Most people working with youth are familiar with Balloon Stomp. This is a twist on the game which uses glow in the dark balloons. It would go well with a GLOW (God Lights Our Way) theme or just any evening activity.
Guard the Treasure is an active game for youth which can be played in a relativity small indoor area. One youth guards the “treasure” while the thieves try to steal it.
Glow in the Dark Ring Toss is a fun easy game for any “light” themed youth ministry meeting or Vacation Bible School. It only requires a few materials – glow sticks and water bottles.
Mutiny is a game which I have also heard called “human pinata”. In this game, the little pirates chase around the captain and steal his candy. This is a great outdoor game for VBS or youth group. If you play this for a themed vacation bible school or youth ministry meeting, have the captain dress up if possible.
Recycling activities for kids help youth understand the importance of taking care of God’s creation. We did a recycled raingutter regatta at our middle school VBS last year. Many of the student said this was their favorite activity of the week.
Wild Wet Wiffle Ball is a fun summer option for a youth group game. It is just like regular wiffle ball, only wetter.
