Balloon Popping Game
by Mohamed Saber
Group Size: Medium (5-20)
Group Abilities: Physical Activity
Icebreaker Purpose: Energizer
Materials: 1 blown up balloon and 60cm of string per person
Time: 5 minutes
This unfortunately requires quite a bit of preparation, but it is worth it for the amusement of watching people play the ice breaker.
Each person has a balloon on a string tied to their ankle; the string needs to be fairly long, at least a couple of feet (60cm).
The object of the game is for each person to try and pop everyone else's balloon by stepping or sitting on them, while simultaneously keeping their own balloon safe.
This is one of the great ice breakers for big groups because the action is frenetic and often you will end up with very unlikely winners. Be careful where you play it though - if you're not on the ground floor of the building, the people beneath you aren't likely to enjoy ice breakers like this too much!
