Do You Love Your Neighbor?

Written by
1. Have all the students sit in a circle. 2. One person will approach someone in the circle and ask the question "Do you love your neighbor?" 3. The person can answer in two ways, a. "No, I don't love my neighbors" The people sitting on both sides of him now stand up and try to change seats before the person who is it jumps into one of their chairs. Whoever is left standing is it and continues the game. b. "Yes, I love my neighbors, but I don't like people who ____" He fills in the blank with anything that refers to anyone in the group, like "who are wearing jeans" or "who have been in a musical". Those people then jump out of their chairs and must find a new seat. The person left standing continues the game by asking a person in the group "Do you love your neighbor?"

Christian Psychiatrist

Written by
Have a smart volunteer from your youth group exit to a spot out of ear-shot. Ask for/make up a topic/problem that is wrong with the group.{I.E. everyone thinks they are the person on their left.}It is more fun when it is something hey can act out. Bring the psychiatrist back and give them a time limit to get the problem pegged.{yes/no questions only} Switch psychiatrist, get a new topic, and go another round.

Blind Swing

Written by
1. Have the class stand in a large circle. When the students extend their arms, their finger tips should just be touching. 2. One person will be "it". they will close their eyes, extend their arms, and run (not jog or quickly walk, but RUN) into the circle. When he reaches someone, they will take him by arm and swing him around in a circle, and then throw him back into the circle. he will then keep running until someone else grabs him. 3. Each person should have a turn to be "it".

An Acting Game

Written by
What you need is vollenteers (or 2 groups of vollenteers competing against each other. Keep the number of vollenteers in each group small, say 2 or 3. You give them a senario (say a child who came in late). Then you tell them to act out the scene, but they have to integrate the sound effects that you play with the senerio. Play sound effects, some can have nothing to do with the scene (like in the senerio above, my youth pastor played the sound of a bomb, and of a lot of other things). The only real object is to come up with either the most acurate to the sound effects skit, or the most humorous skit (usually the latter).

A What?

Written by
*this is a complicated exercise and therefore complicated to explain 1. Have the students sit in a circle on the floor. The instructor will sit within the circle and before him will be many small objects. 2. He will pick up an object, a pencil for example, and while passing it to the person at his right, he will say "This is a pencil" The person will answer, "A What?" The instructor will answer "A pencil", and again the person will ask "A what?" and the instructor will again answer "A pencil." The person will answer "Oh, a pencil." The person than turns to her right and the process continues; "This is a pencil", "A what?" "A pencil" "A what?" "A pencil" "Oh, a pencil!" 3. Practice this once so everyone can follow the pattern. Then start again, this time continually adding in objects so each person is carrying on two conversations at once. One person will say to the person on his right, "This is a pencil", then turning to his left he'll ask "A what?" and continues, passing on the next object. 4. Try to get the objects clear around the circle.

I have had many youth pastors over the years ask me for my own personal recommendations on products. In recent years, this request has increased. So, I thought it might be beneficial to many to share on the site my personal favorites in different categories from Simply Youth Ministry.
