BOTTLE FLIP MOVE UP: Youth Group Games

Quick Overview:

An upfront or whole group race in which players must land a successful bottle flip in order to move closer to the finish line.

Supplies You’ll Need:

1. Water Bottles. One for each player.
2. Traffic Cones. As many as you want, depending on the amount of space you have.
3. Start/Finish Line. We like using gaffers tape for floor lines.


Create a start and finish line, then lay out cones in equal distances between the two.

Game Play:

All players begin the race at the starting line with a water bottle. Each time your game host says “flip”, everyone attempts to land a bottle flip. Each successful player then moves to the next cone and the unsuccessful players remain where they are. The first player to cross the finish line wins! For a tiebreaker, have the winners see who can land the most consecutive bottle flips.
