Team games: Puzzle Mixer

lollyscrambleSAs young people arrive, give them each the piece to a kid’s jigsaw puzzle (min. 10 pieces, max. 25). Have the same number of puzzles as you want teams (e.g. three). If you have extra puzzle pieces left over, place them back into the correct puzzle frames. When it’s time to form teams, lay out the puzzle frames around the room. Have students locate the correct puzzles to which their pieces belong. You can declare the first group to completely put a puzzle together as the winners and/or just use the groups at each puzzle for your next team activity.
