This activity was a fun, active activity. It takes your group on a trip around the world (in a manner of speaking). Begin by dividing your group into even teams. At each location they are given a challenge (Minute To Win It style) to complete before moving on.
We had a similar party for Maddy and her friends at the end of the school year. We adapted the challenges a bit to fit teams made up of only two people.
The photos are a combination of both the YM/YW Activity and the End of School Year Party.
