It was Five Bananas Long

This game takes a bit of prep before the activity. You need to go out and measure 'random' things in an area. i did this in my hometown, in the centre of town with shops and parks etc. we took a measurement of a banana and then began to measure signs, objects, poles, statues, benches, a rotunda anything interesting, marking how many 'average' bananas in size it was. the next night, we split our small youth group into 2 groups and sent them out with each youth leader to measure the objects on the peice of paper. our kids ran from place to place and they had a lot of fun. we threw in a couple of extra bonus questions, like 'when was the church built, how many windows does the post office have' etc. it works with different ages, and they youth just loved the randomness of it all and the wierd looks from passer bys!

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.
