Wind It Up

A relaxed icebreaker non-contact game for small groups

How To Play Wind It Up

Materials Needed

string - lots of it

This activity needs a little bit of preparation work. Purchase a big roll of yarn or string. You can buy any colour, or multiple colours if you wish. Take a pair of scissors and cut strings of various different lengths — as short as 12 inches, and as long as 30 or more inches.
When you are finished cutting the string, bunch all the pieces up into one big clump of string.

To play, ask the first volunteer to choose any piece of string. Have the person pull on it and separate it from the other pieces of string. Ask them to introduce themselves as they slowly wind the piece of string around their index finger. The funny part of this icebreaker game is that some of the strings are extremely long, so sometimes a person must keep talking for a very long time! This is a good way to get everyone to start talking. People might find out something interesting or new about each other!
