Team building games and ice breaker activities for adults can keep your team bonded throughout the year. Get started with this simple DIY team building exercise.

EXERCISE GOAL: Participants will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and those around them through ice breaker activities.

EXERCISE TAKE AWAYS
From this ice breaker activity, participants will accomplish the following:

  • Comfortably discuss personal thoughts and feelings.
  • Help each other increase their self concepts.
  • Summarize the experience they just had.
  • Verbalize positive personal attributes.
  • Have fun!

BREAK THE ICE!

  1. Invite your team to sit in a circle.
  2. Gather up a bunch of toys and put them in a box.
  3. Take the box of toys and dump it into the center of the circle of people.
  4. Have each group member choose a toy that they feel represents themselves.
  5. Take turns and describe the toy and its application to you.

Speaking of toys, what a great way to kick off a Toys for Tykes, Team Teddy Rescue Bear or Bike Build program!
