It’s the end of the year 2018, and we are all happy to be hosting and attending Christmas parties. Being an attendee is easy, you only have to show up, have some fun and leave the place. Ask the party planners how they feel. They pour their souls into the event and hope for the best results.
Corporate parties have different gathering purposes. These events answer for the motivation of the workers, planning future strategic steps, and creating a better bond within team members. In this article, we will discuss several activities that go well with team-building purposes for this Christmas party.
Take the Party Outside
Christmas is all about sharing the love and gifts. It’s also associated with a lot of snow, ice and cold weather. So what’s the point in spending your Christmas experience in the walls of the office or a restaurant/bar? It would be a great idea to take the party outside and try different things for once.
- Pop events advise renting a rink.
Christmas brings up the desire to participate in Winter sports. Luckily, almost every town and city provide people with rinks. You can take your team to the rink for a friendly game of curling. Curling is a really nice and friendly team-building activity for those who want to participate in friendly sportsmanship. You could hire a professional trainer to go through the rules and basics.
If curling is not enough or desired, you can take your teammates to the rink for skating on the ice. It’s an elegant activity that creates a bonding experience between those who can’t skate and those who know how to. Let your workers help each other and see how they build friendships.
- Take your workers for sledding
If your area is full of snow and little hills, search no further, you have your sledding place. Sledding is correlated with childhood memories, and even the toughest attendees can crack their cold skin and engage in the activity.
Inform your attendees beforehand about the activity you planned for them. Tell them to get their sleds (if they have one), warm clothes and comfortable shoes. If you plan to organize the equipment yourself, it would be smart to hire sleds and other essentials.
Plan Unusual and Adventurous Activities
- Ride a reindeer.
Your workers might be experienced in riding a mechanical bull. But what if you offer them riding a reindeer? They will be amazed and think it’s something unusual. But as long as it matches the holiday spirit, why not?
Hire a mechanical reindeer or inflatable Rudolph reindeer and plan fun games with your attendees.
- Hire Santa and Rudolph for photo opportunities
And finally, your attendees would love to leave the party full of memories and photos to remember this day after some time. Hire a Santa that comes with Rudolph the reindeer. Give your guests an opportunity to sneak a pic with Santa.
Everyone defines fun and adventurous activities in a different way, but at the end of the day, everyone loves Christmas-themed activities. Your guests will enjoy the party and hope for more to come for next year.
