Team Building Activities

Team building activities For Kids

Encouraging children to develop their communication, emotional and social skills.

Working together as a team is often the most efficient way of overcoming obstacles in life. This is just as true for adults as it is for kids. But learning how to work together with your peers is a skill best learned early on in life. The younger children start learning certain skills, the more likely they are to use it later in life.

Teamwork will teach children to work cooperatively towards a common goal. It will encourage children to develop their communicative, emotional and social skills.

 

Communication

During team building activities, children have the chance to communicate with each other. To succeed in any type of challenge or task in life you have to learn how to not only speak, but to listen. Without listening it is impossible to have a dialogue with others. This way, instructions and ideas can easily go lost. Once kids have learned how to listen, they can begin to learn how to speak. The way in which people speak with others demonstrates their level of understanding and respect. This is a crucial part of working together as a team.

Our TreeTop challenge at ThunderBird Park is one of our most popular adventure activities. It is a great team building adventure which teaches children how to communicate. Work together as a team to get through the course among the treetops of Tamborine Mountain. We even have a challenge for the very youngest ones - TreeTop Challenge Juniors.

Cooperation and Comradery

We all know the saying "there is no 'I' in team". Taking turns and waiting on one another are excellent ways of teaching children cooperation. Being part of a team offers a sense of belonging and comradery for children and adults alike. Team building can also create a great support system for kids. It teaches them that everyone plays a part in the team, even though each's part might look different.
