Five Original Christmas Team Building Ideas

Festive season is the perfect time to show your team how much you appreciate their hard work over the last year. There are many things you can do to boost your team’s festive spirit and we have handpicked some great alternatives to the standard office Christmas party celebrations. Bring a little bit of Christmas spirit into work and get your team bonding with these original and fun Christmas team building ideas. 

Dine & Cast 

This is Christmas dining with a difference. Whilst indulging on festive food and enjoying a mulled wine or two, you will be guided through creating your very own bespoke piece of jewellery using jewellers wax. 

Your design will then be cast in 925 sterling silver, gold or platinum, meticulously finished by hand and shipped back to you. What a Christmas gift that is! 

With little or no jewellery making experience and any level of creativity, you can cast rings, pendants, earrings, charms, cufflinks and even pet tags. 

This unique event is not only a platform to design and create high quality, bespoke jewellery pieces. It is also and more importantly, an opportunity to socialise, eat, drink, create and collaborate in an entirely different way.

Christmas Charity Bike Build

Christmas time is the time of giving and we have the perfect opportunity for you to do just that. Create and give the perfect present this Christmas and improve the life of a child at this special time of year. In this empowering activity, you’ll learn the bike building knowledge, create a build plan and take on fun challenges as a team to earn the bike parts needed to build your bike!

The Christmas charity bike build is a great way to improve your team’s communication and team cooperation with plenty of fun and laughter along the way. Plus at the end of your team building event, you will have created brand new, awesome bikes to be donated to your chosen charity.

Christmas Multi Sensory Dining 

Turn your team Christmas dinner into a multi sensory dining sensation. Inspired by Christmas festivities, the multi sensory dining will provide a carefully crafted experience with food, ambiance, art, lighting and music that will excite all of the senses. As you step into the room, you will feel as if you are entering a theatre. The use of sight, sound and smell creates a specific atmosphere that enhances the food being served and helps to create a unique experience. 

This Christmasised, immersive dining fun is perfect for those looking for an alternative to the turkey and tinsel this festive season. It will not only provide a unique bonding experience for your team, but will also be the talk of the office for years to come!

Christmas Pop Up Cinema 

There is nothing better during the Christmas season than gathering around to watch a festive film. Create your own Christmas pop up cinema with classic films, street food, live entertainment and heaps of festive fun. Snuggle up in warm blankets on big comfy bean bags while you sip on some mulled wine and enjoy your festive favourites, such as Home Alone, The Holiday, Elf or The Polar Express. And to create a unique and immersive experience, why not add some magical festive décor. 

Christmas pop up cinema is a memorable, fun event that will encourage bonding between teams as well as provide a unique festive season experience. 

Christmas Farm Adventure 

If you want to try something really different, why not whisk your team away on a farm adventure. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, get a good night’s sleep in a luxury bunk barn accommodation, and enjoy a home-reared tasty BBQ and mulled wine from the undercover outdoor area with firepits and bench seating.

Add some fun team building into the experience by really sampling farm life. Get your team competing in some farm based activities, such as sheep or pig herding, tractor driving and the farmer Olympics! 

The Christmas farm adventure is definitely a Christmas celebration with a difference. It will not only get your team bonding by trying something completely new, but will also provide fun memories for years to come.
