Car Smash at Our Junior High Event

 —  October 25, 2011 — 3 Comments

This past weekend our junior high ministry put on an incredible event called The 3. It is on the 3rd Friday of the month, lasts 3 hours and costs $3. They have had incredible themes and games each time, but this idea was next level: a car smash! So fun … made quite the mess but was super memorable and no doubt the thing talked about when kids got back to school Monday. Brilliant!

  1. It looks as though there is a price on the sign there…did you use this as a fundraising event? That sounds like a fun idea…maybe for an upcoming trip!

  2. I’d really be interested in how this was set up cost wise/safety/parents not freaking out….Sounds like an awesome time…

  3. A few details:
    We paid $300 for the car. Kids paid $1 for five swings with a sledge hammer. Over the course of the nite, 200 kids paid to play. The next day, we sold it for scrap for $75. So the whole thing cost us $25!

    We made kids wear googles, gloves and boots ( we had a big pair of boots they slipped into). The only comments we heard from parents was from dads who thought it was awesome!
