Team Building Activity: Mirrors

Mirrors  is among the favorite activities CTFN uses to break the ice during the start of its programs. It’s simple and effective in “breaking the ice” within the group. Either at the start of the training program or right after breaks, Mirrors will surely bring up the mood of the crowd.


Nothing really but upbeat music would help.

Number of participants:

2 to 1,000 perhaps . Since this will be done in pairs, an even number is required


Find a pair and have fun playing with your pair by following the instructions given!

  1. Find a pair.
  2. Decide who is person A and Person B.
  3. Person A will place her/his palm a few inches in front of Person B’s face. Yes, just like facing a mirror.
  4. Once the music starts person A’s can move their hands anywhere they want to.
  5. Person B will have to follow and maintain distance between their face and their partner’s palm until the music stops.
  6. Change roles.

Mirrors is mostly used as an icebreaker. Here are some questions that can help evaluate the team’s experience.
  1. How do you feel after the activity?
  2. How do you feel towards your partner after the activity? Towards the crowd?
