Another activity to try with your group is some form of art-making. A few examples are a team art-making project based on a theme such as collage, painting self-portraits with geometric cut-outs, a writing session, focusing on creative activities enjoyed by team members, etc.
Let's take the team (or individual) collage project as an example...the theme can be "what are you passionate about?" "what floats your boat?" or any theme someone suggests. You can work on the collage project as a team or on an individual basis, or both. After the art project is finished - talk about it.
As an artist, I believe everyone is creative and that creativity is fundamental to being human. Every member of your team has some type of creative activity they enjoy, whether it's writing, crafts, gardening, beading, woodworking, playing an instrument, cooking, etc. Have team members exhibit their creative pursuit by a show and tell. For example, if someone plays an instrument or sings, encourage that person to play or sing a piece for the group on an individual or as a duet. Does someone like painting as a creative pursuit - have that person bring in paintings, etc. Have a laughter session where everyone just laughs for 10 or more minutes. You will learn more about each other and yourself while have fun doing it.
Engaging in the creative process touches the soul and spirit, and releases dopamine. I hope these suggestions help. ~marti hand
