This activity would be good to build and focus on leadership. As Therapeutic Recreation majors, it is important to have leadership skills and this is a fun and easy way to incorporate leadership into a game. It would be fun to play even just as an ice breaker.
Team Building Task-The Cup Challenge - take a rubber band and tie 6 strings to it (though I think 5 would work if you want smaller groups). Participants must use only the strings to move 6 cups into a pyramid formation. You can make this a competition between the groups or give them harder cup moving tasks.
