Anyone who?

3.5 stars

This activity is a good icebreaker - perfect to get people mingling and talking.  You need to print out a piece of paper for each person with something like this: 

Someone who has been to the Grand Canyon Someone who prefers custard over jelly Someone who roots for the Chicago Bulls
Someone who has been on an airplane in the past 12 months Someone who reads comics Someone who knows the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet
Someone who has been skiing Someone who is wearing red Someone who still owns a teddy bear

People then have to find someone in the room who fits the criteria, and have them sign or initial their name in the box - for example, if someone has been to the Grand Canyon, they can sign their name in the box. When all boxes are complete, you are done!  It can either be a competition to see who finishes first, or simply an exercise everyone completes. 

You can obviously change the questions to suit your group.

A potential variation (although requires additional preparation) is to have a number of different versions of the piece of paper (so everyone's is not the same).
