Speed Friending with Color Totes: A Creative Ice Breaker

Are you searching for an engaging program to help students connect and make new friends on campus? Neon Entertainment’s Speed Friending with Color Totes is the perfect solution! This innovative and interactive event is designed to spark connections among students while encouraging creativity. Here’s how you can bring this exciting experience to your campus.

What is Speed Friending with Color Totes?

Neon Entertainment’s DIY Color Totes program combines the fun of speed friending with the joy of artistic expression. Students receive tote bags printed with intricate designs, ready to be colored in using fabric markers. These tote bags serve as giant, portable coloring pages that students can proudly display and use.

How Does It Work?

  1. Book the Program: Start by booking the DIY Color Totes program with Neon Entertainment. Choose from a variety of pre-made artwork designs or submit your own unique ideas. Neon will ship everything needed, including the tote bags and fabric markers, directly to your campus.
  2. Setup: Prepare the room with multiple tables, each dedicated to a specific color. Place markers of the same color in the center of each table. For example, one table could have all red markers, another blue, and so on.
  3. The Speed Friending Element: To incorporate the “speed” aspect, set a time limit for students to spend at each table. Include conversation cards at each table to spark engaging discussions. These cards can have fun questions or prompts to encourage interaction. Once the time is up, students rotate to a different table with a new color of their choice and new people to meet.
  4. Color and Connect: As students move from table to table, they will color different sections of their tote bags and engage in conversations with new friends. By the end of the event, everyone will have a uniquely colored tote bag and several new connections.
