This game is an active game that combines many activities.

We came up with about 45 different activities for the kids to do and gave them all different point values. For example:

Sing Jesus Loves me – 1 point

Outline Colossians Chapter 1 – 12 points

Tell me the 5 purposes of our Youth group – 7 points

Throw the Frisbee into a basket 10 times as a team – 5 points

You can get as creative as you want with this. I had some fun random activities and then some that pertained to the lessons we had been going through.

We then took ping pong balls and marked them all with numbers based on the point values of the different activities. I hid them throughout the entire church. The kids broke up into teams and as teams they had to search for the ping pong balls and then do the activity that corresponded to the point value on the ball. The kids absolutely loved the game and are begging to do it again. You could also use easter eggs instead of ping pong balls.

Thanks to for lending us this game!
