Icebreakers Find Jesus
Are you observant
enough to find
The Wisemen are looking for Jesus.
1. Everyone sits in a circle. 1-3
participants (depending on the size of
the group are chosen as wisemen and
asked to leave the room. While they
are away, one person is chosen to be
“Jesus.” The person chosen as “Jesus”
will secretly wink at others in the circle.
His objective is to not get caught by the
wisemen. Anyone in the circle who
sees that they have been winked at by
“Jesus” sings the first line of a
Christmas Carol and continues to play.
(Alternatively they can shout, “Behold,
I bring you tidings of great joy!”
The wisemen are then called
back into the room and
asked to find “Jesus.” Once
the wisemen are able to
identify “Jesus”, start the
game again with a new set of
wisemen and a new “Jesus.”
This game is a great lead in
to the story of the wisemen.
Add a Herod. Herod, like
the wisemen is trying to
find Jesus. But if Herod
finds “Jesus” first
Rudolph is waiting for Santa
so that all the presents can
be delivered. Rudolph needs
to find Santa. One
participant is selected to be
Rudolph and leaves the room
while Santa is selected from
those remaining. Once
Rudolph returns Santa
begins to secretly wink at
people in the circle.
If a person is winked at
the let out a loud, “HO!
HO! HO! –Merry
Christmas. Once Rudolph
identifies Santa, start
again with a new Santa
and a new Rudolph.
