This free teambuilding game is useful for identifying how teams interact as well as providing an opportunity for teams to ‘bond’ and work together closely on a fun and challenging activity.
Training course contents:
A set of instructions for the team building game, ‘Picture This’ can be downloaded from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.
Tools – a digital camera, a lead to plug camera into a laptop, projector, relevant props i.e. clothing or items relevant to the chosen topic.
Participants are told that they need to create a picture that will be used for the front page of a local paper, magazine, company brochure etc.
This picture will represent a topic of the trainers choosing i.e. ‘Teamwork!’, ‘Achievement’, ‘Challenge’ etc. (you could even choose a themed event i.e. ‘Cowboys & Indians’, ‘Cops & Robbers’, ‘Famous People’ etc.)
The participant’s task is to create a photograph using all the members of the team. This photo should best represent the chosen topic and look as professional as possible. The only two rules are that everyone should be in the picture and all should be involved in the process.
There is also a given time limit.
If you want to make things competitive, you could pit two teams against each other with the best picture winning.
Once the picture/s has been taken, it should be projected onto the screen whilst the review takes place.
Review – have the team rate their effectiveness on a 1-10 scale (1 meaning you didn’t work well together, 10 meaning you were extraordinary).
They should then comment on their ratings.
- How did they communicate?
- Were there any leaders throughout the activity?
- Did everyone get a chance to be involved?
- Were any opinions overlooked?
- What difficulties did they face?
- What frustrations, if any, were there?
- How did they feel throughout the activity?
- What worked?
- What didn’t work?
- How happy are they with the final picture?
- What would they do differently next time?
This team building game helps to build team relationships, involve everyone and build a sense of teamwork. This task also allows participants to demonstrate a creative side that might not usually be allowed to shine.
This Team Building Game works well with our Team Building Training Materials.
