If you have a soft spot for kids, ask about our Bears & Blankets option. In addition to the teddy bears, each team will also be tasked with making soft, warm knot blankets. These blankets will help promote an added sense of security for the children receiving them
The Team Teddy Rescue Bear program is a charitable and fun way to bond a team. Each team has puzzles to solve, codes to decipher, and secrets to unlock to acquire the resources that they need to build a series of custom teddy bears.
Participants divide into small work teams. Each group must complete a series of games/challenges to earn team points. In the final half hour, teams use their accumulated points to purchase all parts and accessories necessary to build a high-quality teddy bear. Teams will be assembling bears of their choice by carefully stuffing them to huggable perfection. Once these furry friends are created, they are dressed in a variety of fun outfits giving them an identity of their own. Turning these bears into a toy for a child can be incredibly rewarding, the greatest challenge is to let go of these cute little ones when you have put much effort into its creation.
This teddy bear charity challenge is fun and altruistic. It benefits your team and the children who receive the teddy bears and blankets. It’s a win-win team building event. The possibilities are endless, but the outcome is always the same – a group of happy children and a proud team of employees.
Rave Reviews From Clients
Kevin and the program were a huge success. It was exactly what we needed. He had a great energy and kept things moving along. We were thrilled to get a representative from Ronald McDonald house to accept the teddy bears. It really made the whole project perfect.
The girls had a wonderful time. They learned how to work together in a fun environment. Our team leader, Monica, worked very well with the team.
"Hi Sophie, I just wanted to thank you and let you know that my team and I had a blast last week. Ben was awesome, and thanks to the ice-breakers and games prior to the bear-building, the tired and low-energy team perked up and they all said they had a lot of fun. It was really nice of Sally from Mary’s to come and speak to us and also be able to load her car up with our bears afterwards!”
The Team Teddy program was amazing! We bonded as a team, learned better communication skills, celebrated our achievements, and had lots of FUN while giving back to the community. The facilitators kept us on track, celebrated our wins, and genuinely cared about our success. The team was raving about the experience and we've already recommended it to other teams. Well done!
Everyone was so excited to make the bears! We all had a lot of fun. The participants were even more excited to know that the bears were going to children that would be really appreciate them.
The best Team Building activity we've ever done. TeamBonding was flexible and helped us schedule an activity at the last minute. They were very cooperative and the facilitators were down-to-earth and personable. We did the Teddy Rescue Bear (Build a Teddy Bear) activity and it was lots of fun. I would definitely do it again or try one of the other activities. The best parts are the games, puzzles, and trivia you have to complete to gain experience for the specific activity.
"Thank you for facilitating our staff retreat. The staff really enjoyed building the bears. The team building activities gave everyone a chance to get to know and understand each other better, and we look forward to capitalizing on that with better communication and teamwork back at the facilities. "
As an administrative assistant, I usually make plans for events at locations that I do not attend. Therefore, I am very reliant on the confidence that I have in the people I deal with when making plans for administrators and staff. The contact that I had with TeamBonding from the beginning of planning our event to the execution of the day for our Administrators was excellent. All of my questions and concerns were addressed immediately and the day was a wonderful and inspiring event for our staff.
"Our team was excellent and scheduling a breeze! Would definitely recommend!"
"Team Teddy Rescue Bear - One of the best team-building activities I've ever participated in! Ben, our facilitator was superb; he kept things fast and exciting, and we all had a blast. To top it off, the bears we made went to a good cause. Have fun AND make a difference - what more could we ask for? We had booked the event quite last minute, but the team was extremely kind and accommodating. THANK YOU!"
"The event was definitely a hit with everyone. Thank you. We hope to get back to you by the end of the week with what we can do for next year."
"Always a great experience working with TeamBonding! Minimal effort on the corporate organizer. TeamBonding staff are always friendly and prepared to facilitate impactful sessions."
"I hope you're doing well. The team really enjoyed themselves and loved building the bears. They were so excited to go to Ronald McDonald House to drop them off. Thank you for everything."
"Thanks so much for reaching out. The team loved the event and Kevin was the best! Wishing you a great holiday season!
"Kara, Josh, and Jonathan were an amazing team for our GI TAU holiday event and everyone loved the Teddy Rescue Bear program. I look forward to future opportunities with TeamBonding"
"We keep playing phone tag! I just wanted to say thank you so much for coordinating the event we had. It was a hit, and Jonathan was amazing. I loved the Teddy Bear activity, and it meant, even more, when Paul came in to chat with our candidates that the bears they created were going to children with cancer. Thanks again for all your help and I hope you have a great weekend!"
