Using icebreakers for teenagers successfully can be challenging. You need to know your group of teenagers and the type of activity they prefer. To do so, follow these suggestions:
- Remember: Teens like active games and those they do not consider “childish.”
- When you decide which icebreaker activities to use, choose one based upon age, the groups familiarity with one another, and the purpose of the group gathering.
- Be flexible. Change the rules to suit the group and be ready to stop a game and start another if teens are not participating with enthusiasm.
- Build intensity. Start with simpler icebreaker games and increase difficulty gradually.
- Generate enthusiasm. Play an active role in the icebreaker activity.
- Use silly and fun props and equipment. Masks, stuffed animals, and brightly colored rubber balls and balloons add to the fun of an icebreaker game.
