Ice breakers for Youth Group



Does anyone have ideas for ice breakers? We will have our first meeting soon, and I want to build a bond between the kids. Some of them have never met before, and some are great friends.

Thanks for your help,


Have you ever handed out the “people bingo” cards. You make up a bunch of sheets and in the squares, there are phrases like:

“has been to California”
“has more than 2 siblings”
“has not seen the new Batman movie”

etc…etc… and you fill up the sheet with those and make copies and pass them out and they have to find other people in the room who qualify for any clue. Then they write that person’s name in the box. They aren’t allowed to use the same person’s name twice. You can either play until someone gets a bingo, or you can have them play until they fill up the sheet if there are 25 or more people there. You could also make a 3x3 or 4x4 grid if there will be less people.


Thank you!

Any others?
