Icebreaker Title: - What Kind of Tater are You?
To allow everyone to have a good laugh and get to know each other better.

Materials Needed:
Tater related gifts ex. a bag of potato chips, a watch it grow potato, Mr. Potato Head, etc

Read the story about Taters and then have everyone try to decide what kind of tater they are. I then gave each person a small "tater" related gift after it was discovered what type "tater" they were.


  • Some People never seem motivated to participate, but are just content to watch while others do the work. They are called "Spec Taters".
  • Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding fault with the way others do the work. They are called "Comment Taters"
  • Some people are very bossy and like to tell others what to do. They are called "Dick Taters"
  • Some people are always looking to cause problems by asking others to agree with them. It is too hot or too cold, to sour or too sweet. They are called "Agie Taters"
