I first learned this from my mom who would use it for our Family Reunions. It is a great way to get the kids/teens moving around, and even to involve the adults, and help everyone get to know each other.
Come up with a list of fun facts about people in your church. For example: Someone who has been on vacation to the Bahamas; Someone who has 5 (five) pets at home; Someone who has served in the military…
Using Microsoft Word (tends to be easier for me), create a table, and put each fact in each box. Leave space for a signature.
Here’s the deal, no one can sign twice (unless you’re desperately short of people), and you can’t sign your own paper. The first one with all the spaces filled in, wins.
Like I said, we’ve used this at family reunions, and I’m actually preparing this activity for my teen group. It’s a great way to learn about people you might not otherwise talk to. Also, with the fun facts, make sure you include things about people in all age groups if you are using this with the entire church!
