This week’s Freebie Friday is donated by Chris Wheeler, the Youth and Family Director at First UMC in Kennett, Missouri. I can tell she put a lot of work into this point sheet for a photo scavenger hunt around town. It sounds like a blast! Here are my favorites:
- Picture of everyone in the group wearing some sort of Cardinals apparel – 10 points
- Picture from inside a car getting washed in a car wash – 5 points
- Picture of the entire group in a bathtub – 10 points
- Picture of someone in police handcuffs – 15 points
Personally, I like to add a lot of zeros to the end of my game point system to make it sound more exciting. For example, everything that’s worth 10 points is now worth 1,000 or 10,000 points and anything worth 15 points is now worth 1,500 or 15,000 points. I know mathematically it doesn’t make a difference — it just sounds cooler.
CONTRIBUTE TO FREEBIE FRIDAY: If you’ve benefited from others who have freely shared their youth ministry resources online, consider giving back to the community by sharing your own materials here. Send me your donations for review and if I publish them in a Freebie Friday, you’ll receive full credit, a link, lots of gratitude and a warm feeling inside that comes from sharing with others.
