A great activity for everyone

The 2010s

The 2010s
By Jon Zajac

### Intro

As someone who loves event planning, I’m always looking for new and engaging ways to bring people together. One icebreaker activity that has gained popularity in recent years is “This or That” questions. By asking participants to choose between two options, you can encourage them to share their preferences, opinions, and experiences while also breaking the ice and creating a sense of community.

For my upcoming event, I want to incorporate The 2010s themed “This or That” icebreaker questions to create a fun and nostalgic atmosphere that appeals to a wide range of guests. In this post, I’ll share some ideas on how to incorporate this type of activity into your next event and some themes of questions you can use to make it engaging and memorable.

How to incorporate The 2010s themed This or That questions

To incorporate The 2010s themed “This or That” icebreaker questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a list of questions beforehand that are related to the pop culture, events, and trends of the 2010s. You can find inspiration from browsing online articles, social media posts, or asking friends and family members about their favorite memories from the decade.

  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or a poster board. Encourage your 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 the 2010s to keep the conversation flowing.

  4. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather your 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 trivia game based on 2010s pop culture or create a photo booth with props inspired by the decade’s fashion trends.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your The 2010s themed icebreaker questions fresh and engaging, you can explore different themes and categories that are relevant to the decade. Here are some ideas:

  • Pop culture: Ask questions related to movies, TV shows, music, books, and other forms of entertainment that were popular during the 2010s (e.g., “Which book or movie from the 2010s had the biggest impact on you?” or “What is your favorite song from the 2010s?”).

  • Events: Ask questions about historical events, natural disasters, and social movements that defined the 2010s (e.g., “What was your most memorable moment from the 2010s?” or “Which cause or movement did you feel most passionate about during the decade?”).

  • Trends: Ask questions related to fashion, technology, food, and other cultural trends that emerged during the 2010s (e.g., “What was your favorite fashion trend of the 2010s?” or “Which social media platform do you miss the most from the 2010s?”).

  • Humor: Ask questions that tap into the humor and memes that were popular during the 2010s (e.g., “What is your favorite viral video or meme from the 2010s?” or “Which comedian or comedy show do you miss the most from the decade?”).

  • Personal experiences: Ask questions that invite participants to share their personal stories and memories from the 2010s (e.g., “What was your biggest accomplishment during the 2010s?” or “What is one thing you wish you had done differently in the 2010s?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your The 2010s themed icebreaker activity, you can keep your guests engaged and entertained while also fostering a sense of community and shared interest. So why not give it a try and see how it can enhance your next event!
