This game is a potentially life-changing game. It is best suited for groups that know each other reasonably well.Sit in a circle and give everyone a piece of paper and pen. Each individual should write their name at the top of the piece of paper, then pass it to the person on their left.
This activity works best played in a large, open area.Pick three "elephants". These are the taggers. They must hold their right ear with their left arm, then rest their right arm on the inside of their left elbow. Their arm is their "trunk".They must chase after everyone else and attempt to tag them. When the participants are tagged, they also become elephants and have to chase everyone else.
Split the group into teams of four to five people.The goal of this game is to build a "carriage" or container to help cushion a falling, uncooked egg so it lands from a 2-3 story drop without breaking.Give the teams access to a variety of supplies - rubber bands, paper, straws, tape, and balloons.

I'm sure you've all participated in Car Washes to raise money for charities/camps/etc., but for something different, try a Dog-Wash-A-Thon!The idea is participants bring their dogs along and have them washed for a fee or donation.As you can imagine, this event is a lot of fun but also gets pretty wet and messy so choose your location wisely.
Dodgeball is a classic youth group game - definitely needs to be played in a place where balls cannot cause too much damage!Split your group into two teams. They stand in lines at the opposite ends of the hall or gym. In the middle, place 5 or 6 balls.Start by yelling "Dodgeball". The two teams then race to the middle, grab the balls, and start throwing them at the other team.
Do You Really Know Me
Everyone needs a pen and paper. Have everyone sit in a circle and place a bowl in the center.

If it’s theirs, they should place it back in and take another piece.
