Getting To Know You Poem
Take this gift-now don’t be shy!
Give it to someone with blue eyes.
Yes, you are the lucky one
But give the gift to someone who has a teenage son!
Look around from seat to seat
And give it to one whose cooking can’t be beat.
Some of us are tiny and small
but give the gift to the one most tall!
Next look for someone that has the newest wife
and give it to the love of his life.
Birthdays come and birthdays go
Give this gift to the oldest person you know.
Don’t let the gift get out of sight
Give it to the person sitting on your right.
The longest hair will win it now
If you have long hair, step up and bow
The gift goes to someone with a college degree
a good education pays off we can all agree.
The one with the most buttons of any kind
Will get passed the gift right now, this time.
We should stop now, it’s really time
The gift is yours to keep and everything is fine!
You’ll find lots of fun ice breaker games here
