Children’s Icebreaker Game: Giants And Grasshoppers

Use this icebreaker game to get kids interacting in a new group, to grow fellowship in an existing group, or as a warm-up before a great lesson.


Icebreaker Game: Giants and Grasshoppers

Time: 10 minutes

How to Play

Form two groups, the “grasshoppers” and the “giants.” The grasshoppers must squat low and hop around the room. Their job is to tag the giants. The giants must walk around the room taking giant steps.

When a grasshopper tags a giant, the grasshopper turns into a giant, and the giant turns into a grasshopper.

Have the children play the icebreaker game for several minutes. If your grasshoppers get tired of hopping, stop the game and have the grasshoppers and giants trade places.
