Another Post on Minute to Win It for Children’s Ministry

imageI am working on putting together a Minute to Win It themed games night for our church’s Awana program this year.  We added a special Minute to Win It themed game nights for our 3rd-6th grade girls and 3rd through 6th grade boys.  I’ve always wanted to try out these games, but our clubs (and game times) run between 50-60 up to 100 or so kids, and these games don’t work well in that setting.  Instead, for our Minute to Win It game night, I plan to pick a handful of the games and set them up around the auditorium.  The kids will be able to practice them as they wish, and then we will do competitions throughout the night for prizes, etc.  Fortunately, there is no lack of information out there from other people who have undertaken similar projects.  Here is a sampling of what I’ve found thus far:

Youth Leader Stash has done individual entries on a number of the games.  Here they are:

You can find the official listing of games, along with videos on NBC’s official site: Minute to Win It.

So, has anyone else tried this?  What worked?  What didn’t?  The games aren’t until January, and I’m already excited about it! I plan to share my thoughts, ideas and questions as I move forward in planning these events. If you have any advice, I would love to hear it.


  1. Wow! You are thorough Wayne. I'm excited about this themed event. Sounds pretty cool. I hope the graphics are helpful and seeing them put to use is one of the things that give me life! Love it!

    This is such a great resource! Thank you so much for posting! I can tell you, we're going to "borrow" some of these ideas for my church's youth event next month. I make sure to watch Minute to Win It every week for new ideas. Did you see the Beauty Queen or East vs. West episodes? I'm definitely tuning into the sisters' episode tonight!!! Thanks again!
