Honestly, this idea derived from an overwhelming schedule and lack of planning. Nevertheless, they had a great time and it turned out to be a lot of fun.
We announced a Bar-b-Que and games afternoon for all the youth and told them it would cost $3. When everyone arrived we divided them up into groups and gave them a list of things they had to “scavenger” to find. Knocking on doors, visiting stores, however, they could not spend more than their $3 per person.
The lists that I gave the them were actually the items we needed for the bar-b-que, including charcoal, appetizers, condements, hot dogs, burgers, buns, side dishes, desserts and game gear.
When everyone arrived back to our starting point, we had everything that I had not had time to get together. We then had a great bar-b-que and played some fantastic games that they had come up with!
