How To Play Speed Dating With a Twist
Set up the chairs in two circles, a small circle and a larger circle outside of that. Make sure that the chairs are facing each other and there are an equal amount of chairs in the inside circle as well as the outside circle.
The format or idea of how the game is played is like speed dating. Every kid will sit across from another kid, can be same or opposite sex, and will have a task to complete in 30 seconds before they rotate to the next person.
Here is a list of questions we asked kids to complete with each other:
- What's your most embarrassing moment?
- What's your favourite food?
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
- Who's your favourite celebrity?
- Who do you look up to the most?
- What's your favourite childhood memory?
Some of these topics may need a little longer than 30 seconds, others may need less. We used a cymbal as our rotation gong. This game is a great introduction to the topic of love or dating that also acts as a way for kids to get to know each other and break out of their comfort zone a little.
