Did you figured out the solution to this week’s rebus? As we head into the holiday season, your team can make a difference in a child’s life through this charitable team building program: Toys for Tykes.
TeamBonding gathers your group into teams that compete with each other in fun activities and challenges. The result of their efforts is the creation of wagons, ﬁlled with presents for children in need in your community.
Through taking part in trivia and team games, your company will take the ﬁrst steps to putting a smile on the faces of underprivileged children in your community.
This isn’t just about donating toys!
The excitement begins with an icebreaker and progresses onto other activities, including Toy Trivia, a Blindfolded Puzzle Challenge and a fun, fast paced, secret ﬁnal challenge. Teams earn the points needed to earn the materials that ﬁll their girl-themed and boy-themed wagon of treasures.
As groups work together, they are also given a songbook that contains the lyrics to common knowledge tunes. They are tasked with picking one of the songs, and rewriting the lyrics to ﬁt their company, or your meeting theme.
Participants wrap the gift-ﬁlled wagons in cellophane and bows. They make note cards for each present, providing a personal message from the teams. Then, each team will perform their choreographed musical masterpiece to a wildly cheering audience.
Giving back to your community.
TeamBonding works to arrange the donation of these gifts to a local charity based on your preferences. We’ve had great success with organizations that provide social services and outreach, such as Boys and Girls Club, patients at a local children’s hospital and Toys for Tots.
TeamBonding requests a representative from the beneﬁting organization to speak to your team about their work and how the toys will be used at the conclusion of the program.
How will your team give back to the community?
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…)
Team building brings people together by encouraging collaboration and teamwork. Fun activities that help people see each other in a different light allow them to connect in a different setting. People on your team are asked to think about the implications of these activities at their workplace.
