Gimme Five…

Gimme Five is one of my favourite youth ministry games because it is so simple and the kids really get into it. First, you divide the students into teams of 3 or 4 and give each team a pen and pad of sticky paper. Then, you yell out various categories (such as “Gimme five kinds of fruit!”) and the teams must write down five things that fit that category as fast as they can. Then they have to run and put their answer sheet in a basket. Whichever team gets their answers in first (provided they are all valid responses) gets a point. Keep track and give the team with the most points a prize.

Here’s a list we’ve gathered to help you get started. Enjoy!
