Non-contact active games that practice social distancing

Low-movement, non-physical and non-contact

We'll say it up front - finding games that allow people to be active and at the same time maintain distance from one another is challenging. We've picked out ten games and activities that will all work well for social distancing at youth groups.

Some of the games might require a bit of modification. For example: Musical Statues will require players to dance on the spot and Captain's Orders will need to be played without the "group actions". You'll need to use your discretion when planning and playing these games.
