Icebreaker: Popcorn Sharing

This is a funny way to get students sharing with a new group. [Those of you who attended our Winter Retreat will Recognize this one.]

Decide who will start the game and give them the bag of popcorn. The person to the popcorn-holder’s right, chooses from one of the following questions that the popcorn-holder will have to answer. Then the popcorn-holder will give their answer in the following steps: Say a single answer, put a piece of popcorn in their mouth, say another, put another piece in their mouth. If anyone in the group can count to ten in between their answers, their turn is over and the bag passes to the right. If the group leader cannot understand the words the person is saying, their turn is over and the bag passes to the right.
