  1. Provides workshop activities to help "break the ice" in a group and help participants to get to know each other.
  2. Provides four different and fun warm-up games for workshop facilitators to choose from.
  3. Applicable to design thinking and other training programs requiring warm-ups.


Warm-ups can stimulate creativity, boost group dynamics, bring about relaxation, or be used as an icebreaker to get to know one another.

Warm-ups promote collaboration and strengthen a curious attitude. Warm-ups thus support the design thinking process, serves as an energizer, and improve problem-solving.

In design thinking, we use warm-ups not only at the beginning of the workshop, but also after a break or when we realize that the group is no longer working efficiently. This can take place in any phase of the collaboration and have different goals.

NOTE: This training package includes:
1. Warm-up Games (PowerPoint format)
2. Numbers Game (PowerPoint format) - for printing numbers 0 through 9

Benefits of doing warm-up:
•  Create a positive group atmosphere
•  Give workshop participants the chance to get to know one another
•  Remove social barriers
•  Reduce pressure to succeed
•  Activate and release positive energy
•  Distract the group a little bit so concentration is improved afterwards
•  Prepare the team for a certain mindset or way of working
•  Have fun and share a laugh

This presentation includes four warm-up games:
1. Clapping Game
2. Walk & Stop Game
3. Numbers Game
4. Communication Game
