This is a great weekly segment for any preteen group meeting.
Have one of your kids phone his or her parent at home and get the
parent to say the “word of the day” within 30 seconds. Of course,
the preteen isn’t allowed to say the actual word, but almost
anything else goes.

Have preteens volunteer to call home; don’t force anyone to be
in the spotlight. And make sure the caller can count on his mom or
dad being home. Just before dialing the phone, tell your group what
the word of the day is. Make it something crazy and fun, such as
“diaper” or “aardvark.”

Pipe the phone line through your sound system, hold a microphone
up to the phone, or borrow a speaker phone. If the parent
successfully says the word of the day, award the preteen something
that encourages future participation, such as a coupon for $5 off
your next outing or a free camp picture.
