Fun Team Building Activities in Singapore – Team Building Ideas You (may) Have Not Thought of
Had enough of conventional team building activities and looking for something different? Something that others have not done? Here is a list for you to try out. Yes, you’re welcome.
#1 The Voice of _____________ (*inserts company name*)
China singing contests are all the hype now, from established singers pitting their vocal skills against each other on the platform once again, to ordinary folks showcasing their amazing vocals and enjoying their one minute of fame, What about having your own version among your colleagues? Book a KTV sesh with your colleagues and make this a dream come true! Take turns being the ruthless judges (Na Ying or Harlem Yu anyone?) giving critics to each other’s singing, or simply let your boss have the honour of being the permanent judge. Certainly a one-of-a-kind team building event in Singapore isn’t it!
Fancy being the next Nathan Hartono?
What’s more, with all the Pokemon-frenzy, simply flash your Jigglypuff (a Pokemon said to have a melodious voice that sings soothing lullabies to put audience to sleep) caught in your Pokedex and enjoy a free hour on the house from Teo Heng KTV Studio! Terms and conditions apply so do check them out before heading there! Don’t say we bojio.
#2 Train to Busan
Having crossed the 10 million viewer mark in South Korea, the South Korean hit is also enjoying its success here on our shores. Train to Busan has become the highest grossing Korean movie in Singapore to date, with earnings triple that of the next best performing Korean movie, 200 Pounds Beauty in 2006. Its huge success could be attributed to the well-balanced mix of thriller, along with a touching story accompanying those action-packed scenes.
Why not arrange a movie session with your colleagues as a team building event? Get your tissues ready.
#3 Running Man (Korea/China versions)
Be it the original Korean version or Hurry Up, Brother (奔跑吧兄弟), a spin-off from the popular South Korean series. something common among the both would be the hilarious scenes, the creative games and of course, forming allies and betraying. Now we all know the flying chairs or the mud ponds are not very feasible in our context, so why not adopt something more realistic, yet fun all the same?
- Photo Zone
A simple and absolutely hilarious game if you’ve watched the Running Man episodes. A camera propped on a tripod is needed, a marking on the ground, along with a ‘photo frame’. A small area is marked out, a large photo frame held high, and the tripod with the camera placed a short distance away. The timer of the camera is set on and participants have to fight and squeeze within the designated area on the ground and fight to be present within the photo frame by constantly jumping so that your face appears when the timer stops and the camera clicks. Really challenging!
- Draw Down the Lane
As the name suggests, it’s essentially drawing charades. And as simple as it may sound, it turns out really funny especially with colleagues who are not exactly Picassos or Vincent van Goghs. Just check out the image above! Is that really the same rhinoceros being drawn?
- Take your Pick
Extremely fun and easy to administer! A series of utensils are numbered 1-7 and participants are free to pick any one to complete the task. For instance, participants are required to finish a bowl of the infamous Korean spicy instant noodles. If numbers 2, 5 and 8 are picked, they are supposed to use the designated utensils to finish up that bowl of noodles. If 2 is a toothpick, 5 is a straw, then too bad. Game play is flexible and can be changed easily as well! Tea spoons, stirrer, ladle etc. can be used as well, accompanying the task of finishing up a cup of sugar-free coffee, whereby the type of utensils used determines the amount of sugar to add.
These are just some examples! There are certainly more so do incorporate the others as well which serves as an extremely engaging and fun team building activity for all!
Activities involving eating food is always welcome. Maybe once a month, your boss (or somebody) will give a specific theme (eg. salmon, or pastries). Participants (colleagues) will then have to cook according to theme, and bring to office to share, and for some “judging”. Sounds like a really fun idea, pitting your cooking skills, and yet get to bond together over some home-cooked goodness. Get your aprons ready now!
#5 Korean/Taiwan Drama
The craze for hot/cute Korean guys (or ladies) will never be over, just admit it. With all the upcoming drama series, find your favourite scene and re-enact that with your colleagues! Sounds awkward, but it could be really fun especailly when colleagues burst out in laughter at that most crucial romantic scene. Wouldn’t be surprised to see that the tying of shoelace scene in Descendants of the Sun as a popular scene to be re-enacted.
