A great activity for teams of all ages is the beach ball kudos activity. This is a very powerful activity that helps team members understand how important they are to each other.
Have everyone get in a circle. Take a beach ball and as the leader start this activity off by throwing the ball to someone in the circle and say something positive to them, about them.
✦ EXAMPLE: George I am throwing you the ball be cause you are always smiling, George then takes the ball and throws to someone else. Go around the room until everyone has had something kind said about them.
✦ TIP: I would be clear with participants that the purpose of this activity is to set a nice and positive atmosphere for our group and that we need everyone’s participation to say kind things.
