Games For Youth Ministry: Back to Back

 —  April 9, 2013 — 2 Comments


This week we played a youth ministry classic…BACK TO BACK.
It is pretty simple:

Round 1…

  • Get students in pairs
  • Sit on the floor “back to back”
  • Using only their legs as leverage, stand up

Round 2…

  • Have the pairs that were able to do it grab another pair
  • Now in groups or 4 try again.

Rounds 3…4…5…

  • If your group is large enough have the winning groups of 4 find another group of 4
  • Or just keep adding students to the circle and see how many can accomplish this back to back mission

Things to know:

  • This game is not skirt/dress friendly
  • Have music in the back ground, this always feels better
  • Find a prize. If you think you are going to have a bunch of winners buy a bag of sun size snickers so you have a lot of cheap prizes
  • Why is this tech? Grab the graphic for free. Put it up on your screens while your playing!
