Sure, Halloween is for trick-or-treating and dressing your kids up in cute costumes, but we think the adults deserve a treat too! It’s National Pumpkin Day and we’re bringing you three creative ways to incorporate pumpkins into your next grown-up party!
Crafting this is very similar to crafting a jack-o-lantern – the only difference is that one is filled with wine! Buy a box/bag of your favorite wine and a pumpkin that’s large enough to fit the wine in. Cut the top off of your pumpkin and clean out the seeds and mushy insides. Carve a hole that’s big enough for the wine spout and push the spout through. Et voila – you now have a pumpkin keg. If you’re feeling especially creative, take some time to paint the pumpkin with some sort of indication as to what’s inside! Enjoy your hallo-wine!
Fill up a tub, or cauldron if you’re feeling especially witchy, with water and plenty of mini pumpkins. Set a timer for each player and have them hold their hands behind their backs while they bob for pumpkins. The player who gets the most pumpkins wins!

At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
We have an exciting year of trade shows lined up! From ice sculpting demonstrations to battling with bows & arrows, our team is ready to bring the fun to these events across the country. Will you be in attendance at any of these shows?! If so, be sure to swing by our booth and say hello!
When it’s summer time, head outside to enjoy the rays and blue skies. DYI (Do it yourself) outdoor team building is a great way to learn new activities while surrounded by fun company and building strong bonds.
Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork. The more collaboration your projects require the more assertive and intentional your communication should be. Every member of the team needs to take the initiative to communicate. When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively in order to work effectively. (more…)
