swap boxes around
