Blanket Names

Equipment: a tarp or blanket

·      Divide the participants into two group
·      Place the tarp hanging in-between the two groups
·      The groups will send one of their team members up to the tarp
·      When the tarp is dropped the two people at the tarp have to say the other’s name
·      The first one to get it right “wins” the other person to their team
·      The team with the most players at the end of five minutes wins

If everyone already knows each others names, then give them positive nicknames. This gives an added twist to relationships, and every time they joke around about the nicknames they remember their experience.
