Youth workers can turn their youth groups into dynamic, exciting events that kids will actually look forward to with the great ideas found in Uncommon Games and Icebreakers. In this practical resource, leaders will find dozens of innovative, group-tested ideas for fun games and original icebreakers. To make prep time easier, along with full instructions, each activity has margin icons that give vital information, such as number of people needed, in/outdoor activity, time required etc. These fun activities can be used in any high school or junior high setting, including church groups, retreats, special events, etc., and they complement Burns' Uncommon high school and junior high school study resources.
As every good youth leader knows, games aren't just a fun way to fill the time-they are also a way to bring teens together to share laughter and life. The right activity builds a stronger group with deep and lasting friendships, and in Uncommon Games and Icebreakers, veteran youth minister Jim Burns brings together more than 135 activities that will help you connect your students . . . and bring the fun! These activities have been field-tested in youth groups across the country and are proven to bridge the gaps between teens, helping them to get to know one another through good, clean (sometimes messy) fun. Each activity has clear instructions as well as estimates from the pros on prep time, cleanup level and "gross" factor. Bring the fun to youth meetings, Sunday School classes, retreats, staff meetings, parent nights, camps, lock-ins and outreach programs, and watch relationships thrive.
