Monkey In The Middle: Youth Group Games

Quick Overview:

A fun game from our friends at @youthministryideas to get everyone moving and working together. See who has fast reactions and see who has a hard time getting out of the middle. A large group spin of pickle in the middle is sure to be amazing for your group!

Supplies You’ll Need:

1. Chairs. Have enough chairs for everyone in your group minus one
2. Dodgeball.


Place all the chairs in a circle facing inward. That’s all for set-up! Super easy

Game Play:

Works just like pickle in the middle only with more people. The person in the middle must retrieve the dodge-ball or intercept it from going to someone else. When the person in the middle catches the ball the last person to touch the ball from the circle is now in the middle and has to take the place of the former monkey. Have fun! It gets super crazy!!!
