Details3 awesome youth group games!
SWING IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT
Making a mess and memories at the same time! Place any (messy) food on a baseball tee. Students take turns hitting those items in to the crowd. (Ideas: bag of chips, bowl of ping pong balls, bananas or other fruit, bag of whip cream/ shaving cream/chocolate syrup/pudding, water balloons, paper bowl of relish.) Aiming at the targets in the crowd: 3 people holding hula hoops. The best part: No athletic ability required!
This guessing game is hilarious! Especially for the crowd…and the leaders. Bring a student up front and give him/her ten seconds to “name anything”. At the end of 10 seconds, the host says, “Oh, no…sorry! We were looking for ____________!” and put the drawing/answer on the screen. (It’s a game that can’t be won…but will keep the room laughing with every attempt!)
FAMOUS MOVIE POSTERS
This group games is great for getting students moving around! Break the group in to team of 3 to 5. Groups must work together to recreate the movie poster that comes up on the screen. (The trick: everyone in the group must participate.) Have a judge wander the groups and choose a winner—or use this as an ice breaker and everyone wins!
