This and other activities mentioned below come from Kris Bordessa, who says, "I am a freelance writer specializing in fun activities for families. In my professional life, I've discovered some amazing places to visit, created numerous art projects utilizing everyday objects and written about some great people. When I'm not writing, I encourage kids to work cooperatively and creatively as a team leader for two fabulous Destination Imagination teams, as a 4-H leader and last but not least, as a mom. My book, Team Challenges: 170+ Group Activities to Build Cooperation, Communication and Creativity , will be published by Zephyr Press in November, 2005.

Here are some samples:
Elevate an apple -- a variation on the "tower" game that looks like it would be more fun and not quite as dependent on engineering skills.
Guess the Google -- look at a montage of images and then guess the search term that produced it. To create the montage in the first place, click here (WARNING! Both of these activities are very addictive). (Answer to the montage above: innovation is the google search term.)
Conversation starters -- Example: Would you rather dive from a high cliff into the ocean or give a book report in front of 500 kids? While intended for families, they could probably be used in other settings.
