Lots of people are now looking for virtual team building activities. Since a lot of people are now working from home and Zoom is the best way to stay connected, you still need things to do that are not work related.
Activities online are the best way to stay connected as a team. Big Zoom chats are often a bit difficult – only one person can speak at a time. Having professional produced virtual team building activities with a focus make sure you get to see and speak with everyone, without the awkward Zoom silences.
Virtual Team Building Activities
There are lots of Virtual Team Building Activities you can do for team meetings to help people stay connected. For instance, instead of just doing a quiz, maybe try a fancy dress quiz with bespoke questions? Or maybe you could get a cocktail kit for everyone and a virtual bartender to show you how to make your own cocktails.
Another great idea is a ‘Through the Keyhole’ event. You have someone in the company who can take you around their house (without showing who they are first) and people have to guess who lives there.
Here are some of the most popular virtual team building activities that have become popular over the last few months
- Racing Night
- Cocktail Making
- Stand Up Comedy
- Through The Keyhole
- Online Magic Show
Virtual Team Building Activities Online Magic Show
A Zoom magic and mind reading show is one of the best and most amazing virtual team building activities you can do. You can have as many guests on as you like. Everyone gets to watch an amazing show and it’s interactive, so you don’t just watch the show, you get to take part (only if you’d like to of course). Often Alan will talk to you asking you to think of a number, a playing card or a picture. He’ll tell you what you are thinking of – even though not only are you not in the same room, you could be 1000’s of miles away.
Alan Hudson, recently seen on Britain’s Got Talent, is one of the UK’s top magicians and is one of the original Zoom illusionists. Performing at dozens of team meetings, get togethers and events per week, Alan has the perfect Zoom virtual team building activity magic show.
How does it work?
You’ll get sent a Zoom link or Alan can jump on to yours at the right time. The show lasts for 30-45 minutes (can be longer or shorter if required. Many businesses like around 15-20 mins). Alan will then interact with your colleagues with magic and mind reading miracles. It’s even more amazing that he can do the magic when he’s not even in the same room as them.
Large Zoom chats can be a bit awkward if you haven’t got a main speaker. Virtual team building activities can often be a bit lame. Sure, you can all learn how to fold a towel in to a swan, play a treasure hunt or look at what’s behind people in their front room. But a mind reading magician will blow their socks off. Many people have said it’s the best experience they’ve ever had on a Zoom chat.
