Animal Ice Breaker

Write down the names of various animals that make a distinct noise on different slips of paper.  Give the slips out to your group and tell them that they have to find other people in that group that have the same animal without talking.  

Roll the Dice (In circle groups)

Human Bingo

Getting to Know you Bracelet

Each girl will get a pipecleaner with beads on it. You will approach your new friend and say “Hello… my name is ___”. Once introduced, you should swap beads. Take your giveaway bead from the top of the pipecleaner, and put your new bead (from your new friend) on the bottom of the pipecleaner. Eventually you’ll have a rainbow mix of beads from all of your friends.

Check out more about making these friendship bracelets over at BrowniesMeet (see link above).

Jigsaw Puzzle Game

Give a jigsaw puzzle piece to each person.  Ask them to walk around the room and find other people in the group with pieces of the jigsaw that go with theirs.  Eventually group members join up and match up their pieces to make the picture, and they become a team for the next activity or challenge.
