Virtual Team Building Ideas For Work

1. Virtual Team Building Icebreaker Ideas

Imagine this…you’re getting ready to attend a meeting with people from all over the company and you have no idea who they are. You want to get to know them but you aren’t sure how. Cue an ice breaker activity! Of all virtual team building ideas for work, ice breakers are the most fun way to get to know your team and even other departments. Ice breakers are typically used as a “pre-event” activity. They’re usually a warm up to get people out of their shells and conversing…or in other words, to break the ice!

Some of our favorite virtual ice breaker ideas are Show & Tell, Highs and Lows, Guess The Desk, and Two Truths & A Lie:

  • Show & Tell
    • Difficulty level: Low
    • Set up:
      • Pick a designated day/meeting to host this virtual ice breaker
      • Send an email to your team asking each person to bring an item and a story along with it to share with the group! (this email should also include a suggested timeframe so they know what type of story to prepare)
      • Come up with an order of presentations for the meeting 
    • How to play: 
      • Prior to the meeting, you can choose to announce the order of presentations to the participants or you can keep it a secret to be sure everyone is ready on time! 
      • Do a short intro to the activity so everyone stays on topic
      • Call out your first presenter and allow them to introduce themself, their department (if necessary), and show off their item with a story!
      • Repeat this for all attendees/presenters
      • Pro tip: Allow other attendees to comment or ask questions to deepen the connections and drive communication and conversation
  • Highs and Lows
    • Difficulty level: Low
    • Set up: 
      • Of all of our virtual team building ideas, this is probably one of the easiest. It’s a great idea if you find yourself in a last-minute pinch!
      • This could be either a surprise or something you warn your team about! 
      • If you choose to tell them about it early, pick a designated day/meeting to host this virtual team building ice breaker
      • Send an email to your team asking each person to prepare one high and one low from a specific time period
      • Be sure to clarify whether they should bring a personal high and low or a business high and low
      • Pro tip: At our company, we like to do both! Everyone can relate to the business highs/lows and the personal highs/lows allow them to get to know each other better
      • Come up with an order for discussion during the meeting (alphabetical, department, your choice!)
    • How to play: 
      • When the designated meeting time arrives, have each person share their high and low in the designated order
      • You can tell your team about the order or you can keep it a surprise
      • Pro tip: If you include personal highs and lows AND business highs and lows, do them in 2 different rounds! It helps define the line between business and personal but also it allows people to connect on different levels depending on the category!
      • Pro tip: Have each person say their low first, immediately followed by their high. This avoids a “down” feeling for a portion of your meeting and instead has each person ending on a high note! 
  • Guess The Desk – a great game for remote teams! 
    • Difficulty level: Medium 
    • Set up: 
      • This virtual team building idea is great for remote teams who may not have seen each other’s work areas
      • Send an email out to your team asking everyone to send in a picture of their desk/working area 
      • Create a deadline for the submissions so you can be sure you have them in time 
      • Compile the photos into a presentation to show during your meeting – just be sure to keep it anonymous!
      • Pro tip: Create an answer key in advance
    • How to play: 
      • When the day of the meeting arrives, show your screen and do a short intro to explain the game
      • Show the pictures and let all the attendees guess whose desk they are looking at!
      • Go through each slide and have the group write down their answers
      • At the end, go back through the pictures and announce the correct answers to see how many your team got right!
      • Pro tip: To encourage participation, you can offer a small prize to the winner for most points 
      • Pro tip: To up the ante, you can also allow your team to vote on the best desk set-up and give a small prize to the person with the most votes!
  • Two Truths and a Lie
    • Difficulty level: Easy
    • Set-up: 
      • This could be either a surprise or something you plan in advance!
      • Send an email to your team asking them to come up with three “facts” about themselves – but one of them must be a lie! 
      • Remind them to keep it PG for the workplace
  • How to Play: 
    • On the day of the meeting, have each person share their three “facts”
    • After each person shares the information, have the other attendees guess on which one was the lie! This could be a group discussion and decision or a singular choice 
    • Tip: to make the game more fun, offer a prize to the person or group that guessed the most lies!

The virtual team building ideas above are a great way to get the conversation going and help the team learn a little more about each other. Incorporating quick virtual team building ice breakers into meetings and check-ins is easy to do yourself and costs nothing!

