Knowing that working as ateam and producing the best results possible is fully attainable whenchildren are taught to team build, many schools and activities aroundthe country are providing just that. The same goes for teens who arelooking to build management and leadership skills, team buildingretreats and activities are hosted all over the world to help the youth oftoday become great leaders.In order to provide the very best indoor team building activities for kidsand teens, serious thought and planning must go into each one of theactivities. Since children have a wider learning range, but a smallerattention span children specific activities have been made. Below aresome good examples of indoor team building activities for kids, orteens.Snowflakes: Give one sheet of paper to each person.

Fold it in half again and tear off the middle piece.Instruct the group to unfold their papers and compare their snowflakeswith those around them. They will find that their snowflakes may ormay not match others.Talent chairs: In a fashion similar to Musical Chairs, teens discovertalents and qualities of others. The leader, who doesnt have a chair,calls out a quality using a formatted statement. All participants whopossess this quality must get up from their chairs and find a differentchair to sit in. The leader will find a chair to sit in during this exchange.Instead of losing their place in the group, the person who doesnt get achair becomes the next group leader and determines the next quality tobe discovered. This simple exercise is a fun way to discover each otherwithout putting anybody on the spot. With an open time frame, it canbe used as a short activity or it can be used as a lead-in to a more in-depth discovery exercise.Knowing which games and activities are best suited for the group youhave, will make the team building experience all the better. The olderthe children are, the more range you can have with the games andactivities. If the children are young, you will have to create a high pacedgame, which will stimulate for a long period of time. Teaching childrenabout the benefits of team work and cooperation is essential, andbuilding a good sense of trust and loyalty between partners is verymuch needed in the world today.All Rights Reserved © 2011 Team Building Activities HQ
