Icebreaker Birthday Games
Icebreaker birthday games are a great way to start your child’s birthday party and let the guests meet and make new friends. Here are a few ideas that can be modified to fit the theme of your birthday party.
Ideas for Icebreaker Birthday Games:
Cartoon Couples – Write the names of each cartoon character and their match on pieces of paper (for example: Sponge Bob and Patrick, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Scooby Do and Shaggy, etc.) Place the cartoon names in a bowl and have each birthday party guest choose a paper from the bowl as they arrive. Ask each guest to find the other half of the cartoon couple. This icebreaker game can be modified to many different matching themes.
Icebreaker Ball Game – Buy a large inflatable beach ball and in permanent marker write icebreaker questions all over it. Sample questions can be something like: If you were an animal what would you be, what is the scariest movie you ever saw, what is your favorite food, what is your favorite tv show, what three words best describe you, if you were invisible what would you do, etc. Have birthday guests gather in a circle and have a guest throw the icebreaker ball to another party guest. The person who catches the ball must answer the question closest to where their right thumb is touching.
Line up Icebreaker Game – Give each party guest a number and tell them not to tell the others what it is. The object of the game is to have them line up in order without talking or using their fingers.
M&M Icebreaker Game – For each color M&M assign a certain question or category in which each guest must share something about themselves. Skittles or other multicolored candies may be used.