2. Family Feud Online

Family Feud is one of the longest-running game shows, and its popularity makes it a great virtual team building idea. In this game, players listen to a prompt and try to guess the top answers others have given to the same prompt. This virtual team building activity works in person or virtually depending on the dynamics of your team. Either way, it will spark a little competition and bring in some humor. Because it doesn’t involve personal sharing, it’s also a great team building activity for work teams that are still getting to know each other.

This type of game could be created as a DIY experience, but because virtual Family Feud team building is a bit more complicated to produce than a virtual ice breaker, we recommend hiring a company to help. Confetti’s version of Family Feud is called Coworker Feud and can be either virtual or hybrid. Their games are customizable and, like our virtual escape rooms here at Escapely, include an energetic host to get your team through the rounds and announce the winner.

Family Feud games are not knowledge-based – attendees are only trying to guess what other people have guessed! – so they allow all attendees to feel as though they are contributing something to the experience! The fun is all in hearing the answers your team comes up with!

3. Virtual Team Trivia

How many times have you or someone else on your team thought, “I have all of this random knowledge! Where will I ever use it?” Finally, an answer: a virtual trivia team building event! Your coworkers will get to show off their niche knowledge of 80s horror films, world cuisine, or (gasp) 90s era boy bands. The fun coworkers have showing off their knowledge and the opportunity for everyone to learn something new is what makes this one of the best virtual team building ideas!

Escapely’s virtual trivia team building comes with your choice of categories and an energetic host who will make the event really exciting (check out our incredible client reviews). We can host you as one big group and take things one question at a time or our favorite, rapid fire rounds during which employees try to answer as many questions as possible. Virtual trivia could be produced as a DIY event, but to give it the elevated excitement that our hosts bring to the event, we highly recommend leaving it to the professionals. It also allows you to participate! Trust us – it’s a virtual team building idea for work you won’t want to miss out on.

Our virtual trivia is customizable to relate to your team and/or the goals of your virtual team building event. You can incorporate training initiatives, use it to onboard new employees, host diversity and inclusion virtual team building activities with custom categories, and celebrate milestones and holidays. We have an always-growing list of categories already built into our library and we are easily able to craft custom categories for our clients!

4. Price is Right

Come on down and make your team the next contestants on the Price is Right! That’s right! The Price is Right is a great virtual team building activity that utilizes daily knowledge to win big. Well…as big as you want them to win that is. You are in charge of the prize, of course. In the Price is Right attendees try to guess the price of a variety of items. The person who gets the closest without going over wins!

This game can be done without professional assistance, but it will take some planning to execute. First, you must find items that most people in the office know. Then, look up and document the prices. A document with the price and picture of each item is a great way to keep it all straight. Taking pictures is highly recommended because the specific brand often dramatically influences pricing. A picture will make the brand crystal clear.

To play the game, simply announce the item and any details you would like to include about the item and allow your participants to guess the price. The person with the closest number to its actual price – without going over – wins that round’s points! You will just need to be sure everyone is operating on the honor system. Google is not allowed! To add a little spice to this game, you can even throw in some of the Price is Right mini-games as an added activity for the winners. All the rules for these games are included in this link and you can manipulate them however you would like to best fit your group!

5. Charades on Zoom

Most people have played this hilarious game with their friends and family at some point in their lives. Have you ever wondered how it would go with your coworkers? It’s a blast! All you are allowed to use are your facial expressions and actions – no words allowed. Everyone has a different idea regarding how things should be portrayed, so this activity and coworker’s guesses will keep everyone laughing.

If you are wondering whether this can be done virtually, the answer is yes, very easily! Because all you need is video conferencing, it’s one of the most straightforward virtual team building ideas. To make this activity successful, you need a meeting link and a camera for each participant. We recommend a head-to-head challenge with two evenly split groups because it’s just as fun to watch the other team as it is to play when it’s your turn.

Each team is responsible for choosing the word or phrase that the other team must act out. We recommend choosing a theme to keep things more consistent. The team choosing the word or phrase should private message it to the actor on the opposing team. Then that actor has one minute to get their team to guess it without using words! Some fun category suggestions are: movies, 80s songs, everyday activities, sports, and animals. You can also make it even more random by using this word generator to choose what the teams will be acting out. Charades over Zoom is loads of fun and easy to execute, making it a perfect virtual team building activity!

6. Office Scavenger Hunts

Working virtually has changed the office work environment with impacts on company structure and employee connectedness. It’s harder to forge close connections if coworkers are not meeting over the water cooler to hear about weekend plans. But a successful team connects on more levels than just professionally! Virtual scavenger hunts can help teams do just that and they are free virtual team building activities for work.

