Best of Online Youth Group Ideas (so far)

How are you doing this week? Are you approaching a new normal? Have you taken time to rest? I am praying that each of you stays healthy and that God’s abundant gifts are made visible to you in this challenging time.

As I can, I will curate the “best of” resources in different categories in the hopes of making ministry easier in a time of social distancing. 

Best Online Youth Group Games and activities

What I’ve tried that worked:  “sketch and fetch” where the leaders sketch a household object youth have to race to find. Minute to Win It games, like moving small snacks using chopsticks or tongs.

Ideas I would like to try:

Fold ‘N Fly Paper Airplane Contest

Games via Video Conferencing suggestions from Lifelong Learning at VTS

A collection of Zoom Games

Quick STEM project challenges could be fun. I am thinking the index card ring to talk about transformation during Holy Week and the plastic Easter egg challenge after Easter Sunday.
