A classic party game enjoyed by kids and adults alike. This icebreaker involves taping the name of a famous celebrity - whether it be an actor, writer, cartoon, or fictional character - to everyone's back. You then have to ask other party-goers questions to figure out who you are.

1. Write celebrity names (either all types of celebrities or within a specific field ex. cartoons, music, movies etc.) on index cards.
2. It’s best to have 2-3 cards per child
3. Using clips or string/ necklaces with hooks, attach a card to each necklace and hang it down the back of each child. The child should not see the celebrity name hanging down their back. (Simple sticky name tags can be put on the players backs if you don't have the necklaces with clips).
4. This is best done as children arrive at the meeting/party/event.
5. Game Leader must stay at the table or area with all the cards.
How to Play
1. Once a child has a card on their back, they join the rest of the group.
2. Their objective is to find out the name of the celebrity on their back.
3. They cannot ask who it is, but rather can ask people at the party for clues to help them figure out who it is.
4. When a child is confident they know who is on their card, they return to the table to tell the game leader.
5. If the child is correct, they get a new card and continue to play.
6. If not, they keep playing until they guess correctly.
