Plus it can help get some of the wiggles out, too! Preschool Icebreaker Game: Have a Ball Learning Names Best for: ages 3 to 5 Tools: a beach ball Form a circle and pass around the beach ball. When kids have the ball, they say their name before passing it to the person next to them. Go around the circle twice so kids can hear others’ names. Then challenge kids to throw the ball to someone not sitting next to them and say that child’s name. Preschoolers will love this icebreaker game because they get to play with a ball as they learn others’ names. Note: If you have a very large class, break your preschoolers into two or more smaller groups to help them learn names better.
