So far through this blog we regularly cover devotional topics, encouragement, & youth ministry info but from time to time you just have to have a little fun. Working with young people always brought about one of my favorite activities: the ice breaker games. I understand these typically make those of us who are introverts cringe, however I maintain that these specific activities go a long way in breaking the social barrier and the awkward cheesy factor most groups start out with. Also, here’s where we can go over the top as youth directors being goofy, all in the name of making our kids feel more comfortable in their surroundings. This may not be your style but I have found that kids feel more at ease as long as their is someone willing to look more goofy than them…so I’m more than willing to pick up that gauntlet. Here are a few I’ve used over the years that I liked and you may find effective In your ministry context. Please feel free to edit, change and adapt as you see fit (i.e. paper balls instead of planes) so that it is most effective for you. Do you have a good one you’d like to share?
