Group Bonding Activities for Kids

Kids are social creatures!

Creatas/ThinkStock

The power of teamwork and the rewards of cooperation and compromise can help kids develop into healthy adults. The challenge for parents is in finding engaging ways for kids to become part of a group dynamic while still being able to explore their individual contributions in positive ways. Kids love to play, but no child wants to be the last one chosen for a game every time. Mixing up the options and making group activities part of a rich family experience, with and without parent participation, is an effective way to help kids learn to respect others and value themselves.
