Preteen Game: Easter Ice Breaker

Since church attendance is higher than normal on Easter Sunday, help children get acquainted with one another by playing this Easter Ice Breaker.


You’ll need:

  • small sticky notes,
  • pencils,
  • plastic eggs,
  • a basket, and
  • some music.

Preteen Game: Easter Ice Breaker

Give each child a sticky note, a pencil, and an egg. Have children each write something on the note about what they’re wearing, such as a blue watch or red earrings. Then have children put their notes in their eggs, close them, and place them in a basket.

Mix up the eggs, play some music, and have children sit in a circle. Pass the basket around. When the music stops, have the child who’s holding the basket pull out an egg. Have him or her open it and guess who wrote the note. If the child guesses correctly, have the note-writer stand-up and share his or her name and a fun personal fact. If the guess is incorrect, the egg goes back in the basket and play continues. Continue until everyone has a turn.
