Human SlinkyOne year ago, we created a blog that we hoped would be a help to Student Pastors and others by sharing the best up front and group games that we had in our arsenal. We have been blown away by your support and will continue to share even better games in year two. Thank you for stopping by stumingames and continue to spread the word!

Today we introduce to you, Human Slinky.

PREP TIME– 2-3 Minutes

ITEMS NEEDED– One Children’s Pop Up Tunnel Per Team

GAME TIME– 5-10 Minutes

PARTICIPANTS– 4 Teams of 2


Before you start the game, you will need to purchase a couple of childrens pop up tunnels. You can find these online for about $20, or at IKEA for a little bit more. If you’re worried about cost, buy one and time participants so they are racing against the clock, instead of four different teams simultaneously.

Plunger PushEvery now and again you need a fun and unique game to get people moving. With Plunger Push, you have one of those games!

PREP TIME– 2-5 Minutes

ITEMS NEEDED– Plunger & Skateboard (1 set per team), Large Room (preferably a gym)

GAME TIME– 5-10 Minutes

PARTICIPANTS– Everyone – Teams of 8-12


After you select your teams, have them line up in a single file line behind the start line. You will need an end line as well. If you are in a gym, you can opt to go half court or full court. If you are not in a gym, use cones to have players go around. The game is quite simple. Each player will be equipped with a skateboard and a plunger. The game requires that each participant have their feet and hands off the ground at all times, only using their plunger to move them to the line (or cone) and back to the starting line. The first team to have everyone make one successful round trip wins the game.

ITEMS NEEDED– YouTube Clips & Projector/TV Screen to View

GAME TIME– 10-20 Minutes

PARTICIPANTS– Everyone – with 3-5 Participants per Team


Before you start, pick some famous funny movie clips (make sure you can show them in church!). The clips should be about 30 seconds each and will need to involve: dialogue, background material, names of people or places.
