Mother Daughter Ice-breakers
For Women's Ministry




Mom Said It
Give everyone a piece of paper (numbered for the amount of questions you want to have). Prepare ahead by making a list of all of those little tidbits of sagely wisdom that mother's give. Ask everyone if their mother ever said... and allow them to answer the questions. Give a small prize to the one that has the most "yes" answers or a certificate made up on the computer for "The World's Wisest Woman" because after all she *must* be full of wisdom from all that advice!

Here are a few sayings to get you started.

Do you remember your mom ever saying...
  • Haste makes waste.
  • A rolling stone gathers no moss.
  • Money doesn't grow on trees.
  • You made your bed. Now lie in it.
  • If at first you donít succeed, try, try again.
  • A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.
  • Keep your words sweet. You may have to eat them.
  • Don't talk with your mouth full. If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all.
  • Anything worth doing is worth doing right.
  • Actions speak louder than words.
  • An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
  • The early bird catches the worm.
  • A chip off the old block
  • Don't cry over spilled milk
  • Sit like a lady!
  • A penny saved is a penny earned.
  • If the shoe fits, wear it.



How Well Do You Know Your Mother/Daughter?
Have paper and pen for each mother and daughter. Have them number 1-10 and answer the questions as you read them aloud. (Or you could already have the questions written out on handouts for them.) Afterwards give a few minutes for them to compare answers and total the correct answers on both sheets for their combined answer total. Give prizes to the mother-daughter teams that have the most points.
  1. What is your mother/daughter's favorite color?
  2. What is your mother/daughter's favorite song?
  3. What is your mother/daughter's favorite flavor of ice-cream?
  4. What is your mother/daughter's favorite flower?
  5. What is your mother/daughter's favorite food?
  6. What is your mother/daughter's favorite animal?
  7. What is your mother/daughter's favorite season?
  8. What is your mother/daughter's favorite restaurant?
  9. What is your mother/daughter's favorite holiday?
  10. What is your mother/daughter's favorite place to shop?
