There is a classic youth group game called Birdy on a Perch or Clumps that uses different numbers to mix up students, get them in different groups, and have tons of fun.

Have your group mingle and play christmas music in the background. You could even use a song like Relient K's "12 Days of Christmas" if you want to be totally on the nose with this one. You will display one of the slides on the screen and call out the number or slide (i.e. 5 or 5 golden rings). Students then need to get into a group equaling that number. Anyone who doesn't fit in one of those groups is out for good.

If you want to make it more interesting, when you call out the number, students need to into groups of the size of the number on the screen AND act out whatever is on the screen (Geese of Laying, Golden Rings...careful with Maids of Milking!) There is a joke slide of a Partridge in a Pear Tree which is #1 and includes everyone. Use that as an example, or somewhere in the middle.

This Resource Includes:
• Complete PowerPoint game file
• Individual (12 rounds) game slides (jpeg files)
• Title slide (jpeg file)

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
