5 Fun Indoor Games You Can Play in Teams
One of the oldest, but yet it remains the best of all fun indoor games for children. A treasure hunt, as we all know is where teams have to find a treasure. There are clues given to you to reach the treasure and you need to reach there first.
If there is no one to arrange a treasure hunt for you, you can make two teams and arrange one for each other. Whoever finds the treasure first, is of course the winner.
Everyone has to answer these questions and the child that answers maximum questions is the winner. This is also one of the best indoor team games for schools and hobby classes. You can also let them use the Internet and whoever is the fastest, can be declared the winner.
Hide n Seek
Make a list of activities that the kids need to perform. For example, 'find a pair of blue socks' or 'a book with not more than 200 pages'. The kids have to get these things without letting know to rest participants. If the other players see it, they get 2 more activities to perform. Those who get the maximum number of items in the least time is the winner.
Share The Responsibilities
There are a lot of times when we need to leave the children alone at home. Our main focus is always that they have fun and don't get bored. Give them a list of responsibilities such as cooking (without gas and knives), washing the laundry, cleaning the rooms and even washing the car. One responsibility for each group.
The group that finishes first and does the job the best, wins the game. This is one of the best indoor games as it teaches responsibility, and focuses on team building at the same time.
Picture a Story
Give each team a famous story or fairy tale such a Cinderella, Pinocchio or even famous movies. They have to draw this story in the form of pictures and make their team members guess it right and guess it fast. This again, focuses on team building as there has to be a lot of understanding and patience. It also judges the creativity present in the children.
Another thing that you can do is enact the movie or fairy tale with actions and no words and your teammates will have to guess it. The team with maximum correct guesses wins!
These were some of the best indoor games for team building and for some fun time! If you really like these, you can also suggest playing some of these indoor team games to your teacher and you can play them in school one day.
