My Name is _____ and I Like to _____

Type of Game Just Meeting, Icebreaker Games
Number of Participants unlimited, groups over 30 might want to split into two groups
Materials none
Where to Play inside or outside

How To Play:

Everyone in the group stands in a circle so that they can all see one another.

The first person says, “my name is _____ and I like to _____.” The first blank is their name and the second is a hobby. When they say their hobby, they also do an action that corresponds with that hobby.

The rest of the group says “_____ likes to _____.”

The next person repeats the process with their own name and hobby. The rest of the group then says the first person’s name and hobby followed by the second person’s name and hobby.

After the last person’s turn, the entire group calls out the first person’s name and hobby followed by the names and hobbies of everyone who followed.

Example:
Let’s say we have a group of 3: Nemo, Marlin, and Dory.

Nemo goes first and says, “my name is Nemo and I like to swim (swimming motion).” Nemo, Marlin, and Dory would say, “Nemo likes to swim (swimming motion).”

Next it’s Marlin’s turn and he says, “my name is Marlin and I like to cook (stirring motion).” Nemo, Marlin and Dory would say, “Nemo likes to swim (swimming motion), Marlin likes cook (stirring motion).”

Finally it’s Dory’s turn and she says, “my name is Dory and I like to fish (fishing motion).” Nemo, Marlin and Dory would say, “Nemo likes to swim (swimming motion), Marlin likes to cook (cooking motion), Dory likes to fish (fishing motion).”
