How To Play Mix & Meet

Get each person to grab some M&M's. Tell them not to eat them.

Assign a different meaning to each colour:

Blue = family
Green = school
Yellow = friends
Red = hobbies
Brown = music/movies

However many M&Ms they have in their hands, that is how many facts they have to tell. For example, if they have three blue, they would have to say three facts about their family.

This game can also be played with toilet paper. They rip off how much they would normally 'use', and then they have to say a fact about them per sheet of toilet paper they have.

Materials Needed

M&M chocolates

Hi There,
I dont know how to play games here! Thanks in advance for your advises

I play this game alot using the toilet paper.I find the young people have a great time and have many laughs especially the boys.When they realise what they have to do they always ask can they put some back.It really is a great way of getting them to open up about themselves.

Another way to play this is to use colored paper squares or poker chips. I have a lot of sick kids with specific food needs come through, so we have to steer clear of a lot of food-based stuff, and so I keep some red/yellow/blue paper squares on hand, as well as some red/white/blue poker chips (but the paper ones are easy to add to, and I sometimes don't have enough poker chips).

Great way to get everyone to share a little about themselves. Especially in a 'shy' group of kids

i wouldn't think of toilet paper to be a good idea because then they could just grab on square so they wouldn't have to talk

When you give out the toilet paper, you make them think that this is their ration for the night, in case they have to use the bathroom - that way, they will take more than one square. (You don't lie; you don't say anything at all, except for something like, "Please take as much toilet paper as you think you will need this evening" or something like that.)

We’re doing this Sunday with 25-30 middle schoolers and high schoolers. This is how I’ll do it:

Going to split the big group up into 4 by their birthdays. Group 1 is Jan-Mar bdays, Group 2 is Apr-Jun...and so on. Once divided, have them grab some M&Ms and give 6-8 minutes to go through the activity. Should work well
