If you're anything like us, you've been spending a lot more time than usual in front of a screen lately. And while we've definitely been getting our fill of Netflix and Zoom happy hours, there's only so much sitting in front of a computer we can take. That's why we've put together a list of our favorite virtual team building activities to help you blow off some steam, have some fun, and get to know your coworkers a little better—all from the comfort of your own home.
The Great Scavenger Hunt
The Great Scavenger Hunt is a classic team building activity that can easily be adapted for the virtual world. Break your team into smaller groups and give each group a list of items to find around the house. The first group to find all the items and take a picture of them wins! This is a great way to get everyone up and moving, plus it's a fun way to see how creative your teammates can be.
Two Truths and a Lie
Two Truths and a Lie is a great icebreaker that can double as a team building activity. Have each person come up with two truths about themselves and one lie, then have everyone else try to guess which one is the lie. This is a great way to get to know your teammates on a personal level, plus it's always fun to see who can come up with the most convincing lie.
The Coffee Cup Challenge
The Coffee Cup Challenge is perfect for those mornings when you need an extra boost of energy. Get everyone on your team to make their favorite coffee (or tea) drink, then have everyone share what they made and how they made it. This is not only a great way to learn about your teammates' coffee preferences, but it's also a fun way to bond over something we all love—coffee!
Whether you're looking for an icebreaker or something to get everyone up and moving, these virtual team building activities are sure to do the trick. So go ahead and give them a try—we promise you won't be disappointed!
