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 together.
Then let them run the course. Depending on how you designed the course, it can be a timed run or teams can compete against each other. The point is not in winning the race but on how the teams work together. Can be just a fun game or a team building exercise.
Hace you ever played this game? I would love to hear how it went!
