This is a series of ice breakers, energizers, team buliding games and activities that are particularly useful for younger participants.

Icebreaker, Energiser: My Favourite Food

Age group: 6-10 yrs

This is a fun exercise to be used as an icebreaker or energiser with kids.

Ask kids to write down their most favourite food on a piece of paper secretly, and then fold it and put it in a container or a bowl. Each kid has to pick up one of the folded sheets, read the name of the food written on it aloud and guess whose favourite food it is. If guessed correctly, that paper is removed from the container but if not it goes back into the bowl or container. Repeat until all are found.

Team Building, Creativity Exercise: Card Blocks

Age group: 8-12 yrs

This activity encourages team work within the group and promotes creative thinking in the process.

Split the group into teams of three or four kids. Give each team a deck of cards. Each team has ten minutes to design and construct a tower of cards. The team with the highest tower wins the game.

Creativity, Teamwork Exercise: Printer

Age group: 7-10 yrs

This is a fun and engaging exercise which uses kid’s imagination and innovative skills.

Split the group into subgroups of three or four kids. Provide each team with a shoe box, sticky tape, a scissor, a marker pen and a few A4 sheets. Each team has twenty minutes to design a paper printer out of the materials provided. The best design gets a suitable prize.

Icebreaker: Special T-Shirt

Age group: 6-10 yrs

This activity is great as an icebreaker especially for a group of kids who don’t know each other as much. It is a nice introduction for each person and also makes remembering names easier for everyone.

Ask each participant to bring his or her favourite T-shirt to the group. Each kid then has to tell the group about his or her T-shirt, where it is from, how long they had it, what is special about it and so on.

Communication, Teamwork Exercise:

Age group: 7-10 yrs

This fun exercise helps kids to understand the importance of effective verbal communication and promotes teamwork.

Split the group into pairs. Scatter a number of objects (shoe boxes, glasses of water, flower pots...) over the floor. Set a starting and finishing point. One person in each pair is blindfolded. The other member of the team has to guide the blindfolded person thorugh the object without any physical contacts. The pair who reaches the finish line quickest and without touching any of the obstacles is the winner.

Great ideas! I can't wait to introduce them to my class, I think it's time to play another team building game other than 'it's a knockout' which although is a good game, I've been getting them to play it for months!
