A few ideas to entertain the troupes during Christmas Holidays or Christmas Day.
This quick icebreaker works to form pairs or teams. Distribute common song titles to each participant and make sure they do not reveal it to others. Have two or more duplicates depending on whether you are pairing or creating teams. Participants hum their song and find others humming the same song. At least two people should have each song title
End the Sentence
Write the start of a question on the board (i.e. My Favorite job was …, My Hobby is…) and go around the room with each person finishing the sentence. When the group is finished, post another question and start again.
Word and Songs
Use this icebreaker to energize participants. Divide the group into at least two teams. The facilitator suggests a word (like dance, sun, happy, love). Each group alternates turns singing a song that contains that word. The game continues until a team cannot think of any more songs. Songs cannot be repeated.
The Four Cs
Ask each person to name a cartoon character, a color, a car, and a cuisine that best describes his or her personality and explain why.
Give each person a piece of paper with instructions to write words or draw pictures
that describe themselves without talking. Then they are to pin their paper on their chest,
walk around, and look at each other. Pictures are collected and shuffled and participants
try to identify to whom each picture belongs.
Who Is It?
People write down something about themselves they think no one knows. The leader
reads the slips of paper and others guess whom the person is. It is amazing to see the
things some people reveal about themselves.
Two Truths and a Lie
Have participants say three things about themselves. Two should be true and one
should be a lie. Have participants guess which response was a lie and give their reasoning.
