This is a great mixer/ice breaker activity that you can do with your youth.
Supplies: Name Tags and Markers
How to play:
Have everyone write their name on the name tag (legibly) and then collect all of the name tags. Then you are going to tell them that they are going to get a name stuck on their forehead and instruct everyone not to give it away because the purpose is to figure who is stuck to their forehead.
So carefully make sure that each student gets a name tag stuck on their forehead (remember don’t let them see who it is) then have them pair up and play rock, paper, scissors (or whatever variation of that) and the winner then gets to ask just one question to their partner to help them discover who they may have on their forehead.
Play for a few rounds of this then have them circle up and go around and have each person say who they think is on their forehead. If they are not sure – have them ask one question at a time to the group until they discover who it is.
Sample Questions that may be asked:
“Is it a girl?”
“Are they tall?”
“Are they blonde?”
“Are they wear glasses?”
Alternative: Pre-make genres or different races like the office pic and have them ask questions to try and figure it out.
Tips: If you have a large group – break it into smaller groups for when they go around and say who they are. Also make sure the other students don’t give it away when the person asks questions about who is on their forehead (by looking at who it actually is ect…). Try to keep answers to only Yes or No – do not have descriptive answers or it becomes easy to find out. Keep your questions positive about the person you are asking about.