Have you ever cleaned your house and found something unexpected? Something with a hilarious or interesting accompanying story you wish you could share with your colleagues or friends? Well, this is your chance. All you need are participants (your colleagues), a meeting platform that allows for people to be on camera, and a list of items! Your list of items can consist of random things that might spark conversation (movie tickets or concert ticket stubs, foreign currency, etc.) or it could include items relating to your company (business cards, logos, merchandise, etc.).

To play, get everyone on a videoconferencing link for a set amount of time. We recommend keeping the time frame short, no more than 60 seconds to 2 minutes per round. This creates some urgency and keeps the game moving! Then read your items from your list, one at a time. Participants must go find the item (if they have it) and show it on camera to gain points! The winner is the person who found the most items and got the most points. If you have bigger groups, you can also play this virtual team building activity in teams.

7. Virtual Pictionary

If you’re looking for a virtual team building idea that is almost custom-made to play over Zoom, look no further than virtual pictionary. It works much better in a virtual environment than in person! Note that you will need use of the Zoom whiteboard feature, so it doesn’t work as well over other platforms. Being a good artist is not required and in our opinion it’s actually more fun if you are not!

For this game, you need a meeting platform with the ability to draw on the screen, a list of words to draw, and a fun group of team members ready to play. We recommend using Zoom as it offers a really convenient annotation feature combined with a whiteboard – your blank canvas! When it comes to the words you will be drawing, you can make this list as easy or hard as you would like to fit your team.

The gameplay is simple. Split into two teams and decide who will draw first from each team. The rest of the team will guess! The other team can be responsible for telling the drawer what they need to get their team to guess. Alternatively, an organizer who is not playing can give the words or phrases to both teams. Either way, the words or phrases should be sent privately through chat to the drawers so that no one else can see. Give each team 60 seconds to guess what the drawer is drawing. If they get it in the allotted time, they get a point. It’s just as fun to watch the other team draw as it is to be on the guessing or drawing team! The winner is determined by the team that receives the most points during the allotted game time. For ease of setup and its perfect fit for virtual events, virtual pictionary makes the top of our list of fun virtual team building activities for remote employees.

8. Speed Typing Races

How long do you think it takes you to type a predetermined paragraph? Are you the fastest in your company? This game lets you find out with a little friendly competition! Typing speed races are a virtual team building idea that not only encourages some healthy competition but also benefits the company!

Typing speed races consist of providing a written paragraph that the participants must duplicate perfectly with no errors or typos. Time each person, one at a time, and the fastest person wins! Everyone needs to be careful because any errors or typos disqualify that person!

There are also ways you can spice up this competition. If you want to up the ante, find random words to type that don’t go together. That makes it even harder! Speed typing races can help companies find out who thrives behind a computer keyboard and who is the fastest typer. It is a friendly competition that gets everyone simultaneously trying to win and rooting for each other!

9. Heads Up

Are you looking for fun and free virtual team building activities for work? How about something that mixes charades, trivial knowledge, and acting to bring some extra enthusiasm? Well then we have just the thing for you: Heads Up! 

Heads Up! is a free app-based game created by Ellen Degeneres that is interactive and can be played by any group size, small or large! It is downloadable from the app store. You can choose to split into multiple teams or play together as one large group. Each group will need their own mobile device that has the Heads Up! app downloaded, so keep that in mind when dividing teams. If you’re looking for virtual team building ideas for small groups, this one is perfect – though you could accommodate a larger group by dividing into teams.

Playing the game is easy as well! Teams select the deck they would like to play, choose one person on each team to be the “guesser” and have that person hold the phone against their forehead with the screen facing outward. As soon as they click start, words and phrases will pop up on the screen that the rest of the team needs to get the player to guess! Teams get points for each one they get correct. As soon as the timer goes off, the app will tell you how many you got correct for that round! An added bonus for fun is that it even records the “actors” during the game so you can go back and watch the round as well! Heads Up! Creates a fun and exhilarating experience that requires the teams to work together and collaborate.

10. Virtual Escape Room

Virtual escape rooms are queen amongst virtual team building ideas for several reasons (sure, we’re a little biased, but hear us out)! Online escape rooms combine all of the elements you would want a team building event to include: communication, competition, listening, teamwork, problem solving, overcoming challenges, and FUN!

At Escapely, our virtual escape rooms have the added benefit that even though there is only one winner (the team that escapes the fastest!), every team escapes. Our moderators give enough or as few hints as needed to pace teams appropriately to finish in the allotted time. This allows everyone to bond and connect over the shared victory.

