This game worked out great for my youth group. The kids let go of inhibitions in this one. Everyone ended up finding his/her group, and it was a great bonding experience, even if it consisted of using only the language of animals. They were making positive eye contact with each other, and it got everyone in a good mood to worship God.
Our kids loved this one.
Great game and such a creative way to choose teams that doesn't leave anyone feeling left out!
This is a classic! (Make a fun outgoing kid the donkey)
At a pre-summer youth gathering the pastor brought me in (before beginning my summer job there) and he lead this game and purposely made me the donkey! It was the only the beginning. Great thing to do to a new volunteer or student leader with whole group.
