Games & Icebreakers, Up-Front Games

What On Earth Is In _____’s Purse?


Have a girl or female leader who is a good sport volunteer her purse for this game. It should be as honkin’ huge as possible. In fact, if she has a reputation for carrying a huge purse that has everything AND the kitchen sink in it, that’s even better. Get a few different students to come up front once you have a purse. Blindfold one kid at a time and have them reach in and try to guess what each item is by touch only. Whoever guesses the most right wins! For a fun twist, make the prize an item that is actually in her purse. To make it more fun by having the whole team to shout “(Name), what on EARTH is in ___’s purse?” before they guess each time.

    I would never do this to a youth leader without asking them well in advance so that there is nothing that could be embarrassing to be found.
