Game: "Fruit Ninja: LIVE"

I was about creating "Fruit Ninja: Live", since I had come up with a couple version of "Angry Birds: Live" and "Just Dance: Live". I was all excited and thought I would be SO creative, by coming up with a "Fruit Ninjas: Live" but brilliant people at Youth Ministry Movement already beat me to it! Giving credit where credit is due here is THEIR version of "Fruit Ninjas: Live"...



Supplies
* Water balloon * Food coloring or fruit juice
* Twine
* Broomstick
* Bat or stick with a needle or nail poking out of its side at a 90 degree angle
* Plastic

Preparation
Decide how many participants you will have and how many pieces of fruit (balloons) you would like each to have. Multiply those two numbers and you get the magic number. Fill the magic number of water balloons with liquid (fruit juice or water tinted with food coloring) tie each off. Cut the magic number of 3–5 foot lengths of twine. Tie one end of twine securely to each balloon and the other in a loop that will slide easily on the broomstick.

Play
Pick your participants, and give them the bat. Have two volunteers load one of the balloons on the broomstick and begin to swing it. Begin timing when the leader says go stopping when the fruit (balloon) is slashed. Repeat however many times you prepped for and add the times together. The participant with the lowest total time wins!
