Bigger and better contest

Begin by dividing your youth group into groups of 4-8 or so, and give each group a paperclip. Send the groups out to the surrounding neighbourhood going door to door asking people to trade them the paperclip for something bigger and/or better. They can say they are from your youth group (increasing your visibility) and describe what they are doing as a contest against the other groups. We had tonnes of fun doing this. We went from the paperclip to a pencil, to a doggy biscuit, a can o tomato soup, two bags of used clothes, a working computer scanner, then it just went nuts!! This event could turn into garage sale filling event, or even a fundraiser, either way, it is lots of fun (maybe have a vehicle that is accessable for large items). Enjoy.

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.
