Fun Event & Activity Ideas

Milkshake Mayhem

Looking for a real easy way to just “chill” with your group? This is it…with emphasis on the “chill.”

Milkshake Mayhem is a great way to involve teens in your youth group with an activity that is fun, creative, and delicious.

Bring a good blender (two or three if you have a large group), which can handle lots of frozen fruit, ice cream, etc. Tell the kids to bring anything they would like to contribute as condiments (ex. ginger, ice cream, frozen strawberries, vanilla ice cream, honey, malted milk and Hershey's chocolate syrup).

While you are enjoying your shakes, don't forget to round out the night with some really cool games from the Game page.

This is a great time to fellowship and make new members as well!

    That’s right Percy..but if you want it to get crazy do this.

    First, before the REAL milkshakes: make some MYSTERY MILKSHAKES. You need:
    A bunch of dixie cups.
    A bunch of vanilla ice cream
    And a bunch of ingredients that should or shouldn’t be in a milkshake (mostly shouldn’t).
    Some ideas: berries, beets, baby food meat, carrots, garlic, anchovies, avocado, peanut butter,
    Make up small batches before the event, dispense into labeled (a, b, c, d..) dixie cups (each person should get one ‘sample’ of each mystery shake, and store in the freezer before the event. Keep track of which ingredient is in which labeled dixie cup.
    Take them out a bit before the event so they can start to thaw out a bit.
    Provide each student a spoon and their individual samples of the shakes. The goal is to identify the mystery ingredient. Provide an sheet with A______________ B________________ C_____________ so students can write their answers.
    When all have submitted, tabulate scores and announce the “MILKSHAKE MASTER” – the student that got the most correct. The prize is a gift certificate to Baskin Robbins enough to get a good milkshake.
    Then play some games.
    Then start the make your own milkshake event…
