Starburst Posse


  1. Starbursts

How to Play:

Give every student a Starburst. Have them unwrap it and set it on their tongue. Tell them not to eat it. Have the leader shot out directions. Like "everyone of the same color must group together." Then "eveyone must find a partner with a color different from theirs." Now that they're loosened up start eliminating: okay we need a group of 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 orange, 1 pink. (multiple groups can be formed but if someone doesn't make it to a group in time, they're out and they can eat their candy.

"2 red, 1 yellow, 2 orange, 1 pink."

"2 orange and one of any color."

"2 red, 2 orange, one of any color."

etc. until only one is left.



Pro Tips:

  1. This game requires some quick thinking from whoever is leading. So pick someone up to the task.
  2. You're in control, if you forget to call out red, that means they won't get to go to a group. Which means everyone with a red color is out. That's okay, it's their fault for having a red color.
  3. Don't be afraid for mixers to go quickly. Or any game for that matter, fast paced is a great pace for your youth ministry.
