WOULD YOU RATHER QUESTIONS
Here are 36 St Patty Would You Rather to choose from. LINK
After reading the question aloud, have the kids move to one side of the room or the other.
Make it the same every round. First thing read always goes to one side of the room and the second thing read always goes to the opposite side of the room.
SKITTLES GAME- GUESS THE RAINBOW
As kids come into club give them this ¼ sheet to fill out with a pen (not pencil) to guess the number of each color skittle. On average there are about 50-65 skittles per bag. Let kids know that so their guesses should be somewhere between 9-12 per color. Later in club do the big reveal. A fun way to do this could be to announce each color and who was the closest. After announcing each color, announce the winner/s for the lowest point differential. And give away prizes such as a bag of skittles, camp scholarship, lunch/coffee/froyo with a leader, YL swag etc. You could also use these instead of raffle tickets.
SKITTLES GAME- RELAY RACE
Divide club into teams. More teams the better, so less watching and more doing.
Line them up on one side of the room facing the other side and have them run to the bowl of 10-15 skittles.
OPTION 1 When they get there, they roll a dice and move that color out of the main bowl into a second bowl or cup. Run back and the next person does the same. Repeat this until the last skittle is gone. When there are only a few skittles left they have to keep rolling until they roll a number that will move one of the few remaining skittles and finally the last skittle.
OPTION 2 Not only do they have to move a skittle there is an action that they have to do when they roll a number. Doesn’t matter if they move the skittle or do the action first. Your choice of making them do only the action once they roll a number that will actually move a remaining skittle OR they HAVE to do the action of every dice roll until they finally roll a number that will move a skittle.
