3. Team Building Origami Challenge
In this activity, each team competes to make folded paper in a unique form. This is a great way for teams to learn the value of encouraging other members and sharing the things they know. Origami is also taught at Japanese schools to teach the importance f time management, waiting all the way to the end, using resources skillfully and turning simple things into meaningful treasures. This is a team challenge so they have to make the figures as a team.
