Does your corporate workplace need a morale boost? If so, it’s important to create frequent opportunities for bonding at work. After all, you and your coworkers see a lot of each other!
Luckily, it doesn’t take much problem solving to find a team building exercise that each team member will love. The upcoming months are packed with festive holidays and social opportunities, making it the perfect time to implement team-bonding activities that your corporate cohorts will enjoy!
Engage in Seasonal Arts and Crafts
Who doesn’t enjoy team building art activities? Getting creative is a great way to learn more about your work buddies and facilitate team bonding over common interests or shared skills. Many projects can fit into the category of “Arts and Crafts;” however, the holiday season offers the most inspiration out of any time of the year.
Team building event ideas can include wreath making, pumpkin carving, art classes, ornament adorning, or even gift wrapping! An art-based team building activity is sure to be a blast, no matter what you and your colleagues choose to create. You may even leave the meet-up with new home decorations, a piece of art, or an extra special gift for a loved one!
Try a Cooking Class
Spiff up your team’s cooking skills this holiday season! After all, the universal theme for many wintery occasions is celebration, typically emphasized by special meals. Whichever holidays you celebrate, all of your coworkers can surely relate to great meals surrounded by even greater people!
Sign your work crew up for a local seasonal cooking class. Your coworkers will have the opportunity to learn new skills, deepen friendships, and take home treats!
Try setting up an at-home or in-office operation if you’re unable to find a cooking class that can accommodate a large group! To keep it sweet and simple, consider whipping up baked treats like holiday cookies or cakes.
Join a Painting with a Twist Team Building Event
Painting with a Twist team building events are the perfect option for an arts and crafts team building activity.

Get Outside and Into the Holiday Spirit
If you’ve only engaged with your officemates indoors, it’s time to venture into the great outdoors! Pick a team building activity where you and your coworkers can grab some fresh air, get active, and see new sights. The holiday season and its accompanying weather inspires so many outdoor activities. Haunting hayrides, ice skating, caroling, and apple picking are just a few options at your disposal.
