Youth Discussion Starters – Roll the Dice

In Discussion Starters, Youth Programming by Kev1 Comment

Pass around a die (dice) and have the youth roll it one at a time. Whatever number it lands on, you read a question/statement/task from that numbered category for that person. Sometimes other youth may want to add to the discussion or statement and you should allow that to happen. Whenever a category runs out, you have them roll again… or repeat them.
