Do You Love Your Neighbor?

This is a game favorite of our youth and can be played with large or small groups. Everyone forms a circle of chairs with one less chair than people. A person is chosen to stand in the middle. They point to anyone in the circle and say “Do you love your neighbor?” If they answer “yes” then the two people on either side must quickly exchange places before the person in the middle gets to one of the empty chairs. If they say “no”, then the person in the middle asks, “Who do you love?” The person will then say, “I love people who …” They can choose things like “people who are wearing white t-shirts” or “sandals” or “people who have kissed a boy”. Anything they want. When they say it, then anyone fitting that description must change places with someone else fitting the same description, all before the person in the middle grabs a chair.
This was great fun to play with parents and teens together as an ice breaker because eventually, everyone will have to rush to another seat and most people get a chance to be in the middle at one time or another.

Rabbit, Cow, Elephant

Form a circle with a person in the center. The person will point to someone on the circle and say “Rabbit” (or cow, or elephant.) The person pointed to must form the front paws of the rabbit and the persons on both sides must hold up an arm to be the rabbit ears. The goal is for the person in the center to tag one of the three people before they can form the “Rabbit”. If “Cow” is called, then the person pointed to must form the udders with their fingers and the other two must form the horns. An “elephant” is the chosen person being the trunk and the two outside people must form the LARGE ears.
It has also been played where a “Flight Attendant” is one of the choices. The person in the middle pulls down the oxygen mask and the people on either side, point to the exits.
Lots of fun and always good for laughs.
