The New Year's rush is over. For many, those resolutions are starting to get stale. If you're feeling a little deflated about a promise you made to help your team connect and build camaraderie, it may be time to revive it with a little fresh air. However, that can be a challenge if you're running low on new ideas.

If this sounds like you, some spring team building activities may be just what you need to put a little pep in your step. From building beautiful (and sustainable) crafts to writing songs together, your best bet for breathing new life into your team is to find something fun to do together and let the good times roll.


Sprout some new memories with these 10 spring team building ideas:

1. Terrarium Workshop

What screams "Hello, spring!" more loudly than plants? They're great for so much more than just providing something pretty to look at. Plants have been used as medicine and food for centuries. They also contribute to employees' well-being by purifying air, reducing noise, and helping to get rid of stress.

Research shows that both productivity and creativity increase when employees can work around plants. That's a great reason to engage in a plant-themed activity. If you're looking for something that remote teams can do together, consider hosting a terrarium workshop.

This spring team building activity sends a terrarium kit right to your employees' doorsteps. During the workshop, a botanical expert will help employees build their very own glass terrarium. In the end, everyone gets a chance to showcase their creativity. They'll also build something that can make them healthier and more productive in the process.

2. Composting Basics

Gen Z is known as "the sustainability generation." Your employees are likely deeply concerned with the state of the environment. They may even want to find new ways to preserve it.Β  Many in this generation are encouraging businesses to reduce their carbon footprint. Some even base their investing decisions on it.

As a leader, it's important to care about what your employees care about. You can certainly show your concern for the environment by creating sustainable policies and initiatives. You can also do the same with the team building activities you choose.

Springtime is the perfect opportunity to mix fun and sustainability by hosting a composting class for your team. Perhaps the best thing about this idea is that no materials are needed. Your employees will learn about something that can contribute positively to the world around them. Best of all, they'll be able to do it right in their homes.

You can even take it a step further by allowing employees to share pictures and information about their home composting stations at a later time.

How to get started πŸ‘‰ Build a better world with your team with our Composting Basics activity.


3. Spring Wreath-Making Class

Nothing brings joy and relaxation to your employees quite like being in nature. With a little creativity, you can bring the colors and textures of the outdoors straight to your team with a wreath-making class.

All you have to do is book the event and invite them to the activity and Confetti will take care of the rest. You can have a knowledgeable teacher show them how to make a beautiful spring wreath that they'll surely be proud of. One bonus of choosing an activity like this is that your team will walk away with the skills to make their own wreaths for whatever holiday or season they want to celebrate. It's something you can come back to time and again.

How to get started πŸ‘‰ Book a Spring Wreath Making Class and let your team share their creativity with each other.

4. Couchella

The busy holiday season has ended, and the hoopla around the New Year is over. Your team is probably looking for something invigorating to do to start their spring season off on the right note.

You could spend thousands of dollars surprising each of your teammates with a trip to Coachella. This would, of course, make your team the envy of the organization. But since that might not be feasible, you can bring the good vibes right to their homes with a Couchella concert.

This option brings a professional musician to the main room stage to play a curated set of favorites as well as some original songs. You can also create separate rooms for conversation, pop culture trivia for friendly competition, and even a songwriting lab where participants can help write a song the musician will perform at the end of the event.

5. Horse Racing

If your team wants a little more excitement, perhaps the Kentucky Derby would be more their speed. Since it's unlikely that everyone will make it to Churchill Downs for the big event, you can give your team the next best thing: horse racing at work.

With virtual horse racing, you'll get a bookie to show your team the ropes when it comes to betting on horses. After getting a thorough education, everyone at the event will get a chance to choose a horse and cheer them on as they stack up chips.

The host provides funny commentary while everyone sits on the edge of their seats. At the end of the amazing race, your team can see how they fared against the others with a leaderboard reveal as the grand finale.

How to get started πŸ‘‰ Bring on the competition with some fun (and hilarious) virtual Horse Racing!


6. Plant Care 101

The most successful teams are those who are committed to continuing to learn new skills. It's what keeps team members engaged and helps them increase their productivity and performance. What better way to kick off a season of new things than with some fresh knowledge to share?

