Fall Team Building Ideas
The weather is changing and so are the leaves! Fall officially starts on September 23rd. The beginning of the season means festive activities and crisper air. With our headquarters located in Florida, our corporate office does not get to appreciate the cooler temps. However, we still enjoy so much of what fall has to offer. From apple picking to pumpkin spice lattes, there are so many reasons to grab some boots and a scarf to head out to enjoy some of the best aspects of fall. This season is also a great time for your group to come together for team building activities. While the thought of snuggling up under a warm blanket and sipping hot cider sounds appealing, it is also important to build a strong bond with coworkers. As the #1 event organizer, Best Corporate Events can facilitate a team building event for any sized group. To get the most out of what fall has to offer, these events are fun, collaborative choices.
BEST Fall Programs
The cooler weather calls for a warm, hearty bowl of chili. Chili Cook-Off gives teams the opportunity to do just that while incorporating fun icebreakers and creative skills. A focus on teamwork and organization is key in this event. Each team designated Head chefs are at the start of the event to oversee the numerous tasks that occur simultaneously. Culinary ingenuity is put to work as each team develops, preps, and cooks their own chili recipe.
For those whose skills are focused more on the arts, other duties include decorating their head chef’s apron and creating a presentation or jingle to showcase the distinct qualities of their team. Knowledge is put to the test as participants earn points for their team using Apple iPads® which deliver text, audio and video clues, chili trivia, and exciting gaming challenges. All your memories of this delicious event will be captured with photos and video of your teams in action. When the judging begins, scorecards will be utilized to award points based on creativity, presentation, and taste. One team will emerge triumphant as the reigning Chili Cook-Off Champions!
Fall also brings another season- football! Chocolate Architect helps your group bond as they design and build various themed structures, including a stadium, utilizing candies and chocolate delicacies. Participants earn points for their team using Apple iPads® which deliver text, audio and video clues, chocolate trivia and exciting gaming challenges. Earned points are used to purchase a chocolate construction kit and special materials packages. Once structures are completed, final touches are added in the form of various colorful confectionaries. All your memories of this delicious event are captured with photos and video of your teams in action. To show off their team spirit, each team’s creative interpretation will be displayed for the entire group to enjoy.
Bears and Blankets
Warm your heart with a charity event program to donate to local kids in need. During Bears and Blankets, teams will stuff and decorate teddy bears, then swaddle them in a warm soft blanket. During the event, as teams earn points they will be choosing their bears and carefully stuffing them to huggable perfection. Bear-size t-shirts are skillfully designed and decorated by the artistic members of your group. Once the furry friends are created, they are dressed in their custom shirt for an identity all their own. The swaddling blankets help promote an added sense of security for the children receiving them. All finished items are then delivered to crisis centers and law enforcement agencies to distribute them to children who have experienced trauma. Best of all, a proud team of employees is uplifted knowing they helped children to know someone cares.
We Care for Schools
Fall signals the beginning of the school year. We Care for Schools benefits local schools in dire need of supplies for the classroom and beyond. Teams participate in iPad activities, and photo and video challenges while assisting in filling bins with supplies for local classrooms in need. Common school items like pencils, paper, glue sticks, and first aid kits are frequently in short supply due to how quickly they deplete. A student who is well-equipped is a student who is more productive and focused. Unfortunately, creative programs in the classroom like art are the first impacted by budget cuts. Supplementing a supply of items like colored pencils, paintbrushes, and sketch pads are vital for fostering a creative outlet for students. This program is a great way to support the local teachers and administration so that they can focus on their valuable work of molding young minds.
Fall has the trees bursting with color to signify change. Be sure your team is bursting with a sense of synergy with one of our team building activities.
