Angry Birds Game (Life Size)

Recently, I was in charge of a large activity for the youth of our church.  The 14 and 15 year old girls and I decided to do an Angry Birds night, inspired by THIS and THIS blog.  It was a lot of fun to put together and I think the kids had a good time too.

Reading the scripture trivia questions to earn point for birds to shoot at the other team's structure.

We had a Red Bird team and a Yellow Bird team.  One would be shooting the birds and the other team would build their structure with the pigs.  Then, they would switch roles.  Which ever team had the most points by the end of the night won.

 We asked our ward congregation to donate boxes a couple weeks prior to our event.  We had great response, with more than enough boxes to spare.

Our piggies were balloons with a couple of coins inside (so they wouldn't roll off the boxes) and some taped on faces.

Our sling shot and birds were a water balloon launcher and some kick balls.

It was a little tricky at first, but by the end of the night, we got the hang of the launcher and hit a few pigs down.

At the end of the night, the winning team got their choice of candy bar to take home and then snacks for everyone.  The best part was that everyone pitched at the end to collapse the boxes and hauled them out to the recycle dumpster.  Less than 15 minutes and everything was cleaned up and gone!  A big thanks to everyone to helped, it was a lot of fun!

If you would like more details about this activity, please leave me your questions in the comments section along with a way to contact you.  More than happy to help!

This is such a great activity! Just wondering if you just kept repeating the process? Scripture chase to earn points then shot the birds etc and just did this over and over?
Sound fun!

@Tia-- Yes, we just kept repeating the process, letting each team take turns building the boxes up or shooting them down. We did 3 or 4 rounds I think.
