If you’re hosting a church Zoom meeting, you can use one of these icebreakers to help your audience relax and connect with each other. They’re fun and easy to play, and they’ll be sure to get everyone talking!
This game involves writing three facts about yourself that you don’t know and then voting on which one is most interesting. It’s a great way to learn more about people in your group and it can also lead to deeper conversations.
|Have you tried Meetn, the new online meeting platform?
It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.
1. M&M’s Challenge
This icebreaker is great for helping participants get to know each other. It’s a simple game that gets people talking and laughing.
If you’re looking for a fun and engaging way to break the ice at your church Zoom meetings, try M&M’s Challenge. Each colored M&M relates to a different subject that will spark conversations with the group.
To play the game, have each participant pick a color and pass it around to everyone in the group. Once everyone has a bag of M&Ms, have them share something for each M&M.
2. Human Knot
One of the most popular team building games, Human Knot is a fun and challenging game that will get everyone laughing. In this game, players stand in a circle and grab random teammates’ hands.
They then try to untie themselves into a continuous circle without letting go of any of their hands. This is a great way to build teamwork skills and encourage effective communication.
This is a very close contact game that might not be the best fit for some people, so it’s important to consider your group’s level of comfort before playing. It can also be tricky to keep your balance while untangling, so do take care not to run into each other!
3. The Highs & Lows of Life
The highs and lows of life are inevitable and make up a large part of your experience as a human being. The bad times can be painful, but they also help shape you and teach you lessons that you will need to face again in the future.
When we’re going through a tough time, it can be easy to fall into the trap of avoiding what we are feeling or rationalizing that what we are feeling is not real. That can be detrimental to our health, our emotional well-being and our ability to engage in vital actions or activities.
Rather than avoiding or distracting ourselves, we must learn to embrace the full spectrum of human emotions and be comfortable with them as they come and go. This can lead to more uplifting times and a better chance at surviving difficult situations in the future.
4. What’s in Your Purse or Wallet?
What’s in your purse or wallet is an important question to ask yourself. It can help you make a better life plan and avoid the stress of last-minute decision making. For example, you might want to invest in a portable phone charger or slip your keys into a secure side pocket. You could also carry around a small pack of tissues in case of an unexpected cold. Using a pocket mirror is another no brainer, if you don’t mind a little scrubbing.
A fun icebreaker to play at your next Relief Society meeting is the What’s in Your Purse or Wallet Scavenger Hunt. This printable game consists of a few cleverly designed cards. This game is suitable for adults of any age and will have your group in a good mood before you know it!
5. Who Do You Admire?
When it comes to icebreakers for church Zoom meetings, there are tons of options. Some are easy, while others require some preparation or planning.
In this one, you ask group members to name three people past or present that they admire. You can ask this question at the beginning of a meeting or use it as a follow-up activity after you’ve done other icebreakers.
This icebreaker will definitely bring out some great discussion. It’s also a good way to get to know the people in your group.
