Ice Breakers

Make a Castle

By using marshmallows and spaghetti and attaching them together you will make your very own castle. The castle with the tallest height wins. Measure from the bottom marshmallow to the top marshmallows.

Mystery Counting

Fill a jar with candy. Guests write on a small piece of paper how many pieces of candy they think are in the jar. The one that guesses closest to the actual number wins the candy.

Mystery Counting Variation

Instead of candy in a jar, guess how many seeds are in an orange. Guess the length of a ball of butchers twine. Guess the weight of a head of cabbage.

Mystery Touch

Place various items in several containers such as paper bags or cardboard boxes and let guests feel inside each container and guess the contents. Look for items that vary in texture and contain an element of surprise. Try exotic fruits, brown sugar, crackers, dry beans, salad mix, salad dressing, a bottle of hot sauce – whatever you can think of.

Two Truths and a False Statement

Everyone writes three things about themselves on a piece of paper – two true statements and one false statement. Each person then reads their own statements and everyone else tries to guess which one is false.

Two Truths and a False Statement Variation

For this variation, gather everyone’s statements, which were written without the guests names. Then read one person’s written statement at a time–ask everyone to first guess who wrote the statements and then guessing which statement is false.

M&Ms Talk

Without stating why, invite guests to grab a small handful of M&Ms but not eat them yet. For every M&M, each person must say one thing about themselves.

Balloon Bounce

How many times in a row can you bounce a balloon off your head? Stand in a circle and have one person go at a time or have everyone in the circle take turns bouncing the balloon without letting it touch the ground. This ice breaker is great for young kids and the young at heart.
