Here's another warm-up for a new group during this back-to-school season:
It’s Your Birthday
Time: 10-15 minutes
“Today is your birthday and this is your party! As hostess/host of this party you have to introduce as many of these people to each other as you possibly can.” After people have had a chance to mingle, do a quick hand count of who introduced the most people. To make it more like a party, play some music as the people mingle.
