The Ice Breaking Games

Aug 17, 2007
Most of the youngsters are fun loving. It does not take a time to bring them in the mood of excitement. Especially, when you started playing the game which is given below, your party would definitely turns up to be the best one.

"Progressive Fortunes" is a lot of fun especially with a crowd of boys and girls. The guests were all seated in a circle. Each one was given a long piece of paper and a pencil. The strips of paper were cut beforehand of uniform size. Each guest wrote his name at the top of the paper and folded it over far enough to conceal the name.

He then passed it to his right-hand neighbor who in turn wrote out a four-word description of his past life. This caused a lot of merriment and, of course, the youngsters loved to make it wicked. This, in turn, was again folded over so that the writing was covered and it was again passed to the right.

Then John asked the crowd to write a four-word description of the one he or she liked best. Some of these turned out to be quite "flowery" while others were sarcastic depending upon the nature of the writer.

After folding over these were passed to the right and each participant stated in four words what he thought of himself. There was much hilarity among the youngsters as they described themselves.

Once again the papers were folded and passed to the right. Plans for his future were now written in four words by each guest, and the papers were passed to the right-hand neighbor who kept it. Then each youngster took turns reading aloud the paper he held which was supposed to be the fortune of the one whose name appeared at the top of each sheet.

Of course, these fortunes, being the product of many minds, were extremely funny. Before we realized it was time for refreshments. Believing that no boy or girl has ever quite had his fill of ice-cream sundaes, we decided to let each guest make his own as many as he could hold. On the dining-room table were all the "makings" for the sundaes. There were two large bowls of bulk ice cream vanilla and chocolate; a quantity of quartered bananas for banana splits, pitchers of chocolate and butterscotch syrup; dishes of preserved cherry and strawberry sauces; two dishes of nuts, pecans and cashews; a bowl of whipped cream and a dish of maraschino cherries for trimming. There were also assorted homemade cookies. Card tables were provided at which the guests sat while enjoying their sundaes.

The youngsters had a grand time concocting their own sundaes, some of which, needless to say, were very original. When the evening was over many of the guests had four sundaes to their credit.

Dont hesitate to let your "fourteeners" have a party. Its lots of fun for the parents as well as the youngsters.
