Corporate family fun days are indeed a great way to get everyone together for a day of – what else? – fun and laughter. It’s a brilliant way to get to know everyone in the company and foster an atmosphere of friendship and camaraderie as well. Everyone can relax as family fun days exude a more casual environment than a regular day at the workplace, for sure. But if you are planning a corporate family fun day for your company, you may be wondering what kind of elements you should add to it so it can be a memorable and unforgettable event for everyone. Here, then, is a list of brilliant ideas to make your corporate family fun day a real success.
- Barbecue food stations
Nothing says casual more than a barbecue food station. Everyone loves a barbecue, especially in the summer. The smell of grilled meat puts everyone in a good mood and whets everyone’s appetite, and if you want to make it even more spectacular, you can have a variety of food stations serving a whole plethora of barbecued meat, seafood, and so on. Everyone can enjoy sausages and steaks or fish or grilled prawns, and even the vegetarians can have their fill of barbecued or grilled vegetables and salads.
- A good game of football
Football is the national sport, after all, and what better way to get everyone to bond than with a good game of footy? Make sure, though, that you tell everyone in advance to bring some sports clothes so they can join in the game and have fun without worrying about ruining their outfits for the day. A nice and relatively competitive game of footy can allow different people from different departments the chance to get to know each other. Here’s one tip as well: try to match different individuals from various departments, so you have an even mix.
- An interesting scavenger hunt
A scavenger hunt is great as it allows both kids and adults to enjoy a fun and exciting game. If you organise a scavenger hunt, you can give the participants the chance to get involved in a common goal and objective, and it also breaks the ice and paves the way for better conversation and communication. Even though it may take some time to prepare on your end, the results are well worth it. Of course, you have to make sure that the hunt is entertaining yet challenging at the same time and try not to make it too difficult or frustrating as you don’t want it to take too long to solve. Here’s another thing you can do to make it more entertaining: give a prize to the winning team and have everyone partake of a great feast once the game is finished.
- Fairground rides and attractions
Fairground rides and attractions are other classic elements of any corporate family fun day, and in fact, they are a must if you really want your event to be memorable. There are plenty of fairground rides for hire nowadays, and your choice of rides includes traditional rides and even vintage rides as well as more contemporary rides and attractions.
- A classic tug of war game
Family fun days have always been focused on outdoor activities, and one of the best outdoor activities you can have is a classic tug of war game. It’s always a lot of fun, and you can even make it into a tournament by having teams take turns with several rounds until one team emerges as the winner. If you want, you can also just have a single round with a person from each department playing on each side. You can include a small prize at the end of the game, such as a trophy, to encourage everyone’s competitive side.
