Can't Have One Without the Other...

This ice breaker is a lot of fun.. it is great for all ages!!!

First you get index cards and you write famous ppl's name, or things that go together on them, for ex: Will Smith and the other index card would say Jada Smith. or Peanut butter on the first and Jelly on the other.

On the back of the card where the lines are shown, you would put three things or four things according to attention span like:

  • age,
  • grade,
  • fav color
  • etc.

Then each person draws a card.

Once everyone has a card, they have 10 minutes to find their match and ask each other those questions on the back. After the 10 minutes is up, they introduce their partner.

Example: This is my partner Will Smith.(everyone usually laughs at the funny partners) then they introduce the person they have met by reading what has been written on the card.. Enjoy!!!!!!

Babe Johnson. This game seems like fun. The characters can be funny and so the hints on the cards. It's like a mind using game which helps you to ponder as well as fun. You know writing your essays are having games as a big upcoming topic of discussion. In which all indoor and outdoor games are discussed and share. It's fun discussing them.
