Who Are We Now?

This is a fun icebreaker or energizer! Great for laughs and energy, the shedding of stress, status and roles.

  1. Step 1:

    How to do it:

    1. Arrange participants in a circle.
    2. Instruct participants that they have to act out your instructions.
  2. Step 2:

    When pointed to they should act out following:

    "Super Model" - Participant should immediately pose as a fashion model. The two participants alongside the participant acting as a super model (the one on the left and the right) take the role of photographers and mimic gestures of taking a photo.

    "Elephant"- Participant poses as an elephant by immediately thrusting two hands held together in front to represent the elephant's trunk. The two participants alongside form a circle with their hands and place them on the side of the participant pointed to serve as "ears" of the elephant.

    "Jello" - Participant shakes his or her body like jello continuously. The two participants alongside hold each other's hands and form a circle around the target participant. The idea is to form a "glass" around the jello.

    "Queen Bee" - Participant turns around and puts his or her hands together behind the back (just above the buttocks) and flutters them back and forth to mimic a bee's tail. The two participants alongside thrust their arms away from the bee and flutter them like wings.

    "Daisy" - participant and those alongside him or her should freeze and not move at all

  3. Step 3:

    Expect that people will be confused and make mistakes. Such mistakes generate laughter and fun.

    To make the exercise competitive, participants who make a mistake (both the one pointed to and the two participants alongside him or her) can be eliminated from the game.
