‘Tis the season for charitable team building!

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?
