MAIN POINT: Discussion starter. Once matched, you can ask a pre-typed question for the partners to discuss.
You will need some leaders to measure students when they come in. Everyone who walks into youth group gets a length of string (but make sure it isn’t their own). Each string is the same length as one other person in the room. Students have to match up with their partner when the game starts.
