Snowball Fight

Action games, Relaxing games, Icebreaker games, Small group games

This is a great fun get to know you game. It works well as an ice breaker game and it really quick to play. Also works for both big groups and small groups.

Hand out a piece of paper and a pen to each person playing. They then need to write down three facts about themselves - they can be simple and straightforward, or more obscure. Once they have finished, get them to scrunch up the piece of paper into a "snowball".

The next stage of the game is the snowball fight. Kids can throw the paper balls at each other from across the room. This can go on for as long or as short as you'd like.

Once you're ready, call out "stop" and get each kid to pick up the nearest piece of paper to them. They then need to un-scrunch it and read the three interesting facts then go around the room trying to find the person the facts match up to. It can be done as a race (ie. first person to find their person wins) or just as a general mixer. An optional extra could be to ask the kids what the most interesting facts were.

I played this game on my first day of school in fifth grade.
We changed one thing though. Instead of listing down THREE facts, we listed down ONE fact. So the game would go faster.
But, I obviously LOVE this game. It's simple, and doesn't hurt much.
