Valentine’s Day is the sweetest holiday of the bunch.

The energy created between sweethearts is second to none, but creating energy within your team is equally as important. Here are some fantastic Valentine’s Day team building activities that also function as meeting energizers, and they work with onsite staff as well as staff you have out there in the virtual world. 

6 Valentine’s Day Team Building Ideas & Activities

1. Satisfy the Sweet Tooth

What’s Valentine’s Day team building without chocolate? Enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to be a chocolatier with our Curated Virtual Chocolate Tasting Experience we have the stuff that will make your tastebuds go crazy. 

Enjoy time with your coworkers and kick off your meeting with high spirits. If you want to get your hands chocolatey, learn new skills, and make your own truffles with our Chocolate Truffle Making Experience. 

They say that nine out of ten people like chocolate and the tenth is lying. But if chocolate really isn’t for your team, we have a plethora of tasty activities (wine tasting, anyone?) 

2. Indulge Your Team’s Tastebuds

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to enjoy fine flavors and experiences. Treat your team to a Culinary Cook-Along from the comfort of their homes. In this virtual team building activity, a professional chef will work alongside you and guide your team through the steps to create a dish from scratch. This fun meeting energizer will invigorate your team and their tastebuds. 

Or go on a culinary adventure with our Food Truck Challenge. A master chef will guide you through preparing and cooking your food, but then it’s up to teams to create a unique truck design and business plan. Bring your team together through friendly competition with results so delicious that it (almost) won’t matter who wins. 

3. Get Creative

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for teams to get crafty by sharing artistic abilities. With Sketch it Foward you can create personalized greeting cards to bring a smile to the faces of First responders, Healthcare heroes, Seniors, Veterans, Animal welfare advocates, and more. These cards are unique as they are handmade works of art created with the guidance of augmented reality. Encourage your team to make a difference by sharing their inner artist, regardless of their skill level. 

4. PPT of Me

This team building activity is a great way to energize your meetings.  Each meeting starts off each a 4-slideshow presentation from a different team member.  The slideshow will give the team members an opportunity to share a bit about who they are, what they do, and where they come from outside of work. 

Spread the love and celebrate Valentine’s Day with your team by getting to know each other better.  

5. Relax, Rejuvenate, and Refresh

With all that is going on around us, it is important to rejuvenate and take care of your mental wellness. Taking time to just sit back and relax can not only help to relieve stress but can improve memory, attention, and foster new ideas. A quick meditation session before a meeting could be just what your team needs to get the ideas and energy flowing. 

With Meditainment Online our guided meditations help your team to calm the mind, alleviate anxiety, and reduce stress. It’s as easy to do as following a relaxing story with your eyes closed. Take a moment to let your mind take you to amazing places and encourage your team to participate in this Valentine’s Day team building activity. 

6. Share a Laugh

Laughter relaxes the entire body, can help relieve tension, and serve as a great bonding experience. You can start off a meeting by running a fun poll, using visuals, or add a game to boost morale and start off on a positive note. With Swipe Face your team will find out who is the best poser in a playful selfie game where players compete to take the best picture in response to fun poses. Or run a quick game of Almost Anything Goes team trivia that can be tailored to any of your needs!

While you celebrate good food and loved ones, don’t forget to honor and celebrate the brave men and women who have died fighting for our country.
