Mingle Mingle Mingle
Players need to continually repeat an answer to a question about themselves and find other people who are answering the same thing. It's positive is how chaotic it can get! It's negative is how chaotic it can get!
This is a good youth group game to get kids mingling together and to help kids to get to know one another better. It might provide good conversation starters for kids later on.
Get the whole group together. The leader running the game calls out a category question (for example - what is your favourite colour?). Everyone in the group would then have to start calling out their favourite colour to each other and find the others in the group who have the same favourite colour as them.
When a player finds another player who has the same answer as them they then join together (by linking arms) and continue to go round the group looking for more people with the same answer. After a minute or so (completely up to the leader running the game) the leader can call "STOP". Each group needs to call out their answer. If there are two people/groups who have the same answer but are not linked together then they are eliminated from the next round. Or alternatively, to keep everyone involved, you can give each kid five wrapped lollies or popsticks to start with and if they lose one each time this happens.
Be creative with the questions you ask:
- Favourite pizza topping
- Favourite ice cream flavour
- Favourite TV show
- Favourite band
- get to know
