Adults intimidating children
They have their own lives and thankfully still include us in their lives. Should we share our experiences or let them make their own mistakes?
I do wonder sometimes, however, how much we should still be trying to influence their lives. Hopefully we are doing a little of each – it’s tough to avoid either.
We have listed below some good ice-breaker games which will help the kids to get to know each other (and you to get to know them, too). This is a noisy, running around game which works well as an ice-breaker.
You'll need chairs for all of the kids, and space to play.
I’ve seen it work with university students as well as with six year olds. If they get flustered and panic it disrupts the flow of the game.
Difficulty: easy Age Range: all ages This is a really simple exercise for a large group which encourages connection and focus.
Whether you’re a drama teacher, director, or running a course, acting games are a fantastic tool.This is probably my all-time favourite game, as it can be tailored for all occasions, works with all ages, breaks the ice when people don't know each other, and causes much merriment even when played with the best of friends.
