This youth group game is a great icebreaker. It gets kids to move around a bit and definitely brings out personalities a bit.
You need no materials and you can sit or stand. The game is simple.
There is one or two people in the middle (depending on the size of the group) and that person must try to get out of the middle. They go up to a person in the circle and say:
Honey, if you love me, will you please please smile?
The person in the circle will respond:
Yes Honey I love you, but I just can’t smile. Yes honey I love you but I just can’t smile.
If the person responding smiles at all they take the place of the person in the middle. If they are able to say the phrase without smiling then the person in the middle must move on to someone else.
There is one main rule and that is that the person in middle can not touch the person they are trying to get to smile. Other appropriate actions or accents are allowed.
