So, what a neat concept, although there are team-building events that can get quite competitive, when it ends with a charitable donation, everyone wins. Here are some similar ideas, similar to the bike-build idea (from a previous post). All of these have teams work together to assemble products to later be donated to a charitable organization. Here’s a link for some more information on these ideas: http://www.teambuilding-unlimited.com/charity.html
- Rocking Horse assembly
- Red Wagon assembly
- Tricycle assembly
- School backpack assembly & decoration
Here’s some other variations on the same concept…that may be a bit more fun and creative:
- Collect non perishable food items before your team build activity. Challenge teams to create a put-put golf hole using the food products they are allotted, then donate the food products to a local food bank. Give prizes for the most creative, or add a theme element.
- To encourage teams to examine their creative genes, give teams several blank canvases where they can paint groupings of paintings. Then donate these groupings to a local charity to auction off at a fundraising event.
- Have your team explore the mission of a local charitable organization, ask them to develop a pillow-case sized representation of their vision. Have the pillowcases sewn together to create a mural project. The local organization can hang the mural in their lobby or conference room as a decoration.
