Jonathan's Answers to Tough Questions

QUESTION:

Jonathan,

I have a small junior youth group and we always run out of games to play. Can you help? There are about 5 people on a small night and 15 on a good night. Please help???

Chad Alexander, Maple Ridge, Canada

ANSWER:

Chad,

Thanks for e-mailing me and allowing me to MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF YOU!!! :)

First- you're not alone. I get TONS of e-mails from people whining ... did I say that out loud? I meant . . . I get TONS of e-mails from people asking me for small games, claiming that I don't have games for small groups. Don't worry. I'm not taking it personal or anything ... you big poopypants!!! Some people like to just have their hand held.

Seriously, I don't know what most people call SMALL, but when I started- I had 7 kids and I played games from my list. My numbers grew and I adjusted accordingly.

There are TONS of games on my game list that work for smaller groups. I just clicked on my ANYWHERE GAMES page (which, by the way was called GAMES FOR SMALL FACILITIES on my old Jonathan's Resources Page) and found a TON of games for smaller groups. Don't believe me? I'll list some off that page:
    ALPHABET SOUP
    ANKLE BALLOON POP
    BABY FOOD/HOT POTATO WITH A TWIST
    BACK TO BACK
    BANANA DRESS UP
    BATTLE OF THE BAGELS
    BOBBING FOR WORMS
    BUILD YOUR OWN SNOWMAN
    BUBBLE GUM SCULPTURE
    BUG COLLECTING
    BUTT CHARADES
... that's 11 games and I'm still in the B's. Are you sure you don't want to just look through my list?

Happy hunting.

Jonathan
