The Sweetest Ice Breaker

About:

Start the party on a sugary high note with this ice breaker! Have each child pick 1-2 m&m’s that are different colors and then explain that each color of m&m is correlated with a question. Have the kids tell the others what color they have and their answers one at a time in a circle. This will allow the kids that may not know each other to find connections that’ll allow them to play for the rest of the party. 3 packs of m&m’s may cost you $7.

You can substitute m&m’s for other candies such as Skittles, but be aware of the different allergies or dietary restrictions that other kids may have. For instance, Skittles is made with gelatin, which is a meat product that vegetarians can’t eat. Other than that, this is a super fun ice breaker. We played this game at my 16th birthday party.
