The Perfect Holiday Team BUILDING Event!

We designed this fully-facilitated event to bring out your team’s resourcefulness and creativity. By now, we all know that gamification makes nearly any activity irresistible, and this one’s no exception. 

Once your group is divided into small teams, each is challenged to design and build an absolute showstopper of a house. We provide all the edible construction materials you need, from gingerbread pieces and icing to a variety of candy, sprinkles and other festive (and delicious) decorations. Holiday trivia and other mental challenges earn each team points along the way, which they can exchange for additional building supplies.  

Teams have one hour to carefully construct their masterpieces before presenting them to our panel of judges. The judging itself is always a highlight of the event, and our legendary facilitators always keep the competition lighthearted. They even subject each property to the stress test of a simulated earthquake.

Beyond the obvious fun factor, this event gives people the chance to work together in new ways. On-the-fly collaboration is a great skill for any team, helping people learn to loosen up, open their minds and expect the unexpected. It makes a memorable addition to any holiday season.
