Brand New Virtual Team Building Activity: Holiday Hijinks

Virtual Holiday Hijinks

There’s no doubt about it: 2020 has been a challenging year for individuals and businesses around the world.  

But there’s some light at the end of the tunnel that gives everyone a little something to look forward to: the most wonderful time of the year is right around the corner.  

And in that spirit, we’re launching our brand-new virtual team building activity, Holiday Hijinks, so that you and your team can celebrate the holiday season together – whether in-person or remotely. 

With Holiday Hijinks, you’ll get to blow off some steam and have a whole lot of laughs as your team breaks out into groups and races against the clock, competing to complete a list of holiday-themed cerebral, physical, and skill-based challenges, including:  

  • Cookie Conundrum – Luke made 42 holiday cookies. He brought half of them to his office. He ate one third of the cookies that were left. Then he gave 8 cookies to his neighbor. He left the rest of the cookies out for Santa. How many cookies did Santa get? 
  • Elf Yourself – Each team member needs to create the most unique gift you can using only the items available to you. Snap a photo of everyone showcasing their gifts. 
  • Junk Yard Jingle – Record a 5-second video of a teammate creating the beat to a holiday song using objects found around your house or office. Be sure to practice getting your notes right as the instrumental version has to be in tune! 

Your team will need to work collaboratively, communicate effectively, and think creatively if they want to be crowned the Holiday Hijinks Champions.  

But be mindful! Each challenge is worth a different number of points based on its level of difficulty which means each team will have to keep a close eye on the live leaderboard and complete challenges strategically if they want to stay one step ahead of the competition.  

Best of all, for a limited time, all of our virtually hosted team building activities are available at a reduced rate, so book yours today!
