Problem solving games and activities are an excellent way to break the ice and install a fun element into your presentation and provide a great method to observe peoples performance when it comes to quick thinking, passage of information and team work.
You can use the following 3 fun problem solving games in any situation and make them last for a duration of your choice, all you require are a few items from around the office or home.
This is the first of our problem solving offerings and an excellent activity to include some creativity within your group. The activity involves a lot of communication, team work and attention to detail with some very positive outcomes. This exercise as with most requires little equipment however does require a bit of planning prior to your session to ensure the activity is well structured and goes to plan!
Mind block is a problem solving game that requires a good memory and the powers of observation in order to succeed. Using Lego blocks the guests must replicate a pre-built lego design after only a short viewing period, this sounds simple but you will be suprised at the results. Again this game can be used for all training events and you just need to source some lego blocks from around the home or school.
