What is the Dress Up icebreaker? 👗
In this icebreaker, participants are invited to draw outfits on a picture of themselves in a virtual whiteboard (e.g. Miro, MURAL, etc.).
It’s a great way to get people’s creative juices flowing, get people feeling lose, and to create a fun atmosphere!
How to run this icebreaker
Create a Miro/MURAL/Whiteboard with participants' headshots and a drawn body to dress up.
- 1 minute for the explanation
- 5 minutes for participants to work on the whiteboard
- 1-2 minutes per person to present. If you have a big group, use breakouts to present. Don't forget to add the whiteboard to the breakouts as a tool!
Instructions to participants
- Find yourself on the board.
- Take a moment to reflect on your mood/feelings today. Let your outfit reflect it. Use the pencil tool to draw your fancy dress clothes, hat, and any other accessories you'd like to add. You'll have 5 minutes for this.
- Once finished, everyone will take one minute to present their outfit to the group. (If you are using breakouts: Once done, we'll break into groups of three, and everyone will share their outfit with the group.)
