Games & Icebreakers, Up-Front Games

Speed Greeting


Seven students, guy then girl then guy, etc. line up with a sharp girl at the end. Kids face sideways and turn to next kid passing a random greeting to the next person after they have received their greeting from the person on the other side of them. You can tell them they’re being judged on how creative their communication is the faster the game goes.

The third time, have someone give the last girl a pie behind her back. She pies the guy in front of her when he wheels around to greet her! Play fast music. Have hand towel ready for your pie victim.

Idea based on a Young Life game
