Junior youth games Memory games

How To Play Bop It

I have no idea why this game works, but it does!

Kids are sitting in a circle on chairs. You give them each a word of the memory verse. You 'bop' them on the head and they have to say their word. You bop the next person, they say their word etc. Once you have gotten through the whole verse, they all move one seat to the left. They then have to say the word that the previous person sitting in the chair was saying.

Once they start to get good at it, increase the pace. I got to the point where i was sprinting around the circle. Once you've done a lap, SCREAM 'change!!"...i think the key to this game was being quick and intense. They loved it, were screaming and laughing and what's best, they all knew the verse by the end of the game.

Go figure.

Materials Needed

Kids, chairs and a fit leader
