Team building games teach children the importance of co-operation, tolerance, concentration, the technique of working in a team by keeping aside their personal differences, being punctual and disciplined, obeying the orders of seniors, acquiring leadership skills, and sacrificing personal interests when the team is struggling to win.
When children grow up and enter the corporate or professional world, they are definitely expected to indulge in teamwork. All the lessons and qualities gained in these games will come handy in tackling difficult and challenging situations with self-confidence.
Before you play this game, tie a ribbon at the center of the rope, which is common to both the teams. A line marked which is not to be crossed by both the teams and the ribbon has to be exactly over the line just before starting the game.
Once the referee blows the whistle, both the team members begin pulling the rope and the team which crosses the marked line will be the loser. This game needs planning, positive thinking, strength, proper management, and co-operation.
The team which reaches that place first, obviously wins the game and ultimately, the prize for the competition, too. This game requires information interpreting skills, presence of mind, concentration, and understanding. Each participant should be able to reciprocate well with the others.
The team which makes the more number of correct words in the allotted time, wins the competition. This game will help to improve the language skills and the thinking abilities of children.
This helps them understand the basic concepts in Mathematics and will prove useful when these children appear for competitive exams later on.
As concentration and hard work are the essential keys to succeed in any field, these games will prove to be very useful in all aspects of life.
Not only are team games great fun for children, they teach important values as well. You may make a few suggestions so that they get started, but you should give your child the freedom to choose his or her favorite game.
