How To Throw The Best Food Fight Ever

Last year our youth group decided to end our summer with a food fight. My youth pastor said he had a tremendous success doing a food fight with his youth group that it became an annual event, so we decided to try it for ourselves, too! We also had a great turnout from our regular students and we also had a bunch of kids come to youth group for the first time. Last year was such a success, we decided to do it again, but instead of ending our summer with a food fight, we're ending the school year with a food fight when all the kids are dealing with end-of-the-school-year stress. Nothing like throwing a handful of spaghetti in someone's face to help you forget those finals, am I right? ;)

*Our next food fight will be June 3rd, so I hope to get some new awesome pics up! Stay tuned!*
**Update: Catch the results HERE!**

So you must be wondering, "Sam, how on earth did you control the chaos? I mean, it's a food fight amongst a bunch of teens, didn't it get out of hand?" Those are good questions. Keep reading to see how we organized our food fight for all the hints and tips you'll need for your own!


I totally have a "black" thumb. I have never really gardened because I haven't had experience with gardening and potted plants have never lasted with me... Oops. ;)

But today, hubby and I went out and bought us some perennials! I'm excited to see how everything will look when it all blooms. The pictures aren't that great since we're waiting on bulbs to come up, but we're proud of all our work today; we haven't ever put this much effort into the garden before.
