Name Relations: Get the group into a circle. Then start out by saying your name and a food that begins with the same letter. Then the next person does theirs, plus yours. Then the third person does theirs, the second's and the first's name and food. It then moves on down the line, so that the last person has to do everyone within the group. Different variations of this can be played but it is great for getting the group to know one another and the names. Compass Name Game:
Have participants stand in a circle.
One volunteer stands in the middle of the circle and starts the game as the "caller."
The caller points at a member of the circle and says one of the following: You, Me, Left, or Right.
Based on which direction the caller says, the person being pointed at must correctly name that person. "You" is the name of the person being pointed at. "Me" is the caller. "Left" or "Right" are the people on the person on the circle's left or right side.
Once the caller points and says the direction, he/she must count to five aloud. The person must correctly identify the name before the caller reaches five.
If the person in the circle incorrectly identifies the name, or doesn't speak in time, that person becomes the new caller in the middle of the circle.
If the person correctly identifies the name, the caller must move onto a new person of their choice.
My name is and I like to... Everyone in the group stands in a circle. The first person says, "My name is and I like to ______ (insert hobby and act out a motion from that hobby.) The rest of group then says, "(Person's Name) likes to (hobby) and acts out motion. Example, "My name is Dave and I like Fish (action out casting a reel). The next person repeats the process. The rest of group then says that person's name, hobby, and motion and the moves onto the first person's info. This continues until the last person goes, at which the entire group calls out the last person's info and moves along through the whole group and repeats everyone's info.
Name Tag This is a test for once everyone thinks they know everyone else’s name. The group stands in a circle, with one person “It” standing in the middle. All standing in the circle hold out their right arm straight, palm facing up. The leader begins by saying someone’s name. That person must say the name of someone else before they get “bopped” gently on the hand. If the 'It' person tags the person before they say another name, that person is 'It'.
