  2. Debra says

    similar to breakfast scramble, we do lesson or story scramble. using a coloring page for the lesson, cut it up into pieces, set the kids in teams and the group to assemble their complete picture first wins.

  5. Amy says

    The new game show “Minute to Win It” is a kids/youth ministry gold mine for games. These can be played as ‘up front’ games with only two players, or adapted for teams.
    I use at least one of these games every single week.
