*Here's a great ice-breaker for your youth group, called Shoe Chat:

1. Split the group into 2 halves.

2. Get each half of the group to line up against opposite sides of the room.

3. Have each student take off 1 shoe and make a pile of their team's shoes in the middle of the room. Each team should have a separate pile next.

4. Relay style, the first person from each team selects a random shoe from the other team's pile and then find the person that shoe belongs to.

5. Once they have found their match, have a question ready so each student in the pair can answer it and get to know each other a little bit better.

6. Have the next player from each team start the same process once the duo before them finds each other.

7. Continue until all players have had a chance to go.

Hope your students enjoy the game!

P.S. - We just released a brand new Identity & Easter Bundle. It includes a new Identity escape room event & series, and our new Easter series:

youth group lessons on Easter and Identity


FINSTA ($49 VALUE): This product contains a 4-week series and an accompanied one-hour Escape Room event helping students find their true Identity in Christ.

FINSTA SERIES: The new Finsta 4-week series encourages students to push the fake aside and face the world with their true identity in Christ. A “Finsta” is a fake Instagram account that is typically shared with only a few friends. The theme of the series connects that idea with how we create a fake identity in real life rather than embracing our true identity.

FINSTA ESCAPE ROOM EVENT: Included in this product is everything you need to host a one-hour escape room event helping students find their identity in Christ.

SHOOK ($35 VALUE): This new 4-week Easter youth ministry series teaches students how Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection disrupted the world and changed the course of history.


* Note: The game we published above is a variation of a game posted here: https://youthgroupgames.com.au/games/383/shoe-talk/
