It is often said that having a laugh or a giggle is paramount to build rapport. We definitely agree! While there is a science behind it as to why social laughing encourages better relationships with one another, we don’t want to bore you with such complicated jargon. Instead here’s an activity that is sure to ensure that you have a barrel of laughs! Bubble Bump Soccer is an interesting twist of the futsal game. Participants will be encased in bubble suits while being allowed to bump into one another. By witnessing the hilarious scenes of your colleagues falling down while trying to score a goal, we are definitely sure that all of you will be able to build more rapport with one another as a result!

2) Two Truths, One Lie

I’m sure most of us have heard of or even participated in this simple and classic game. But that doesn’t make it any less fun! Start by having everyone sit in a circle. In the meantime, while they’re finding a place to sit, you can get them to start thinking of three statements. The statements should contain two truths and one lie. After which, each player takes turns to say all three statements while the rest try to guess which statement out of the three is the lie. This encourages better team bonding amongst employees as they get to build rapport with one another more personally instead of on a work-to-work basis.

3) Cooking Classes

The third team building activity that we recommend to encourage bonding with one another is by attending cooking classes. However, you may be confused as cooking classes isn’t exactly considered as a game. That’s where you’re wrong. You can change it up by including a cooking battle segment after the class itself. By including a competitive element to the class itself, it can develop unity amongst team members as they aim to clinch the position for the best dish cooked. There’s definitely nothing better than feeling as if everyone has played a part in cooking up the dish!

4) Kayaking

This activity is also very convenient as there are multiple spots whereby you can hold it such as Bedok Reservoir, Jurong Lake, Lower Seletar Reservoir, MacRitchie Reservoir, Marina Reservoir, and Pandan Reservoir. Leave all your worries and stresses ashore as you paddle onwards with your colleagues!