Another advantage of virtual escape room team building is that it works for groups of any size without altering the experience at all. With most events, more people would mean a crowded Zoom call with too many people to interact. In our virtual escape rooms, more people means we provide more moderators so that everyone experiences the game on a small team with individual attention! Finally, online escape rooms don’t rely on any one skill. Everyone will have something to offer, from logical reasoning to language skills to math to color, all participants have something to bring to the table. It is truly a team experience.

11. Virtual Murder Mystery

We live in an age of true crime podcasts and documentaries in which everyone loves to play detective. Chances are your team is no exception! A virtual murder mystery team building activity is probably exactly what your employees have been waiting for. And we simply cannot recommend any more highly than our virtual murder mystery games in which your participants get to become the investigators, trying to solve a crime. Throughout the 90-minute experience they will get to interrogate five suspects (played by incredible actors) and review evidence to crack the case!

It all begins on Zoom where a lead investigator outlines the basic details of the case. Then, participants become investigators and grill our live suspects to gain all of the other information they have to offer! Ask them where they were that night, who they think did it…and try to catch them in a lie! You get scored for figuring out who did it, but also for other details like motive and catching suspects in a lie. At the end, we bring everyone back together and announce our winning team! In the age of popular obsession with true crime, this virtual team building idea is a hit with absolutely everyone.

12. Virtual Bingo

You don’t need to be in a Vegas bingo hall to experience this fun game with your team! Virtual team building bingo is a great and easy way for your team to get together and bond with a little competition. You can host one quick round for a quick virtual team building icebreaker or host multiple rounds for a full event. You can choose how much time you want to spend playing this game, and you can add prizes to up the ante, from gift cards to an extra day of PTO!

This virtual team building idea can be executed yourself, especially if you are only playing one round. But if you don’t want to have to organize, create bingo boards, or hire an emcee, we can do all of that for you. At Escapely, our virtual bingo comes with virtual bingo boards for each participant, slides displaying the calls, and a lively emcee to make the whole event exciting. If you want a custom event, we can include your logo on the slides and even work in custom answers like buzz words about your company or photos of your executive team. It is also an extremely cost-effective offering for large groups because you will only need one host regardless of group size.

Whether you choose to manage the event yourself or hire someone to take care of it for you, bingo is a virtual team building idea for work that everyone can play with minimal instruction and that adds some excitement and competition to a meeting or event.

13. Personality Tests

Workplaces are interesting places in that coworkers do not choose each other based on personality the way friend groups do. Because of this they include a myriad of personalities that must find common ground and work together every day. The best team building activities help employees get to know their coworkers on a deeper level and understand how they operate. Because of this, personality tests are one of the best online team building activities for conference calls. Imagine getting to take a deep dive into how everyone on your team works and communicates.

First, ask everyone to take the personality test in advance of the meeting. Then, go over the results of the test in a team building discussion. It is possible to do this virtual team building activity internally or to hire a facilitator to help. If you choose to host this yourself, here are some of the most popular personality tests:

–The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator breaks down 16 personality types. There is a paid version that your team can use, and you can also use this free version.

–True Colors groups people into one of four colors to dive further into what makes each one tick and how they interact with others. This can help teams learn how to best work together. You can take the color personality test here.

–Another option for a professional personality test is the Big Five personality test. There is a free version that you can take.

14. Donut Pair Up Calls Through Slack

Want to help employees connect with coworkers they don’t regularly interact with through work? Donut on Slack is like a dating app for work colleagues. It’s a great way to randomly encourage interaction amongst more distant teams. If your team uses Slack regularly, this is an easy option to roll out. Donut sets up matches at random and the matches take it from there – they can decide whether to meet in person or virtually.

Donut takes the awkwardness out of it by suggesting a prompt for both parties to answer, helping start the conversation naturally. For example, it might ask, “What’s your favorite season?” or “What is the last book you read?” so that people don’t have to worry about starting the conversation on their own. If individuals have a heavy workload or big project coming up, they can always take a break from Donut and temporarily opt-out. While it is a great option for in-person teams as well, it is particularly helpful for remote teams. Donut allows participants to meet and be prompted to chat with their coworkers in a casual setting. We highly recommend implementing this as part of your team’s virtual team building ideas!

15. Virtual Yoga Sessions

Team workouts are a bit controversial because so many people have different physical abilities and limitations. If you still want to try something physical as a team bonding exercise, yoga is a great choice. It is doable by people of any ability level and most injuries or limitations can be accommodated. It is also a healthy alternative to an event centered around eating and drinking! If there are time constraints or it’s hard to coordinate busy schedules, you have complete control over the length of the session.

One of the benefits of a virtual yoga session is that everyone can participate no matter where they are. Simply hop on Zoom (or any other platform of your choosing) and create a meeting to have a yoga team building event. Additionally, if you have employees who are stressed this can also serve as a way for them to unwind and re-energize before getting back to work. 

We recommend checking with your team to see whether anyone is trained as a yoga instructor. If not, there are plenty of companies out there who can host this for you and your team. One of the most popular is Exubrancy, a company devoted to employee wellbeing in the workplace. They handle everything from booking to staffing and can even help implement monthly sessions for your team.

16. Virtual Book Club

Have you ever heard your coworkers say they wish they read more? We hear this around our office a lot! One of the most low cost and easy events to set up with your team is a virtual book club. Create a calendar so that everyone knows the deadline to have the book completed, and let everyone on the team rotate making picks. The sessions can be easily led by other members of the group in a fun, casual setting – we recommend that the person who chose the book leads the discussion! Because book clubs are so popular, many books have dedicated questions at the end to help prompt discussion.

One of the benefits of a virtual book club is that it is easy to postpone as needed if any projects or emergencies arise. Also, as the organizer, there is little to no preparation. Most of all, with rotating book choices, it is a fun way to expose the team to books and topics they may not have ever experienced otherwise.

Food and Drink Virtual Team Building Activities  

1. Virtual Office Happy Hour

Are you looking for an event to bring your team together after hours? Somewhere for your coworkers to bond together outside of work? Happy hour is probably the best known virtual team building activity out there. And for remote teams, they are even easier. They provide a relaxing place to connect and build relationships, are usually very simple to set up, and are not met with many barriers since you don’t even need to leave the house!

Once you have a date, we recommend making an invite and be sure to include the link everyone will be using to attend the virtual happy hour. Encourage attendees to participate in the happy hour by showing up with their drinks and snacks of choice! (This could also make for a great conversion topic at the event!) If you are feeling extra ambitious, you can ship drinks and snacks to each attendee so that they don’t even need to pick anything up. At Escapely, we can even provide a mixologist who can teach everyone how to make a few cocktails.

While virtual happy hour is enough fun on its own, you can up the ante by planning some games or activities. Refer to our ice breaker section above for some simple and fun ideas. No matter how complex or simple you choose to keep your virtual office happy hour, it is sure to be a great event!

2. Virtual Wine Tasting

Our next virtual team building idea really takes the edge off of a long workday. Most companies have some employees who consider themselves well-versed in a wine list, and some employees who love wine but have no idea what they’re drinking. A virtual wine tasting appeals to both! It’s an opportunity to learn about wine, how it is made, and taste some different varietals. At Escapely, we even provide pairing suggestions at all of our virtual wine tastings.

At our virtual wine tasting team building events, kits are shipped directly to your house. The hardest part is convincing your team to wait to open the wine until the day of the event! Generally, your sommelier will take you on a journey to discover the wine-making process from start to finish. And if you have some members of your team who are not drinkers, no problem! They can still enjoy the experience with the non-alcoholic wines we provide!

3. Virtual Cocktail Making Class

When looking for virtual team building ideas,  you will come across a lot of virtual cocktail making classes – and this is for good reason. It allows team members to express their creativity in the most delicious way possible. It’s a team building activity that combines the fun of happy hour with the self-expression of a how-to class. And better yet, employees get to craft the delicious cocktails from the comfort of their own home.

At Escapely, our virtual mixology class team building events include a cocktail making kit mailed to each participant’s home before the event date. On the day of the event, they will be guided through the course by a cocktail making expert. Participants experience the magic of crafting cocktails from their homes, all while bonding with their coworkers and learning fun ways to enhance their cocktails! While drinks are being created, team members get to also learn about the origin and history of each cocktail.

Are you worried that some team members won’t be able to participate in this fun team building activity due to not drinking alcohol? All of our events feature instructions on how to make each cocktail a mocktail and we can even feature a mocktail as one of the cocktails demonstrated. This event adds some pizzazz to any meeting and is also one of the best virtual holiday team building activities.

