6 Last Minute Christmas Team Building Games

Worried you’ve left it too late? Fearing the possibility of an in office Christmas party eating half frozen party pies, listening to the grumbles of your colleagues? Never fear! We have a list of great last minute Christmas team building games for the busy team. They are fantastic, simple and we can (probably) find you a vacancy at this busy time of the year.

1. Give back this Christmas with Bike Factor

This emotionally charged, charity-based team building activity sees your team working together and communicating in order to build a bike. What they do not realise is that the bikes are not just being built for the purpose of the exercise but are actually being given as gifts to children from either a charity you choose or one we have an existing relationship with. The look of excitement on the kid’s faces is worth all the struggle of assembling the bikes. Bike factory is a wonderful team building Christmas activity and one of our most popular. It can be held indoor or outdoors, runs for around 4 hours, suits groups between 31 and 200 people and is held in all states in Australia.

2. Exercise your team building taste buds with Chocolate making

Invigorate your inner child by taking your team to a daytime or nighttime chocolate workshop. Learn the history of chocolate, the difference between milk, white and dark chocolate and how to make your own! Choose a mould and fill it with any number of flavours. While your chocolate sets, enjoy dipping strawberries, marshmallows, turkish delight and nuts into a chocolate fountain. Also we have it on good authority that the complimentary Rose petal hot chocolate is life changing. Chocolate making is definitely a Christmas treat for a very special team. Plus, everyone gets to take home a box of his or her very own homemade chocolates: the perfect Christmas gift!

3. Play the Pirates of the Swan team building game

I invoke the right of parlay! Swagger around like Captain Jack Sparrow on your very own sailing boat in pursuit of treasure! In Pirates of the Swan you sail on the Swan river with an experienced instructor who will also entertain and guide your team through the challenges. Using a treasure map, navigate your way around the high seas and ultimately to dry land where the Treasure Chest awaits. But who can solve the clues to find the right digits to open the chest? Pirates of the Swan is a brilliant Christmas activity, located on Perth’s stunning swan river, it’s perfect for soaking up the summer sun while bonding with your team.

Love Amazing races, but want something a little less competitive and with a little more alcohol? Amazing Race Bar Romp is the Amazing race for you! It has all the traditional race elements, teams are given a race kit, a checkpoint list and map but in order to complete the tasks your team will have to have a clever strategy rather than just speed. Once you have solved all your clues at checkpoints (bars) along the way, you decipher a code that takes you to the final destination where a whole new challenge can completely change the running order you’ve spent the day achieving! Amazing Race Bar Romp is just that, a hilarious romp, filled with twists and turns, lots of laughs and a few beers. Your team will think you had planned it all along!
