“Minute to Win It” is a game show franchise where contestants take part in a series of sixty-second challenges that make use of items commonly found around the house. These games are simple to put together, ridiculously fun, and on occasion quite challenging! Anyone can play, from kids to older adults. They are great for use at parties and other social gatherings, and especially in kids ministry! In fact, I use “Minute to Win It” challenges just about every week.
At the time of this writing, I am not aware of a fully comprehensive , free online resource for all things “Minute to Win It.” You can find plenty of ideas, reproducible content, and references across various blogs and social media, but nothing all in one place. I am currently working on a comprehensive document with all the how-to’s for my own use, and will make it available for download once completed.
In the meantime, however, I do recommend the following resources for everything Minute to Win It:
