April 17, 2022 by The Fun Empire Team

Virtual Team Building

Due to the current pandemic situation around the world, everyone has been told to stay home and to stay safe. In Singapore, we are all under a “Circuit Breaker” similar to a lockdown. With the new initiative, we are to stay at home and work from home if we are required to or to even work within remote teams. This is where online team building or virtual team building activities comes into place!

Because of the Circuit Breaker, companies are thinking of ways to keep their employees occupied. Be it giving them work or thinking of Virtual Team Building activities for them to have an online team building session.

Here’s a list of virtual team building activities that are catered for remote teams:

1. Virtual Art Jamming (Canvas)

The Fun Empire has come up with a series of Virtual team building activities for remote teams to have online team-building experience. One of their activities would be the virtual Art Jamming on canvas. Items for the virtual workshop will be delivered directly to the individual households of the participants on the actual day of the virtual session.

On the day of the session, the idea is to get everyone to work together to eventually combine each of their canvases to make a collage of paintings. Hence, they would need to work as a team and appoint someone as the "main leader". This person will then have to allocate the respective parts of the main painting that everyone is to do. But I promise it is not as complicated as it sounds. 

2. Virtual Terrarium Making Workshop

Another virtual workshop that The Fun Empire has is the Virtual Terrarium Making. These virtual team building activities allows participants to gather together and build their own terrarium over a video call. This brings people together which is evidently one of the most important things at the moment. As we don’t get to meet our friends or even colleagues as often as we previously did, having a session like this would be very fruitful. Building the Terrarium would be a great online team building as well as participants would be able to bring their masterpiece back to the office once the Circuit Breaker is lifted.

3. Virtual Party Mania

The Fun Empire has combined a couple of party games together to have the Virtual Party Mania! The virtual party mania is to get teams together to have a virtual team-building experience. Currently, there are not many virtual team building activities for remote teams to have online team building sessions together.

Thus, participating in this Virtual Party Mania would be quite a new and fun experience.

You can even organize a session together over the weekends!
