* As each person comes through the door they are given a piece of paper with the name of an animal on it, example, cow, duck, etc. As you give the paper you explain that they are to tell no one what there animal is. When you are ready to split into teams no one is aloud say anything they can only make the noise of the animal on there paper. They find the people making like animal noises and that is there team. Through the event they can use the animal sounds to cheer there team on and as a team name. (This would be neat to do with a Noah activity or lesson)
(* Special Thanks to Tony Northrip for sharing this great game.)
* Dividing by the Word; This is a kind of spelling game.
First decide how many groups you want to have, and have everyone form a
line. Then tell everyone to remember their letter when they shout it out.
If you want to end up with two groups, pick a two letter word, like "HI" , or a four letter word like "Love" and put two letters in each group. Have the first person yell "H". The second person yell "I". The third person Yell "H", and so on. Have all of the H's be one group and all of the I's be the second group. If you use a four letter word like "love" to make two groups, use two of the letters to form each of the two groups. The L's and the O's against the V's and the E's. Try these dividing Words: God (3groups), Word (4), Love (4), Christ (5), Jesus does not work, too many S's, Faith (5), and so on. Each letter of the word becomes a group. As you finish dividing into groups, have everyone yell the word that was used, like a cheer.
* Meeting New People; Have everyone write four
things about themselves on a card. No names, or male or female. All of
the cards are collected and mixed. Everyone picks a card at random from
the pile. The people then mingle and talk about what was written on the
cards until you find the person for your card. During the mingling you
will learn a lot about many of the other people. After everyone has found
the person on their card, each person must introduce the person that is
on their card and tell a little about them.
