Get to know you games

Here are some ideas for easy
Get to know you games!

m and m game, know your neighbor game





As I said here, I was recently called to be the Young Women's President in my ward.
Holy cow- talk about overwhelmed!  But I am loving it too!

In an effort to get to know the girls, we played some get to know you games
at our last couple of YW activities.
The girls seems to really like the games and
we all enjoyed getting to know one another better!

group games, youth group games, young women games, get to know you games


This is a "know your neighbor" game.


I wrote down a bunch of questions on pieces of paper.  
The person who was "it" picked a question 
then wrote their answer down 
secretly on the dry erase board.

Then she read the question to the group 
and we had to guess what her answer was. 


m and m game, answer questions game, get to know your neighbor game, group get to know you games, group games

This is the M and M game.

I bought a few bags of M and M's and poured them into a bowl.  
Each girl scooped a cupful.  
When it was her turn, 
she reached into her cup and grabbed an M and M.  
She then answered a question based on whichever color she grabbed.  
It was really fun too and 
the girls enjoyed snacking on the treats as we played.  



The games were such a hit that I think I'll keep them around to play 
every now and then.  
I also think it would be fun to play with my own family for FHE or family night.

  8. Head's up! Obama has put a kibosh to any candy in the classroom! Snacks have strict guidelines to be followed and Distircts could be fined for being out of compliance. I heard the first offense could be $7000.00. Food in cafeteria must also follow specifics as to content, fat grams etc.

  12. I found your website by accident and was surprised about your craft works as well as the games. I will try them in my evening class after the autumn holidays. I do the teaching mostly by games. Thank you so much for the new ideas.
