Fun Conference Ice Breaker for Large Groups
I came across this conference ice breaker yesterday quite by accident. It's a bit slow in getting going but stick with it and the group looks they are having a lot of fun!
Just come back from my action learning set and we had another great ice breaker game to start us off on our meeting. You will need a rope sling or loop, big enough to slip over the heads and bodies of your colleagues.
- Ask everyone to form a circle and hold hands.
- Place the loop between 2 people (need to break hands for a moment) and then instruct the participants to pass the loop all the way around the group without letting it fall to the floor and without breaking hands or stepping out of the loop
- Participants will need to wriggle away and help each other get the loop around the circle. It's good fun and breaks the ice! Once they have done it once you can time it and see how fast they can do it.
Start off your meeting or training session with a fun, experiential team activity and your team will be firing on all cylinders right from the word "go"! Dynamic and participative, we strongly believe in the experiential element of getting teams to have a go together at something fun together. They can be used for:
- Breaking the ice at the start of a session
- Breaking down barriers between individuals
- Creative problem-solving
- Illustrating a training point
- Creating team dynamics
- Providing an opportunity to review the way teams work
- To give feedback on team roles
- Low-cost exercises for when budgets are tight
- Ice breakers for conferences and both small and large events
- Kids love them too!
However you use these fun team activities you will find that they can have a real impact on your event. We have used them on all our team building events for over 20 years. In tough times they are also extrememly economical; you can run these team activites yourself without having to employ expensive outsiders!
