Youth Group Games has a huge range of icebreaker games for youth ministry and groups. "Icebreakers" (or ice breakers) are games or activities that break the ice and help people get to know each other at group functions, parties and events.
Ice breaker games are great for small groups or large groups where there are many people who don't know each other.
Having some relaxed, fun icebreaker games, icebreaker activities or warmup games at the beginning of a group meeting can be a fantastic way to the ease the group in the becoming more relaxed around each other.
