Looking for an indoor icebreaker for a group of children? This mitten game will surely warm up the crowd. First, have the kids remove their mittens and place them in a heap in the middle of a big room (you may need to push back the furniture). It's your job as referee to see that the pile is mixed up. Then, have the children stand in a circle around the pile (about ten feet away). At your signal, the players should race to locate their own mittens; the first child to find and put on his winter gear and shout "mitten match" wins. You can complicate matters by including hats or boots in the pile, too .
