Take a few t-shirts (usually one with your student ministry logo or a recent evnet shirt) soak in water, fold, then freeze them for at least 24 hours. Bring the shirts out and ask for volunteers. have the volunteers race to put the t-shirts on. The next 10-20 minutes will be hilarious as everyone watches the students struggle to get the shirt on. Give the participants the shirt at the end of the game. This works well as a game to get things started at youth services or at any other event.


Thanks to our friends at www.pastor2youth.com for lending us this game!
