This game is a variation of normal paper scissors rock. I'm going to assume you know how that one works. However, instead of using just your hands, you use your entire body. For scissors, you stretch out your hands and open and close them (like a pair of scissors, or a crocodile if you like). For Rock you grab one knee with your hands and bring it up to your chest. And for Paper, you put you hands up in the air and move your body as if you're a sheet of paper in the wind.
It starts off with everyone choosing one opponent. They jump up and down 3 times, saying "paper, scissors rock" and on rock they do their action. Whoever loses becomes the winner's cheer squad, so they have to cheer for this person with whoever they verse next. If a person with 3 cheerers loses to someone else, they all become cheers for this other person. Eventually it comes down to two people with the entire youth group cheering! Lots of fun, and great way for kids to get to know each other's name.
