Minefield -- Duct Tape Teambuilding Game - YouTube This would be a great game at the beginning of the year. It would help kids work together as teams and build trust. Its also great for focus, when everyone is talking, you have to listen for your partner.
This would be a very fun activity the first week of school! Teacher says a statement (ex. Switch sides if you like hot dogs more than pizza.) and the students either stay or move. The kids could also talk about why they did/didn't move. Fun!!! #backtoschool
Beach Ball Race- kids work together to hold beach ball between their backs for the first leg of the race, then their sides, then elbows. The field Day Challenge is halfway down on web site & includes water relay, tricycle race, and tug-of-war. Check it out!
Caterpillar Race....Have your kids form teams (At least two) and form a straight line. In between each player is a balloon and they must get to the finish line without dropping their balloon. They can only keep their balloons from dropping by using their chest and the other players back. If a balloon drops, then the team must stop and pick it back up.