If anyone on your team has ever tried to keep a plant alive for more than a week, they know how hard that can be. Help them develop their green thumb with a Plant Care 101 class. They'll get a chance to learn about:

  • How plants can benefit them
  • Why succulents are different from houseplants
  • How to choose plants for their space
  • How to know how much light and water their plant requires
  • How to pot their plants

Your team will also get to ask questions and play some fun games while building a new skill.

7. Spring Cookie Decorating

There's no doubt among business leaders that creativity in the workplace is important. In fact, 60% of CEOs say it's the most important leadership quality. Creativity not only lowers stress levels and helps combat burnout but also helps employees feel more content and engaged. Best of all, it inspires teams to work together and seek out new and better ways of doing things.

Fortunately, spring is a time when many begin to feel inspired again and creativity tends to flourish in the workplace. There's no better time than now to surprise your team with a fun activity to help them get their creative juices flowing. If you're searching for spring team building activities that fit the bill, look no further than cookie decorating.

This activity is simple yet effective. We’ll send a cookie decorating kit to each employee's door. A baking instructor will provide a demonstration and host some team building challenges along the way. In the end, your teammates will get to share their creations with each other, just like you do with your work projects.

How to get started πŸ‘‰ Create a simple and fun team building experience with Spring Cookie Decorating.


8. Tie-Dye Workshop

Many people remember making tie-dye shirts in the springtime with friends. In recent years, the pattern has started to make a comeback among people of all age groups β€” and for good reason. Tie-dye is not only fun to look at and wear with casual spring outfits, but it's also fun to make. The activity gives people a reason to exercise their creativity.

The good news is that it's pretty easy to create tie-dye items with your team to build bonds and let your innovative ideas flow. Confetti will send tie-dye kits to your employees, and an instructor will do the rest.

You can choose custom colors for your team and even allow them to invite a family member along if you so choose. At the end of the workshop, everyone will get to share their creations and get some tips on how to care for them and make them last.

How to get started πŸ‘‰ Bring on the cool spring outfits with a unique Tie Dye Workshop for your team.


9. Wine Tasting

Nothing brings out the fun feelings of spring like a wine tasting. As the cold weather moves out and people start gathering again, it's the perfect time to bring back the corporate happy hour. You can use this as your opportunity to do something cool with your team by hosting a virtual wine-tasting class.

Participants in this activity will receive a tasting kit with at least four glass-sized samples of various wines. An expert mixologist will then teach them about regional wine and grape types and how to effectively taste wine and discover the tasting notes.

This class is a great way for teammates to get to know each other. If you have any new hires on your team this spring, it's an excellent opportunity for them to build lasting bonds in a relaxing environment.

How to get started πŸ‘‰ Book a Wine Tasting for a fun way for your team to get to know each other and prepare for another season of al fresco dining and entertaining.

10. Cold Brew Making Class

Whether your team is coming into the office or turning their homes into their office, every employee can use a little pick-me-up now and then. For many, cold brew coffee has become the drink of choice to get their brains firing on all cylinders. If your team is just starting to come out of the fog of winter, hosting a cold brew class is a great choice to energize them for the spring season.

Just like with other classes with kits, we’ll send everyone a kit with the materials they need. Your teammates will get to learn from a coffee expert about what makes cold brew different from iced coffee, how different types of coffee can change the flavor of their cold brew, and how to make a few specialty drinks for themselves. It's a skill they'll be able to use time and again.

How to get started πŸ‘‰ Infuse some energy into your team with a Cold Brew Making Class this spring!


Spring is the perfect time for renewed team relationships

If your team building plans are currently buried under the winter snow, you're not alone. Sometimes even the best-laid plans can go awry. However, whether your team is in the office or working from home, you can bring some fresh air into the atmosphere and boost team morale with spring team building activities.

From cold brew to terrariums, wreaths, and compost stations, get your team in the same (virtual) room to make something that bonds you together and reminds you of all the beauty and fun this season has to offer.

Whether you race virtual horses or sit on your couches and enjoy a bit of music, you'll get a chance to relax, learn new things about each other, and build strong relationships that will enhance your work.
