How To Play Honey If You Love Me...

This is a brilliant circle game!

Basically get a circle of chairs set up and get the whole group to sit in them, except for one person who starts in the middle. This person then has to select someone and gently sit on their lap and say "Honey, if you love me, please give me a smile" (or some variation on that sentence). If the person in the seat smiles or laughs then they have to swap with the person in the middle. It is then their turn to chose someone and start the process again. Obviously, if the person doesn't smile then the middle person has to get up and try it on someone else.

This game can be a fantastic icebreaker.

Discussion

There has been a lengthy discussion going on about whether this game is appropriate to play at youth group. After lots of back and forth we can see that it's something that is ultimately up to the personal discretion of the youth group and youth leaders. For some youth groups this game may be OK to play and for others it wouldn't be helpful at all.

Some of the questions we all need to consider when we are choosing games to play at our youth group are things like: will it be helpful? Will it be encouraging? If you deem it to be an unhelpful or discouraging game, then maybe it's not for your youth group. And that's OK because, after all, the games on this website are all just ideas - take them or leave them. God bless.
