Fun Team Building Activities to Get People Working Together

Is there a dark cloud brewing over your team workers? Has productivity taken a dive along with staff morale? Maybe working from home has created feelings of isolation and being left out of the loop. If so, it's time for a bit of fun with an outing or an entertaining team-building exercise. 

Now that you have an idea about bringing the energy and productivity back to your office or your remote workers, it's time to learn more about how a team event can inject some life and enthusiasm back into an ailing workforce. And what better way is there to do it than with a terrarium workshop? 

What Are Team Events? 

Team events refer to any activity where work colleagues come together, physically or virtually, to perform a task together or as part of a team. They can can have different goals; you can use them to educate, inform, or entertain and give hard-working employees a chance to blow off steam and have some fun. 

Why are Team Events an Important Business Strategy? 

Team building exercises give your employees a chance to discover each other as people rather than employees. 

Your employees are your most important asset, and you need to look after them. Teams that have low morale and high stress will not perform at their best. In the hectic day-to-day of the average workplace, it can be difficult to forge relationships at personal levels that help people work better together. 

Regardless of the size of your company, a team event creates an environment where colleagues can let their personalities shine. They will get to know each other a little better and develop stronger relationships. 

Team members that know and respect each other will have improved interactions at work. When everyone is getting along, productivity often improves as well. 

Team Event Idea - Create A Terrarium 

Showing up to work every day and performing the same duties over and over can sap even the most enthusiastic worker's spirit. 

Some time off to give employees an opportunity to tap into their creative spirit and have some fun will be a refreshing change of pace. 

A team-building event like terrarium construction using vermiculite, soil, moss, air plants, and decorative items is entirely different from the average workday and provides the perfect refresh. The finished product is also something the participants can keep. They can use the terrarium to bring some nature into their home office or the workplace. 

How to Hold a Terrarium Making Workshop for Team Building 

You can host a terrarium workshop in person, where each participant gets to express their creativity using the materials provided. When everyone has the same kit, it’s likely to develop into a friendly competition to see who can create the most unique design.

The pandemic has made physically getting together for a terrarium workshop more challenging, but that doesn't mean your online workers need to miss out. You can still use terrarium workshops to build stronger teams; you just need to go virtual. 

With more people working from home than ever before, primarily out of necessity, online virtual events have taken over as a fantastic alternative for keeping teams connected and bonding at a personal level. 

Each team member will receive by courier or post their very own terrarium kit. The kits contain everything for building a functional terrarium, including glass containers, air plants, and Terrarium Starter Kit (moss, potting soil with activated charcoal, gardening vermiculite, plant food, finishing tool, miniature dinosaurs), Air Plant Care Guide, Terrarium Build & Care Guide.

When it's time for the event, everyone hops online using an online collaboration tool like Zoom. Teams that are already working from home will have no trouble adjusting to a virtual terrarium building workshop. 

You don't have to worry about the logistics of getting everyone their terrariums. You can have all of them delivered to one location and distribute them yourself. Alternatively, you can have each one drop shipped to individual addresses.
