Penn State Extension’s Better Kid Care lists several reasons teambuilding with children is important:

Conducting team building activities with children can help children work on developing the following skills:

  • Problem solving
  • Communication
  • Cooperation
  • Listening
  • Self-esteem
  • Idea exchange
  • Working with others and different groups
  • Leadership
  • Creative thinking

The link above also has several team building activities for children.

And to wrap up, why not read a picture book that demonstrates teamwork?