4. Virtual Beer Brewing Class

For those who don’t drink wine, our next virtual team building idea is an alternative – a virtual beer brewing class! Gather up all of your team members and incorporate beer making and drinking into your next virtual team building activity. Not only do you learn the origins and history of how to make beer, but you get to taste your creations too! Whether you drink beer or not, it’s a guaranteed good time for everyone involved.

You can check out a bunch of fun beer brewing and tasting classes for your future virtual team building activities. While beer might sound easy, we do not recommend trying to host this one yourself. It is easy to sign up for a class that will mail each participant their own beer kit before the event date. An expert will teach participants how to create beer while tasting their own creations from the comfort of their own home. Not only will your team learn a great deal about beer, but they will also strengthen their team bond through this incredibly dynamic team building experience!

5.  Virtual Chocolate Tasting

Who doesn’t love chocolate? That is almost all that needs to be said. Hosting a virtual chocolate tasting team building event is not only delicious, but will win you a lot of points amongst your team! It’s yummy, but you will also get to learn about the history of chocolate, how it is made, and what makes each flavor profile unique.

At Escapely, our virtual chocolate tasting events include an elegant kit delivered to each participant and a chocolatier to walk you through each of the chocolates. From the zesty orange chocolates to the rich decadent dark chocolates there will be a flavor for everyone. Afterwards, everyone can stay on and chat about which flavor profiles they enjoyed and which chocolate pieces surprised them. Overall, a virtual chocolate tasting is a sweet experience for all!

6. Virtual Cooking Classes

I think in a world of differences, food is something we can all agree on. A virtual cooking classes team building event is a great way to indulge in a shared interest – eating – while also learning some new skills! There are two ways to host a virtual cooking class: internally within the team or with an external chef.

To host an event internally, ask for volunteers! Every team has people with special recipes they love to cook. By asking your team to share these with their coworkers, they will share their culture, stories, and so much more. You can even make it a monthly tradition so that everyone gets a chance. The designated individual should send out the ingredients needed beforehand so everyone can gather them. If anyone prefers not to cook, they can also watch their coworker prepare a dish and use the time to socialize with others on their team.

If your team isn’t interested in sharing their own recipes, a chef is one of the most delicious virtual team building ideas. Elevent, for example, offers a lot of different virtual cooking class options. Be sure to check out their full list of classes. All materials needed can be shipped directly to each participant. Whether you choose to host this event yourself or share recipes amongst the team, you might be surprised by the amount of joy that comes from cooking with your colleagues.

7. Virtual Cheese Tasting

If you have ever thought that having a virtual cheese tasting with your colleagues sounded gouda (we couldn’t resist), then you need this virtual team building activity in your life! It is extremely simple yet highly rewarding. First, you can pick out the various kinds of cheese that you would like to sample. Many companies can ship these directly to your house!

In a virtual cheese tasting, you will learn about the flavors of the different cheeses and what pairs well with each one. Since the format is very laid back, everyone can ask questions and engage with the host. If your group is a bit on the quieter side, then they can hang back and listen to the presentation. We guarantee that your team will find out facts about cheeses that they may never have heard before. Let’s just put it this way…if they weren’t before, everyone on your team will emerge from the event a curd nerd!

8. Virtual Snack Tasting

Who doesn’t love to snack in the office and throughout the workday? Why not combine this love with your virtual team building ideas to create an event out of it? I don’t know if you have noticed, but food bonds people together. Most events involve snacking in some form, but it is usually left on the sidelines. At a virtual snack tasting, employees can hang out and chat while letting snacks take center stage!

Snackmagic offers tastings that allow coworkers to have a very social hour together. You can curate your own boxes that you send to your team and even make it a complete surprise if you would like. This virtual team building idea for work brings an aspect of water cooler talk into the virtual world. Allow your employees to have some popcorn while they chat about their progress on a project, or just indulge in some candies while talking about their upcoming vacation.

9. Virtual Snack Boxes

If your team is in a time crunch, a great way to designate a virtual team building activity without blocking off anyone’s calendar is by sending them a virtual snack box. In a physical office, people love raiding the snack pantry. Now, it’s possible to give employees this perk in a virtual environment! For those who work remotely and don’t get to experience going into the office, this small gesture can make a huge difference. Also, if you’re having trouble coordinating a time for everyone to gather, sending a virtual snack box is a virtual team building idea that will be discussed afterward in meetings and on conference calls.

Snack Magic allows your team to customize their own boxes for a special added touch. You can check out what snacks they have to offer. By allowing team members to design their own virtual snack box, you will make them feel engaged and appreciated. These snack boxes are a must get for those looking to have a yummy snack at the office!
