These activity ideas will help your group with their problem solving skills in a fun, physical way. Give your leadership a chance to learn new ways to promote teamwork. If you have a new group, use these team building activities to bind them into a unit rather than a group with no direction. Choose a challenging activity to stretch the physical boundaries of your team and help them realize they can do more.
Find a teambuilding activity to use inside or outdoors depending on your setting and change the idea to fit your needs.
