Team building activities don’t have to be boring or cringe worthy! There are tonnes of fun creative activities to choose from, and a lot of the indoor activities revolve around food and drink. Here are some of the best.
Most girls I know love to wind down after a busy week at work with a cocktail or two, so the chance to ‘sample’ some alcoholic concoctions in the name of team building will always be a winner. The fact that you also get to learn the art of mixology and get to create your very own cocktail (with the help of an expert) is even better! Corporate events company Out of the Office say that Cocktail Making is one of their most popular team building activities, of course as with all team building activities there is an element of competition involved. Let the ‘mix-off’ begin!
A cooking themed team building event that caters for both novice and experienced cooks. The Teambuilding Company run the event and has a mobile kitchen as well as venues around the UK. During the activity participants will learn how to prepare and cook food the way it’s meant to be done with the help of an expert chef, and at the end you will have the chance to taste each other’s courses. Get your Masterchef hat on!
Cupcakes have become the new fairy cakes don’t you know, and what better way to get in on the action by learning how to decorate your very own cupcakes. A professional cupcake maker (OK baker as they are known) will teach you how to decorate scrumptious cakes using coloured frosting, sugar strands, silver balls and all manner of lovely things. You will learn how to pipe and how to create the perfect cupcake, unlike the creations you used to make as a kid these are likely to be edible to. Out the Office also run this tasty event.
I’ve always wanted to learn how to make Sushi but have never been brave enough to attempt it myself. YourSushi offers Sushi making classes as corporate events and according to customer feedback it’s enjoyable for sushi lovers and sushi novices. During the activity you will learn how to make a wide variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian rolls as well as hand shaped sushi. You can taste as you go, as well as being armed with enough sushi to feed the five thousand when it’s over.
