Teamwork is an important part of the family dynamic. Family members often count on each other to get through the day-to-day demands of life. Each person provides a different skillset or outlook to the family entity that strengthens the whole.
But in today’s fast-paced and technology driven world, the team focus can become fragmented. Busy schedules, personal devices, and on-demand technology platforms often challenge the team-based dynamic. Such changes often happen slowly without even being noticed.
The good news?
You can do something about it and reinforce the fun and value of working as a team. A family escape room activity could be one of many activities to strengthen the team bonds. Escape rooms inherently require a team-based effort to be successful. Escape room participants working as individuals will not succeed. You can even assign ‘roles’ to each family member to provide some structure.
Team Leaders: Organize the effort and provide group direction
Analysts: Collect the information and clues to solve the challenges
Scouts: Push forward and search for new and missed clues
Timer: Keep the team moving and aware of the time available
An escape room adventure can be a great event to remind family members of the fun they can have together. Nothing beats shared fun with family. You’ve accomplished something great when you successfully complete an escape room challenge together. You may even start a new escape room tradition!
