A fast and exciting team-building game.
For each team you need:
Teams of five to ten people sit in circles and compete to draw and
complete a human body (similar to a Beetle Drive) Each person
on a team throws the dice in turn and draws the relevant body part as
per the list below. However, they cannot add head, arms or and
legs before the team has a body. And they cannot add hands or
feet before they have arms or legs respectively. For decency
sake, instruct the teens that each body, leg and arm part or completed
body must have appropriate clothes and no naked or rude bodies will be
1 = Head
2 = Body
3 = One Arm
4 = One Hand
5 = One Leg
6 = One Foot
Playing the Game:
Whichever team completes their body first, they must all stand up and
shout "Body-Up!" and are awarded 100 points. The game can be
repeated 5 or more times or until interest and excitement die down.
Then add up team points and award small prizes to the winning
team and the lowest scoring team!
Afterwards the drawings could be displayed and teams vote for the best,
funniest and weirdest drawing. A variation could include drawing
the body starting with a head, then a body, then arms, then hands, then
and lastly feet. Another variation would be for teams to draw
their body in body-part order from the two feet upwards.
King David acknowledged that he was fearfully and wonderfully made
(Psalm 139:14). God has also made each one of us just as
wonderfully. Look at your fingerprint and compare it with a
neighbour's. Of the billions of people in the world, every person
has a unique fingerprint! That shows the great love and care that
God took in making each one of us.
God loves us so much (John 3:16), and we need to love Him and serve Him
with all our hearts. Our aim tonight was to finish drawing our
body so that we could get the points and win the game! Our daily
aim should be to watch what we say, how we live our lives and treat
other people. Make it your goal this coming week to do these in
a way that will please God.
