Today, continuing with our "Pinterest" theme, we share with you a couple of games that we've found on Pinterest that might be worth trying with your own youth group.
This one looks like fun! Use tape and PVC pipe to create a "human foosball" board in a large space. This game is perfect for large groups of people. See photos on how to set up this game and complete instructions on how to play here!
Materials: Masking tape or painter's tape, PVC pipe, duct tape, a soft ball (large enough to kick)
This is a great critical thinking game! Make large letter tiles and challenge the group to a game of scrabble or bananagrams outside (or in a large space). If you make the tiles durable, they can last a long time. You can see photos on how to create these letter tiles here!
Materials: Large letter tiles
Pinterest can have a lot of great ideas for you to try with your group. Sometimes these ideas are great, and sometimes they aren't. Before using an idea on your group, you might want to test it out. For crafts, make the item. For games, find the materials you need (or make them) and maybe even test the game out on a few "guinea pigs" before you play.
Sometimes ideas need adapting, too. Don't be afraid to change and morph ideas based on your group, resources, space, and other limitations.
