Relaxing games, Icebreaker games, Junior youth games

Everyone sits in a circle. Each player chooses a fruit or vegetable. Player A says their fruit/veggie, then the player's fruit/vegie that they want to pass it on to... ie Player A says "Strawberry strawberry, broccoli broccoli" player B says "broccoli broccoli, carrot carrot"... and so on.

What makes this game interesting is that you can't show your teeth at any point(which you do by pulling your lips over your teeth). If you do happen to show your teeth and get caught by anyone, you alert the group by screaming "teeth teeth" and flapping your arms at the player like wings (making sure you don't show your teeth in the process!). Depending on how you want to play, you can do elimination or points lost when teeth are shown.

If this gets too easy, get them to grab their tongue or something else to make it harder.

Played with the right group of people, this is an absolutely hilarious game. By substituting vegies with names, this could become a good ice breaker too :D

My students played a version of this game into the wee hours of the morning at our last retreat. A very goofy game and lots of fun.

i think grabbing peoples toungues is inappropriate for upstanding christian studaent. Give no place to the devil.

BLAH HA HA HA I can't believe some of yall are actually youth pastors.

I think they are supposed to grab their OWN tongue when playing, not someone elses
ShannonDecember 4, 2010 at 1:32 pm
Haha, sounds hilarious.
@Shane - funny comment, you'd be amazed how ridiculous some youth pastors are!

What's wrong with them grabbing their own tongue in a game? lol I don't get that one..they're teenagers..they should have fun and make memories..great game!

Some of you people need to get your mind out of the gutters and just have fun with these games! If you don't like them don't play them. Simple enough isnt it??? Are we Christians supposed to be so snippy with each other?

This is an absolutely hilarious game - super entertaining and super funny. Good bonding game, because EVERYONE looks and sounds ridiculous. My 6-week missions team played this in the van a couple of times on our long drives throughout Rwanda. Smash hit in my opinion!

I personally am a youth member, && I'm in
Charge of games tomorrow night, & this seems like
A great idea. Our generation needs to be drawn in by something.
So if fun is what it takes to get them there at
First, then hear the word so be it.
Get off people's back, this is not inappropriate.

Thanks for the game, I'm going to try it out with my youth group

@Shane, who are you to judge? If you dont like the game, dont play it but dont knock someone else if they choose to play it. These are ideas, we can change it up if we wanted to. And besides, as someone already mentioned, the young people will be holding their own tongues so in the future, read the instructions carefully before saying your comment. Thank you

As a junior/senior high school teacher, I realize that having teens "play with their tongues" is opening the door for inappropriate comments to arise during the game -- even it it's at a church function. It's unfortunate that this happens, but the most innocent statements or actions can turn into something that is inappropriate.

For those of you who are disciplining Shane (who posted his comment two years ago!), note that he has the right to stand up for what he feels is "appropriate" just as you do.

I hear stories from some of my students' youth group activities and they make me wonder. Have you noticed how society keeps accepting more and more behaviors that used to be taboo? What used to be considered "wrong" by society (and still by the Bible) are becoming more commonplace.

Sure, a game such as this is small in the scheme of life, but all of these things add up to build our character.

Anyway, thanks for the game idea. I plan on using it tomorrow (but without tongues).

I've played this plenty of times, and I always win...until the tongue part. Cracked me up so hard! Have fun everyone!

Was checking for a good game for my team and I must say this is the best game and will enjoy
JillJuly 11, 2013 at 6:54 am
We play something similar called "Pterodactyl" You must say "pterodactyl" to the next person in the circle to your left without showing your teeth. It goes around the circle clockwise until someone turns to the person who just said it to them and screams like a pterodactyl- that reverses the order to counter clockwise. if you show your teeth you're out. Our kids played this for 4 nights during VBS and never got tired of it!
