Hello, Patricia!

This is an excellent collection! May I add my website to your list of resources? The site is, and it is an online resource for youth leaders who are looking for exercises to build group identity and team spirit.

Please feel free to stop by! We're young yet---only about a dozen activities---but we've been adding one or two a week.

Thank you, and happy teaching!
