Women have so many responsibilities in today’s world. From caring for the family and home to climbing the corporate ladder, they don’t budget in the time to stay connected to their peers. It’s a shame that ladies don’t get enough girl time. Well, that’s about to change. A group activity is the perfect way to connect with your girlfriends.
According to Terrapin Adventures, team activities build more than teamwork; they build lasting relationships. To further enhance the girl power behind your team activity, consider incorporating physical activity. If your ladies are into it, sports like football could be an ideal way to build the team. Separate your girls into two teams and have them work together to win the game. You could also have everyone outside (or inside) to solve a scavenger hunt. Again, form teams, give each team a list and let them at it. Prizes are always an incentive, but the real goal is for the women to work together to find all the items. Your activities don’t have to be costly or overly time-consuming.
Art makes the world a more beautiful and wondrous place, so your team building activity should be a part of that. Get your girlfriends together, and create some artwork. Because art encompasses so many different disciplines and mediums, there is a wide variety of enjoyable artistic activities that allow participants to explore their inner creativity, according to Paint Cabin. For a truly bonding experience, break your ladies into small groups to create their own puzzle artwork. Each group is given a piece of canvas with a different outline. Every group must get artsy and cover the canvas in their own designs. Once everyone is finished, the teams connect their pieces to create a bigger picture. Team-building activities don’t have to be expensive. You all could craft your own team mural. Grab some canvas, and let the girls have fun! Everyone contributes to the piece to create a beautiful work of art. Remember, art is all about self-expression.
Cooking, like art, is incredibly personal, and it’s such a great way to get all your girls engaged. According to Parties That Cook, there are many services that provide everything you need for a fun team-building cooking event. While all locations are different, there’s something for everyone. A great example of an event with cooking is to form teams, equip them with a few ingredients and have them work together to create a delicious dish. Ideas will have to be exchanged in order to reach a common goal. Alternatively, you could rent a commercial location, so you and your team can each cook for a potluck get-together. Try picking a fun theme everyone will love and assigning teams. The teams, which should be small, can work together to design their dishes for the party. Cooking can be for anyone. Remember, though, that people have different nutritional requirements. You should always make sure to accommodate the women in your group, so their needs are incorporated. Everyone can bond over delicious and nutritious foods. Cooking meals properly is a process, and you should allow plenty of time for everyone to finish.
Women deserve to have the opportunity to build relationships and cooperation with one another. Whether you’re looking to include physical activity, art, or even cooking for your girls’ night, there are so many choices for powerful team-building activities. Always include all the girls, and share their successes!
