Games & Icebreakers, Up-Front Games

Frozen Marbles (or Jellybeans)


For this game you’ll need:
2-4 large buckets or plastic tubs filled with ice and water.
2-4 bags of marbles (depending on the # of buckets used).

Students have 15 (or 30) seconds to fish marbles out of ice water with their toes.

Have a youth worker with dry towels close by to dry each player’s feet.
