This free icebreaker is just incredibly silly and you really have to be sure about your audience to run it. We were going to leave the icebreaker off our list as it really is that silly, but who are we to judge?
Training course contents:
Instructions for the icebreaker, ‘A Pants Icebreaker’ can be donwloaded for free from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.
At the start of a training course, ask everyone to provide you with their favourite popular saying i.e. ‘Just do it!’, ‘Thank goodness it’s Friday’ etc.
Write all of these ideas on a sheet of flipchart paper and perhaps have a little conversation about why the person likes that particular saying.
Pin the flipchart up on the wall and then explain to everyone that you would like them to repeat the phrase they provided, except this time you would like them to add, ‘…in my pants’ to the end of it.
We warned you it was silly!
This icebreaker is just a very silly way to introduce a training course or meeting and should be used with audiences you know very well.
