Teaching Your Child Teamwork

As Casey Rose and the Joybug know, everyone needs to learn teamwork, and childhood is the best time to start. Many activities have been devised to teach children teamwork and make it fun in the process. These activities are easily accessible online for free. One good source is http://ethemes.missouri.edu/themes/1045. In general, these team building activities fall into these categories.  daily_joytip_16

  • Games for children, as individuals or in groups are a great way to share the joy together. They highlight the benefits of teamwork through play, and demonstrate that in order to succeed, you must work together.
  • Arts and crafts projects is the Joybug’s favorite category. These activities encourage children to use their artistic skills as a team, in order to produce items like T-shirts, pictograms, quilts, and other things that require cooperative efforts.
  • Literary projects. Creating stories, poems, posters and other items through group effort is used to teach children how to cooperate with each other in achieving creative results.
  • Problem-solving exercises. This type of activity involves getting children to create and solve problems, and develop critical thinking. Coming up with options and solutions through teamwork is an important part of activities in this category.

While most team building activities for children are done in school, many of these can be used at home, or in the neighborhood to foster cooperation among children, and reinforce what they learn in the classroom.

The Benefits of Music for Small Children

Whether you know it or not, you’ve already introduced a child to music if you’ve ever sung a lullaby to a baby. Children are naturals when it comes to music, and feeding this instinct can give your child many advantages later in life. Our mission at Joy Kids Universe is to spread ripples of joy all over the world. Music can help implement this principle.


  • Music improves a child’s mind. In becoming familiar with beats and rhythm, the child learns to recognize patterns and learn mathematical skills.
  • Music improves the body. Learning music with instruments, like the guitar or drums, helps develop a child’s motor skills.
  • Music improves social skills. Playing an instrument as part of a group teaches a child cooperation and teamwork. The need to blend in and produce a harmonious result becomes part of a child’s upbringing.
  • Music improves a child’s behavior. The discipline that music demands helps a child develop patience. Music makes the child realize that only constant practice makes perfect.
  • Music improves a child’s self-confidence. Learning to give and take criticism, from teachers and peers, is one of the invaluable traits a child learns from music.
  • Music improves a child’s world view. Becoming familiar with the music and instruments of other cultures helps the child learn about the world and different peoples.

The Joybug sincerely LOVES to see all of the world’s children living and growing through life’s experiences in a carefree and harmonious way each and every day. Music inspires different cultures to share common ground and to create joy, which always leads to joyful moments and memories.
