Typing speed races are free virtual team building activities that you can start right now. To begin, take a typing test. Then, post your results on your company message board or by email.

3. Bingeing with boss

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Fun and Interaction

In these difficult times people are cooking and eating at home more often. This love for cooking and eating is generally popular worldwide. Invite your team members to participate in a recipe roundup, which could have themes like “recipes with only 3 ingredients” or “Five-minute food” etc. While these team activities are mostly meant to be fun, there is also a strong element of communication involved.

 

4. EXAGGERATE!

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Fun and Interaction

 

This is a quick and easy storytelling game that you can use. Each team member grabs a random object in arms length and creates a story about it, or can choose to describe a generic object. The goal is to exaggerate the truth about what makes that object amazing.

For example, if someone picked up an alarm clock, they could say “this is a relic from the past that was used by lord Ram, an artifact that has been passed through generations as a secret ”. This activity is exactly what exaggeration is. Not necessarily essential, but pretty dramatic and exciting.

5. Spreadsheet Pixel Art

 

⏰: 30 mins

Focus: Fun and Interaction 

Facilitation: Required

While most teams are very familiar with Google Sheets, relatively few think of them as remote employee engagement activities. If you are both a professional and an artist at heart, then you will enjoy this activity.

Essentially, Spreadsheet Pixel Art is when you add a little code to Sheets that will automatically replace numbers with a color fill for that cell. You can then use these colored cells to “paint the numbers” and create pictures of animals, landscapes and more. For virtual team building activities, you can do a short-term competition or work on the same sheet.

6. Debate

 

⏰: 15 mins

Focus: Competition and Interaction

Friendly debates are always fun to have. You can give the team members a topic and split them into two clusters – one speaking for the topic and one against it. The topic can be anything ranging from current affairs to something work-related.

Each cluster can be given a separate virtual room to discuss the plots and ideas for a certain duration and then later a debate can be held on a common platform.

7. I Have A Dream

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Fun and Interaction

 

A bucket list is something that is very personal, something that is close to ones  heart. A bucket list helps understand people better, get to know their thoughts and personalities. Sharing your bucket list with your colleagues will help in understanding each other at a deeper lever. In times like these, all we need is people who are there with us and understand us.

8. Upcycling

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Fun and Creation

 

Everyone has a pile of things that is just kept aside for future use, and that future is now. Take all that stuff and get recycling. Bring out your creativity and make the best out of waste. You can also have a small competition among your employees.

9. Great Minds Think Alike

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Interaction and Creation

In this activity one team member draws a picture using only basic shapes. A selected team member then describes the picture that was drawn to everyone else. Without seeing the picture, each person must attempt to reproduce the picture based only on what the selected team member is saying to them! The ultimate goal is that everyone is able to create the same picture as the original.

Although some pictures will be more similar than others. This Activity emphasizes how important verbal communication is while working with others, and also how communication can be interpreted differently by different people.

There can be 2 rounds for the activity – the first round in which only the person who is drawing is allowed to speak and the second round in which all team members can ask questions to the person who is drawing.

10. Nostalgia 

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Fun and Interaction

 

Tea time stories are an essential part of our culture. Everyone has their favorite story or a moral that they learnt from these stories. They can be ranging from stories that you read in books or personally heard from your grandparents. Sharing these stories with your colleagues adds a personal touch brings back some nostalgia.

Who doesn’t love a good story that takes them back in time and gives them a much needed break from the current situation

11. Sharp Minds

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Fun and Interaction

 

Books are a man’s  best friend. Sometimes you read a book and it fills you with this weird zeal, and you have this strange feeling like everyone you know should read the book that you are reading. Teams can have virtual book reading/book suggesting sessions that not only help in understanding their teammates better but also bring out vast choices of books that they can read and gain wisdom and knowledge.

12. Inspire Me

⏰: 30 mins

Focus: Fun and Interaction

 

With WFH being the need of the hour, is no doubt that motivation is required. Each day one person can be given a task to find out an interesting TED talk that can be helpful for the team in terms of work or generally. This will not only make things interesting, it will also bring in the aspect of learning new things.

 

13. Social Shakespeare

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Fun and Interaction

 

Each member of the team can be given the task to write a poetry about the co-workers and present it the next day. Each member gets a new name everyday and in random order. This will not only bring the team members closer but also bring out creative poetry skills

14. Work Out Mates

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Fitness and Interaction

 

We always have an excuse for not having the time for physical fitness. Now that our travel time has reduced. we have all the time to work on those abs that we always wanted. have your teams take some time off from the stressful work and have a fitness jam together. From yoga, zumba to cardio – the possibilities are endless.

15. Qualcosa Di Nuovo

 

⏰: 15 – 20 mins

Focus: Interaction and Learning

In a diverse nation like India, it is almost impossible to know each and every language. A team member can be assigned a task to teach words of their mother tongue or a commonly picked language that majority of the team members want to learn. This will not only help with the cultural gap but also will bring in the advantage of learning a new language.
