Number of People: 2+

Age: 5th Grade and Up

Time: 10-15 Minutes

Equipment: T-shirts/shorts/hats (pick one and get enough so yout have one for each team), containers, freezer space

Set-up: Fill up the containers with water and place t-shirts, shorts, or hats in the water.  Then freeze them!  You’ll need at least one item per team and it’s best to use the same item for each team.


This game is the ultimate icebreaker. Tell each team that the first team to successfully put on the item of clothing wins!  Give the kids free reign to try to melt their block of ice!
