Get started with this simple DIY team building exercise.

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

EXERCISE TAKE AWAYS:
From this event, participants will:

  • Comfortably discuss personal thoughts and feelings;
  • Help others to increase their self concept;
  • Summarize the experience they just had;
  • Verbalize positive personal attributes; and,
  • Have fun!

BREAK THE ICE!

  1. Gather up a bunch of toys and put them in a box.
  2. Take the box of toys and dump it into the center of the circle of people.
  3. Have each group member choose a toy that they feel represents themselves.
  4. 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!
