Team buildings can range from quick and simple in-office activities to complex ones. The main goal is to make time and space for people to bond and improve various other skills. Some people are definitely not fans of team building activities as they sometimes elicit embarrassment rather than enthusiasm. *Introverts, we hear and see you!* However, some really aren’t that bad!
You can make your team building as interesting as possible with just a few fresh ideas. Start with these fun and engaging activities for both indoor and outdoor!

Drawception is a combination of drawing with the classic telephone game rules. This activity enhances your communication skills. It begins with a phrase which is then drawn by the first player in your team. That drawing is then described by the next player. This process is repeated until all the players have taken their turn. Once the game is completed, players can view the resulting chain of their drawings and descriptions. The game typically transform in unexpected ways and turns out differently from where they started from. Suuuuper fun!

This simple but fun game is a classic ice-breaker game that comes highly recommended! Players can sit in a circle (or few circles if there are more people) and prepare three statements. Then, each player will take turns telling the entire group two things about them that are true and one thing that’s false. The aim of the game is to have other players figure out which statement is a lie!

Minefield is an engaging game involving trust and communication. This game is quite flexible in terms of group sizes and ways to play it. Players are required to work in pairs – one person is blindfolded and cannot talk while his/her partner is able to see and talk, but is not allowed to enter the field. The challenge is for each blindfolded person to walk from one side of the field to the other, avoiding the “mines”, by listening to the verbal instructions of their partners.
