Game of the Month: Name Tag Grab

Purpose: This game is often used as an ice-breaker, but can also be a great way to talk about competition vs. collaboration.

Materials: 1 name tag per participant (with his/her name on it!)


  • Have the participants stand in a circle. 
  • Place a name tag on each participant's back.  Do not let them know what name they have on their backs, also, be sure that no one has his/her own name on his/her back.
  • On "Go!" the group is to scatter and to try and find their respective name tags. 
  • When the find the person who has their name tag, they should introduce themselves, or do a funny handshake, and then take their name tag and put it on their chest.
  • Once a player has both found his/her name tag AND no longer has a name tag on his / her back, he/she is to return to the original circle.
  • The game ends when everyone has returned to the circle.
  • Time the group's performance to see how quickly they can complete the challenge.
Things to Note:
  • How long did it take the group to complete the task
  • Were they competitive in their approach, trying to be the first to complete the task?
  • Were they collaborative in their approach, not worrying about only themselves but rather how they can help everyone complete the challenge faster?

Caine's Arcade- [MUST WATCH VIDEO!]

Posted by Adam Kertesz

This is a must watch video and maybe my favourite one that I've seen all year. This kid is a perfect example of how creativity can shine through in so many amazing ways. We hear all the time about how video games are draining kids of their imagination and creativity, well check this out and tell me if your opinion has slightly changed on that topic.
