Youth Ideas: Four Men in a
Can you remember who is who and get
 everyone in your team in the sleigh?


One chair for each person and a couch (sleigh). Four
chairs can be used to replace the couch if you don’t have
one available. Decorate the couch (or four chairs) like
“Santa’s Sleigh.” There should also be one extra chair.


Game Setup
1. This game requires 10 or more people to work. Set
up requires that there be one more chair than people
and the name of each person playing written on a piece
of paper. Place the chairs in a circle and the couch on
one side of the circle.


2. Divide the group into 2 teams that can easily be
identified (e.g. girls against guys, or those wearing
glasses against those not.) If you want, distinguish one
group by making them wear red Santa red hats or some
other means of easy identification.


Game Play
1. Have everyone sit on the chairs making sure two of
each team is sitting in the “sleigh”. Mix up and then
pass out the papers with the names giving one to each


2. To win the game, a team must have 4 of their players
sitting in the “sleigh.” This is accomplished by having the
person on the right of the empty chair call out a name.
The person with that name on their piece of paper
moves to the empty chair and then exchanges the name
paper with the person that called him/her. The person
to the right of the new empty chair is the next person to
call a name and exchange with the person who will
move to the empty chair.


The game gets confusing trying to track who has
what name and how to move the opposite team
off of the “sleigh” and to get your team mates


Instead of a “sleigh” label the couch the stable.
Then inform the team that the first to get four
wisemen to the stable wins. (There may have been
more than 3 wisemen, although only three gifts
are mentioned in scripture.)
