The difficulty with incorporating themed events with preteens is understanding their culture.
So here are some theme ideas I have worked with and the preteens loved it!Not All Themes are Created Equal!
|Black-Out! All glow-in-the-dark games, and all kinds of fun!|
|Ninja style games, and everyone dressed in black. Definitely a favorite!|
|Easily the most successful theme. Boys and girls dressed up a ton.|
|Fighting evil turkeys. Everyone dressed in camo. Lots of fun.|
|Medieval theme! Knights and princesses, jesters and kings. Good times!|
Each theme has had its own unique set of games to parallel the theme. I think my favorite set of games was probably for ninja night or pirate night, or black-out night, really they were all pretty awesome. I hope some of these ideas get you excited about how you can use them in your ministry!
