Trivia ice breaker

Make new Rainbows and Brownies feel welcome with this fun catch and response game about themselves.


  1. Using the marker, write different questions on different parts of the beach ball – such as ‘How many siblings do you have?’, ‘What is your favourite activity at Rainbows/Brownies?’, ‘What music do you like?’, ‘What is your favourite colour?’
  2. Take turns to throw the ball to each member, saying her name before you throw. She should then answer the question nearest to her hand.
