If you’re looking for team building exercises to promote bonding, you’ve come to the right place! It’s more important than ever to build stronger relationships within your team to keep them motivated and healthy.
In light of this year’s pandemic, your team probably needs a break. They’ve had to re-adjust their entire daily routine and keep working throughout times no one has ever seen before. Without being able to see your colleagues every day, keeping up motivation can be difficult. We’ve all had days of rolling out of bed and working in our pyjamas! While this doesn’t do anything for your mental health, it won’t take long before you feel sluggish and tired.
Your team have done an amazing job at keeping the business afloat, and they’re probably missing the work banter, after-work drinks and of course work lunches. All of the fun times at work are crucial for every business because it gives everyone something to look forward to, and it makes them feel like they are appreciated after the long hours they’ve put in.
But, these times don’t need to end just because you may all be working from home! Whether you’re looking for in-person team building activities or virtual team building activities, let us help you find some unique team building ideas everyone will love!

Choose between thousands of in-person and online cooking classes featuring so many different cuisines.

Not only are cooking classes fantastic team building activities, but it could also actually do so much more for everyone, other than to make a restaurant-worthy meal together.

After work drinks with a cocktail making classes
You usually have the after work drinks down without much planning involved. You know the local pub like the back of your hand, but this time think about changing things up.

With a cocktail making class, everyone will have the opportunity to shake a cocktail and learn how to make some amazing drinks they’ll love. This will easily break the ice and because you’ll be actually doing something rather than just sitting there with a schooner in your hand, your whole team will be able to participate.
