Let’s focus on some FUNtastic weekend activities for you because being on your bed watching Netflix all day is not really healthy for your mind and body.
Some of these activities have to be done in groups of 8 to 10 so try to find some friends or family members or even colleagues that are willing to spend the weekend together with you. Here are the 5 better activities to do during the weekends and why they are so beneficial.
1. Ninja Tag™ / Saber Tag™
Take your pick. What makes these games exciting is the fact that they give you a reason to play catching. Chase after your cowardly friends who turned their back and run! Or you could have a manly face-to-face bout of fencing. Never thought you would still be able to do this at this age huh? An added bonus is that kids and adults can play this game together as well, since fun knows no age limit.
2. Art Jamming
As you all might have heard, The Fun Empire is moving to a new office with bigger room to conduct activities. This opens up more opportunities for us as well as you! We will now be conducting art-jamming classes on Saturday for walk in customers for individuals or pairs even. So if your looking for somewhere to just exercise your creative juices, look no further, we got the place set up just for you!
Have you tried our Giant Jenga yet? It is like Jenga, only bigger and better to play. This is another suitable activity for all ages to participate together. We got every Singaporean’s favourite board games in life size. From giant aeroplane chess to life-sized snake and ladder, these games are perfect for carnivals, team buildings, birthday parties or even just for a simple barbecue at your backyard!
Office jobs can be mundane and stationary, so when it is the weekend we should do something contrary, like SaberFit®, a refreshing and energetic workout. I don’t believe I have to point out how much health benefits there are to a good consistent exercise routine. So what are you waiting for, start swinging that saber now!
Do not let any opportunity slip away during the weekends. It comes only after 5 very excruciating days, which makes the weekends all the more valuable. If there is any way to go all out Gung-Ho style, Paintball would be the game. Scream your hearts out as you turn into Rambo. Honestly, I would have my weekends no other way. At least you’ll have someone to splash some paint at as a way to relieve some stress.
All five activities are so beneficial because they promote and encourage team building. So if you went with friends, put a tick in your bucket list for doing something really unique together.
If you plan on going with family, be happy as this is a great family bonding opportunity for you, your parents and siblings.
Here’s why team building is so advantageous!
There’s nothing quite like team building games that will work up the atmosphere!
After a fun day of team building activities, you will realise that the atmosphere at home or with your friends is different.
Innovative team building, if done properly, can have this desired effect. It will bring everyone closer together, but it also increases morale by encouraging them to reach goals positively and enthusiastically!
This is especially relatable with sports club teams, office team members and more.
This translates to better work performance, for example where employees are more motivated to attain the goals set for them!
Develop Team Roles
Team building games allow you to discover what each member is good at. For example, one member may be good at leading the team and delegating work to others, while another may excel at following orders and completing day-to-day tasks!
Team building games enable team members to develop these abilities, encouraging all members to contribute to the team in their own ways that they are best at. You will then have a high-performance team that is aware of their strengths and weaknesses and can make use of these effects in the office!
Develop Problem Solving Skills
During team-building games, there are bound to be unwanted situations that arise. These might be challenges or obstacles your team members face while in the game.
The advantage is that you can train your staff to be flexible and deal with sudden changes effectively!
By exposing them to such situations in the setting of a game, your employees will have more opportunities to develop their problem-solving skills and also increase their confidence in using these skills in their favour.
These problem-solving skills will definitely be an asset in a corporate setting. Your employees will thank you for it in the future!
Improve Office or Team Culture
Many companies, teams, clubs or organisations place importance on team building activities for one simple reason – to improve office culture.
This is because a good office culture has endless benefits like better relationships between team members, improved cooperation, a positive work environment and more.
Team building activities can achieve this by breaking down barriers between team members through group activities.
By making members work towards a common goal, these creative games serve as ice breakers and allow members to bond with each other.
This also creates more camaraderie where your staff look out for each other and do not hesitate to offer help in times of need!
