Teambuilding Game: Jump Rope Record
Team of Dancing Elves

Teamwork Activity: M&M Arm Wrestle, a teambuilding game to teach the power of win-win consciousness

This is a "no-prop" teamwork activity, meaning all you need to lead this are participants.  People pair up and then assume the "arm wrestling" position. 

Here's what you tell the group:  "Your goal is to earn as many points as possible.  You earn a point when the back of your partner's hand touches the ground."  I'll demonstrate how this works and then I'll say "Ready, set go!" 

Watch the video to see what happens next 99.9% of the time.

We used this activity last week with a youth group of nearly 60 students. We used it to set up the discussion "What is a win/win for you (as students) and us (as a youth group)?" The students then came up with a list and created their own rules for our group.
