THREE BIG TOES
(TOPIC: INTRODUCTIONS / ICEBREAKERS)
A FUN GAME to break the ice.
LET EVERYONE WALK LEISURELY AROUND THE ROOM.
WHEN YOU SHOUT ’3 BIG TOES’ THE STUDENTS MUST FORM LITTLE GROUPS, EACH GROUP CONSISTING OF 3 TOUCHING BIG TOES.
USE YOUR IMAGINATION as students follow your call – EG. 2 EARLOBES, 9 FINGERS, 4 ELBOWS, 5 RIGHT KNEES. REPEAT TILL EVERYONE IS GIGGLING.
THIS IS A GREAT GAME FOR NEW GROUPS, AS IT IS A GOOD ICE BREAKER. DID YOU FIND IT CHALLENGING TO BREAK AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE YOU ALREADY KNEW? ARE THERE SOME PEOPLE IN THE ROOM WHO DON’T KNOW ANYONE ALREADY? HOW BRAVE HAVE THEY BEEN TO KEEP PUTTING THEMSELVES OUT THERE? HOW HARD WOULD IT BE TO BREAK INTO NEW FRIENDSHIP GROUPS? HOW CAN WE SUPPORT EACH OTHER AS WE SETTLE IN TO THIS NEW CLASS / NEW SCHOOL, ETC?
