youth group games

Need some quick youth group games? When time is short, what do you do? Chances are, you pull out an old standby that works time and time again. Here are 3 easy, classic youth group games.

3 Have-a-Blast Youth Group Games

1. Cell Phone Shootout

The game host has a cell phone. The first person to call the number on the screen and get connected wins a prize. It works best when everyone in the crowd has access to a cell phone. And you must be okay with kids breaking them. Want to spice up this youth group game? Have kids race to be the first person to text the host a specific message.

2. Sit Down If…

This is another instant-classic game you can make up as you go. Have everyone stand up. The winner is the last person standing.

Begin to call out things, one at a time. If they apply to someone, that person needs to sit down. Here are some examples:

  • Sit down if … you’re wearing jeans.
  • Sit down if … you didn’t brush your teeth today.
  • Sit down if … you’re wearing a hat.
  • Sit down if … you can’t roll your tongue.
  • Sit down if … you’ve ever been to a Justin Bieber concert.

You can spice it up by adding some “Stand back ups.” Those always get a laugh as well. Keep going until just one person is left. Then give him or her a prize!
