If you’re planning an event, conference, or corporate get-together and are looking for ways to make it even more memorable, you might want to consider adding a team building activity into your day plan. Whether you’ve got a lot of time or only a little bit, it can provide an added dimension of fun – and employee engagement benefits – to any type event. Here are five great options:

  1. Hardware Harmony – Break up your event day with a musical jam session with a Hardware Harmony team building activity. Your group will have to find their rhythm as they complete music-themed challenges. For each challenge they complete, they’ll earn household items and hardware which they will end up using as instruments in a massive performance. And best of all, your group will get to donate their “instruments” to a New York-based charity which will use them as supplies and tools to assist those in need of affordable housing.
  2. Game Show ExtravaganzaIf you’ve ever watched a television game show and wondered how it felt to be a contestant, we’ve got just the thing to satisfy your curiosity! With Game Show Extravaganza, your team can play in their very own game-show style competition, tackling photo and trivia challenges covering everything from pop culture to geography, politics, history, and more. This activity is a great way to re-energize your group during a long day of meetings.
  3. Team Pursuit You can transform any event venue into a fun and high-energy team building event with Team Pursuit, an app-based activity that challenges your group to learn new things about one another, discover their hidden talent, and learn to rely on each other. In this activity, your group will split into teams and tackle a wide array of mental, physical, skill, and mystery challenges as they compete to be named the winners.
  4. Charity Bike Buildathon – Doing good deeds has been proven to make people happier. That’s why there aren’t many better ways to spend time with colleagues than by getting together to do something nice for somebody else with a philanthropic team building activity. With Charity Bike Buildathon, your team will get together to build and decorate bikes which will be donated to a children’s charity in the Big Apple. And, in the process, they’ll also have the opportunity to gain valuable business skills as they develop and present an ad campaign for their bicycle to the rest of the team.
  5. Minute to Win ItIf you’re looking for a way to boost your team’s energy levels and let them blow off steam during a packed event day – while enhancing their collaboration at the same time – you’ll love Minute to Win It. In this fast-paced team building activity based on the popular TV show, your group will need to tackle a series of 60-second challenges, gaining points for each one they complete correctly. At the end of the activity, one team will be crowned champions.
