Never Have I Ever—-Good Attitude Game
We are more alike than different. Most kids have to complete chores, do homework, work for their money, and study for tests. Most families deal with quarreling, stressful holidays, and members who lose their tempers easily.
This activity encourages children to participate within a group and recognize how much they have in common with each other. 4-H is a safe space for all children to belong and find common ground with others.
Honesty is the key element for this activity and everyone must agree to be truthful. Participants will stand up or sit down in response to the statements presented.
STAND for Done That!
SIT for NNNEEEVVVEERRRR!

For fun, have the children create their own statements. To make it simple, supply children with paper and pencil so they can write their own “Never Have I Ever” phrases and pass them along to the game coordinator.
