By the time you read this, my wife should be close to done giving birth to our forth child. So, in honor of this momentous occasion, our game of the week is the “Baby Bottle Chug.” Materials 3 (or more) baby bottles Liquid to drink The game is simple. It makes a great up front game. Buy three or more baby bottles, fill them with liquid like pop or water, and set them on the stage. As the up front game, simply pick three volunteers and have them sit in front of the bottles. At a signal, they race to see who can drain the baby bottle first.  Be sure to poke a hole in the...

If you have a youth room, you likely have a ping pong table. Why not put that table to good use this week by playing this fun and crazy version of ping pong! What you need Ping Pong Equipment Two VERY LARGE shirts per table  This can be either an upfront game, or an awesome tournament. Its pretty simple. Divide into teams of two.

Football Soccer

Games are great for youth ministry, but if you have a few of the super-athletic types (such as myself) they can end up dominating and making the game not-so-much-fun for everyone else. To make things more interesting, try this variation on an old world favorite. Soccer is fun. Football is fun. But playing soccer with a football? Yeah, thats pure awesomeness.  The rules are simple. Set up an area big enough for your group to play. Divide your group up into two teams. This can work with any size groups, but an ideal size is between 6-10 per team. Once they are divided into teams, the...

The Amoeba Race

Everyone loves a good race. And every youth minister loves to put a twist on things. Enter the "Amoeba Race." To prepare, mark out a predetermined obstacle course. Make it challenging – climbing over things, crawling under things, etc but be aware not to put students into any physical danger. Clearly mark out the directions so people won’t get lost. When the students arrive, divide them of teams. If possible, try to have each team have 4 or more members. The bigger the team, the more interesting the game! Tie a rope around their waist so that the students are close...

Life Sized Candyland

Everyone remembers the kids game "Candy Land." This version takes to it to an extreme level! This works best for smaller groups, but large groups can work as well. It also takes about an hour, so this is great for a lock-in when everyone is at that "I’m-so-tired-I’m-crazy" stage. Set aside a large portion of your building (either one room, like a gym, or traveling all through the building into different rooms) to set up your "board." You’ll need lots of colored construction paper for this stage. Set up the floor like the candyland board with...

Ninja

This game was introduced to me by some students a while back, and for some reason they love this game. Get your students into a circle (try to limit circle size to 10). The circle should be tight (only a foot or two between teens). Count down from 3, and each student will strike a ninja/karate pose. Once they are in the pose, they do not move until their turn. When it reaches their turn, they “attack” by trying to slap at the hands of either person on their right or left. When a person attacks, the other person is able to move out of the way, only to free again. They get one...
