If you’re looking for all the excitement and benefits of an away day but with the convenient in-office option, look no further. These team-building activities can take place in any office, allow for creativity and social union!
Option A: Zookeeper Challenge
As a creative break, we will get you working in small teams to make items for animals housed in zoos and animal sanctuaries. We will provide you with kits to make simple feeding devices, giving your team an unusual break-out event with real meaning. We will then take the finished creations to the collections, put them in with the animals and film the outcome for your team to enjoy and share. The activity can be sedate, sewing hessian parcels for primates, or a little higher energy, creating fire hose cubes for a variety of species. Please let us know if any of the team have any allergies prior to this event (i.e. nuts).
Option B: Rope Toys For Pets
Not so much of a team work exercise, but testing your team’s cognitive capabilities we will teach you the tricky art of rope splicing (joining pieces of rope together by carefully interweaving their strands). After a practice run we will get you all making rope tug toys for dogs or lures for cats and these will be yours to keep and take home to try with your own pets. If there are any left-over toys at the end of the session, we have contacts at a local dog/cat rescue centre we will donate these to on your behalf.
Option C: Cube Toys For Cats and Canines
As a creative break, we will get you working in small teams to make cube toys for either dogs or cats. Using recycled fire hose we will provide kits that with a little team effort can be turned into hard wearing toys or treat feeders for you to take home and try with your pets. If there are any left-over toys at the end of the session, we have contacts at a local dog/cat rescue centre we will donate these to on your behalf.
For an additional £5 per person for dogs or £2 per person for cats these items can be turned into noise maker toys to keep your pets entertained for hours!
