18 Company Team Building Activities: Indoor and Event Ideas


Not only companies and enterprises are aware of how important team building activities are, but also schools. So is there any crucial difference between team building activities for students/kids and company team building activities? While there can be some overlaps and those that are good for kids, can also be played by students, and employees, there are those that are more age appropriate and better themed for each. Since we are covering company ones in this article, let’s name a few well-known for students and kids, as some of you will find these useful as well.

For kids, we recommend Blind Retriever. It is a simple game in which each team should guide a blindfolded team member to bring an item. The team who does it first wins. Kids love this game, and by playing it, they earn how to trust each other, and now to communicate.  For somewhat older kids, high school students, for example, we’ve picked out Machinery in Motion. To play this game, students should be divided into teams, and each team should be assigned a machine that they should assemble with their bodies (for example a smartphone, vacuum cleaner, TV). They can make noises, move, create a play in a way. With this creative team bonding activity, students learn to work together, while having a lot of fun.
