Working might not seem like all fun and games, but sometimes you need to be silly and make work fun. There are numerous activities you can integrate into the job world. If your workplace is very close-knit, that opens the door to even more actions.
Start with the Fundamentals. Buy a big glass jar with a lid and also make clear this chocolate isn’t suitable for eating (a huge sign on the front might help make this clear). Have everybody guess how many things are in the jar. You may fill it with virtually anything, but Hershey’s Kisses appear to create the most sense. It’s possible to fill with a mix of Kisses (hugs, regular, etc) or with only the classic chocolate kiss. In any event, have people guess how many kisses are from the jar. Their guesses must be written on a slip of paper and put into a box close to the jar. The winner gets the jar of kisses on Valentine’s Day. If your workplace is somewhat more generous, a little dinner gift certificate could accompany the jar.
Create Bingo cards with various Valentine’s Day pictures on them. There might be a heart, a cupid, a few kissing, etc. These are clip art pieces which can easily be printed off the pc. Each day, somebody will call out a square. It may be “HEART!” And everybody marks their bingo card. Start the game perhaps 3 weeks or so before Valentine’s Day so somebody has a chance to win before Valentine’s Day. This is something that will take literally 30 minutes daily but will be enjoyable and is guaranteed to create some ridiculous tension. The winner gets a prize. Perhaps free lunch in the company lunchroom, or a kiss from the supervisor, or anything else silly.
In case you’ve got a couple cooks in your office, it is possible to suggest a “center a day”. Each day, a person must bring in something shaped like a heart, a food thing, that is. 1 day it could be cookies and another pancake. A really original thinker might figure out how to deliver a high-value lasagna or something different. To make this extra entertaining and challenging, you might require the foods actually be good for your heart (therefore, cookies might be out, but heart-shaped chocolates?
Why don’t you utilize the holiday of love to talk about your thoughts on your enjoys? Have everyone write a quick story of how they fulfilled their spouse or husband and put it in a jar. They shouldn’t include names and should not identify their partner either. One day at lunch, when everybody is sitting together (this could be in a Valentine’s Day supper with your homemade goodies), read the stories and have everyone try to guess which one belongs to that office friend. Some of the stories may make you think it really happened to someone else. Some of the stories are surprising and at times even funny,
Since email is frequently the communication of selection in offices, have some fun with a Valentine’s Day email quiz. It is possible to ask historical questions regarding the vacation or questions about co-workers. Some questions may look like this:
- Who married their spouse in Yosemite National Park?
- What exactly does the word Valentine mean?
- Which of these animals mate for life? (You’ll want to provide multiple alternative answers for this one, naturally.)
