Fun Event & Activity Ideas
Ten Bags of Doom doesn't take much set up time, just a lot of clean up. This works great as a motivation/marketing piece for a certain event. Pick a staff guy who all the kids love to tell the students that if they bring a certain number of their friends to a certain event, they get to give him the "Ten Bags o' Doom!" The "Ten Bags . . ." are 10 messy items they get to dump on his head.

Rule of thumb, start with something sticky - and everything else sticks to it! Here's a typical order of 10 items we would dump on the poor staff person:

  1. Gallon milk

  2. Jumbo bottle of syrup

  3. Bag of flour

  4. Hershey's chocolate syrup

  5. Oatmeal

  6. Box of Fruity Pebbles

  7. Pancake Mix

  8. Jumbo Jar of Apple Sauce

  9. Jar of Prego Spaghetti Sauce

  10. Squeeze Bottle of Mustard

A couple things to remember:

  1. Only do "Ten Bags . . ." to a Male staff member - I don't have enough time to list the number of reasons why . . . just trust me!

  2. Only do "Ten Bags . . ." to a staff member who agrees to it, and has a good attitude (and understands the purpose of your group).

  3. Have a hose nearby!

  4. Prepare for a mess on the ground!

  5. Have the staff person bring a towel and a change of clothes!

  6. Also see Slop-stacle Course on our EVENTS PAGE.

I used this event as an incentive. If the students manage to invite enough kids to have 40 in attendance they get to do the 10 Bags'O Doom on the youth leader. It's worked well and gets the kids pumped to invite their friends to hear the gospel!

This was a lot of fun. We used different ingredients, but the same idea. The person who volunteered the last two times we've done it was a girl and we had no issues. I'm not sure why this would be a male-only game. I figured if the girls want to have fun so be it. Either way this is a great way to end a messy game night for sure, and the kids think it's hilarious.
