There is a new show coming to NBC called, “Minute To Win It”, which by the look of things was thought up by a round-table full of youth pastors. The games are genius, and even though the show hasn’t yet aired, as a youth pastor I am already excited about it and have begun using it’s premise (and more) in our youth group!
Last night was our first opportunity to begin our “Minute To Win It” segment. I created an on-screen graphic, a 60-second countdown video, and even managed to play the REAL show’s intro/instruction videos on-screen, too!
“Defying Gravity” was tough on our small stage. None of the students that tried could keep three balloons up off the ground for 60-seconds. We went down to 2 balloons and still no one could do it.
“Tipsy” was a blast, balancing three soda cans on their edge after ‘chugging’ part of each can’s contents proved to be challenging, but students that completed the task were handsomely rewarded.
“Hanky Panky” was a fun-to-watch game as well as participate in. Our problem was that I skimped on the tissue-brand and only had WalMart boxes of tissues. The WalMart tissues are only 110-count instead of the “standard” 160-count, so all three students who attempted the feat completed it with time-to-spare.
