Not only becausethey do not work well with others, but because they very rarely want totry new things. This is because they want to stay in their own comfortzone, in order to control the situation. These types of children needsteam building all the more, and can benefit from a large amount ofteam work. Working with or on any time will help children realize theyare not the only ones who have a voice. Other children and adults aswell can have options and choose how things turn out.If you are looking to find some team building activities for kids that areselfish, you should stick to group activities as well as pair work. This willbring the child out of where they are comfortable and force them tointeract with others. When a child is out of where they feelcomfortable, they will try new things. If a child is selfish, working with ateam can help them learn to share, and work with others. Lone sharingactivities do not work well, as this is a child who does not need to sharemore, but less about themselves.Team building activities for selfish children should also have themthinking about others, and finding ways to increase the people theyassociate with. As most selfish children stick to one group. A couplegroup activities that may work well with such a child are:Games for childrenBLANKET NAME GAME: Have your group divide itself into two groups.Tell them to sit on the floor facing each other.

On thecount of 3, drop the blanket so that each of the selected members isfacing each other. Then race to see who can remember the othersname first. Who ever loses goes to the other team.HOGG CALL: Break the group into two pairs. Each pair must choose twothings: a machine and an animal. They then have to decide who iswhich. The pairs then divide up on opposite sides of the room.Everyone must close their eyes, and by only making the noise of theircharacter would make, the must find their partner. When they findtheir partner, they can open their eyes and wait until everyone is done.When conducting an activity with eyes closed, have the group raisetheir hands in front of their chests as bumper guards, and have at leastone person (leader) acting as a spotter.Both of these activities will insure the child does not play alone. It alsoinsures that each child is able to use a voice, rather than one selfishchild doing it all. Selfish children only need a little guidance and someteam work to find out it is more fun to be part of a group.All Rights Reserved © 2011 Team Building Activities HQ
