If you have ever been to a party where you barely knew somebody, you must have observed that it can make a person feel very awkward. Leave alone the shy ones, it can happen to even the most extroverts amongst us.
This is where ice breaker activities and games come handy. They help in bringing the people closer, initiating conversations among them. Here are some interesting games for people of all age groups.
Games for Kids
When the kids try to adjust in that small area, they develop physical proximity, which helps in bringing them together. Not to mention how much fun it can be for them. Keep on reducing the area of the circle by drawing smaller circles. The kids will enjoy themselves immensely trying to accommodate in the ever decreasing area.
Ice Breakers for Teenagers
If it's a small group, you can divide the teens into two teams and have them compete against each other. You can keep contests as making balls with newspapers(the team which makes the maximum is the winner) or filling a bucket with water using only hands to carry and pour water in it (the team which is able to fill the maximum amount of water is the winner).
Activities for Adults
These are some fun ice breaker activities which are sure to make the participants mingle, serving as great conversation starters. Include a few of these at a party or an office meeting, or even a summer camp, and see the participants experience non-stop fun and mixing.
