3 quick and easy teambuilding activities from Yarnfield Park Training and Conference Centre
Great teamwork is often paramount to running a successful organisation. It improves morale, creates trust and can even develop problem-solving skills. Yarnfield Park Training and Conference Centre have this great quick guide of some of their favourite activities - all of which require little or no equipment, very cost effective and a great way to include everyone.
One Lie, Two Truths!
This activity requires team members to write down three interesting facts about themselves, and then take it in turns to read them out to the group. However, one of these "facts" must be a lie. The rest of the team must decide between them what statement is an untruth. A competitive edge can be added by dividing larger groups into two teams and awarding points when the correct answer is given.
Marshmallow Spaghetti Tower
Give each team 20 sticks of uncooked spaghetti, a roll of masking tape, string and 1 marshmallow. Each team has to try and build the tallest tower (but its important that the marshmallow sits at the top of the tower!)
Yin and Yang
This game will need paper, sticky tape and pens. Before the game begins, the leader will need to have several 'pairs' ready. For example, Yin and Yang, Male and Female, Night and Day. One of each pair is written down on separate pieces of paper.
Next, one piece of paper is stuck to the back of each player (make sure they don't see it!). Each player must move around the room asking other players simple yes or no questions. Once they have figured out who or what they are, the next step is to find their partner. The first pair to sit down together wins!
