This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
lots of M&Ms or Skittles
Have all participants choose a partner. Tell them to choose someone about their own size if possible.
Once all partners are chosen, tell them that we are having an arm wrestling contest on the floor.

Have each pair lie down facing each other and lock fingers of their left hands on the ground, then grasp right hands in the air with their elbows on the ground so they can arm wrestle.

Place a pile of about 20 candies by each pair, or in a baggie if you want.
Tell everyone that when someone wins a match, they get 2 candies.
Then, tell everyone to start wrestling when they are ready.

If partners are close in strength, they may work very hard for each candy. If one is overpowering, he will easily win each time, but he will still have to work for it.
Pairs that think about it may just take turns winning and putting up no fight so they split the candy with no effort.

Reflect at the end to see if anyone worked as a team rather than against each other.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
