When I was in my twenties I had several jobs working with youth groups: camp counsellor in the USA; youth worker in London and Outdoor Activities Instructor in Wales. In all these jobs I used ice breaker games extensively, because:
- they were so fantastic at getting the group to gel and me to gel with them
- they are fun, and quickly get people laughing and smiling
- they really set the day up well and you can then ease your young people into the rest of the day's session
I had hundreds of icebreaker games and I could literally pull them out of a hat at a moment's notice.Over the years, neglectfully, I had forgotton many of these games until now . With a lot of persuasion from folk who know me, I've compiled as many as I could remember into my ice breaker games book for youth, but sadly there are a few that, annoyingly, I can't quite remember.
Can you help me?
Does anyone remember an icebreaker game called "Jenny Bloggs" or "Owl and the Pussy Cat?" If you do let me have the details and I'll send you some great ice breaker games that you can use for your youth groups. Or if you have any other great games that I can add to my collection I'll do the same. Please leave me as much detail as possible in my comments box - thanks
