In the event adults are involved,there are some out door exercises that can be done to make thetraining both fun and informative.Balloon castles: Split the group into smaller teams. Using the balloonsand tape supplied to your team build the tallest, free-standing, self-supporting balloon castle that is possible. At the end of 20 minutes,stop the action. Make sure that the group lets go of their castle as soonas you say, “Stop!” If they do not let go, their group will be disqualified.Ship wreck:1) Divide participants into two groups with 8-10 members per group.2) Give each group a “ship” and instruct all members to hold onto itssides as they run the length of a playing field.3) Groups are to run with their “ship” until a staff member yells“Shark!” Then, all members jump on board the “ship.” The first groupwith all feet off the ground, gains a point. Repeat this procedure severaltimes. The first group to reach the finish line gains three points.4) Add up points to decide the winner, or forget the points and play “gofish” to decide the winner.All Rights Reserved © 2011 Team Building Activities HQ http://teambuildingactivitieshq.com
