As a [event planner/facilitator/host], I am always looking for ways to make my events more interactive and engaging for guests. One way I like to do this is by incorporating themed icebreaker questions into the agenda. With Spring just around the corner, why not try incorporating some Spring-themed “This or That” questions into your next event?

How to incorporate Spring themed This or That questions

To incorporate Spring-themed “This or That” questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a list of Spring-related questions beforehand that are relevant to your event and audience. You can find inspiration by doing a quick online search for Spring-themed icebreaker questions or brainstorming with your team.
  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or poster board. Encourage guests to form small groups of 3-5 people and take turns asking each other the questions. You can also create a rotation system where each group moves on to the next question after a set amount of time (e.g., 2-3 minutes).
  3. Make sure everyone has a chance to answer each question and listen actively to their responses. Encourage follow-up questions, comments, and discussions that build on the initial answers. You can also share your own insights and opinions about Spring to keep the conversation flowing.
  4. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather guests in a larger group and ask them to share their favorite or most surprising answers. You can also use this opportunity to highlight any commonalities or connections that emerged during the activity.
  5. Consider using some of the insights or stories that came up during the “This or That” icebreaker as a springboard for further conversations and activities throughout the day. For example, you could organize a scavenger hunt based on Spring-related items or create a DIY craft station with Spring-themed materials.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your Spring-themed icebreaker questions fresh and engaging, you can explore different themes and categories that are relevant to the season. Here are some ideas:

  • Nature: Ask questions related to Springtime in nature, such as plants, animals, and weather (e.g., “What is your favorite thing about Spring?” or “Which Spring flower do you like the most?”).
  • Outdoor activities: Ask questions about Spring-related outdoor activities, such as gardening, hiking, and sports (e.g., “What is your favorite Spring activity to do outside?” or “Have you ever gone on a Spring picnic?”).
  • Spring holidays: Ask questions related to Spring holidays, such as Easter, Passover, and Earth Day (e.g., “What is your favorite Spring holiday tradition?” or “How do you celebrate the environment during Earth Day?”).
  • Fashion: Ask questions about Spring fashion trends, such as colors, patterns, and fabrics (e.g., “What is your favorite Spring color to wear?” or “Which Spring fashion trend are you most excited to try?”).
  • Food: Ask questions related to Spring foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and dishes (e.g., “What is your favorite Spring fruit or vegetable?” or “Have you ever tried a Spring-themed recipe?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your Spring-themed icebreaker activity, you can keep guests engaged and entertained while also fostering a sense of community and shared interest in the season. So why not give it a try and see how it can enhance your next event?
