Useful for developing prosocial behaviors and caring communication, for breaking barriers or tightening work teams; for conflict resolution, or for fostering initiative and problem solving skills.
Half of the activities require no equipment at all. All the rest use equipment that can be easily made from everyday recycled materials (ie. paper towel rolls, Gatorade bottles, etc.) OR easily, inexpensively obtained from hardware, craft, or party stores (ie. duct tape, tarps, balloons, clothesline, string, macrame rings, etc.). In fact, the DVD and leadership CDROM encourages you to create your own variations of both the activities and the equipment .
The set includes one DVD with all of the activities and the follow-up resources so each game can be instantly accessed by chapter. The second CDROM disc contains all of the activity rules and descriptions, leadership and processing hints, and variations that can be easily downloaded for your staff manuals.
