Halloween is coming soon and it falls on the 31st of October every year. We previously organised a Halloween-themed team building for one of the multi-national corporations from U.S.A. that has a branch in Penang, Malaysia.
One of the activities for the team building included a Halloween costume-making game. Participants were divided into groups of 4. They were then given materials such as cloth, glass papers, newspapers, strings, marker pens and face paint to work with. The participants were to create a Halloween costume within a given time frame.
This costume is to be worn by one of the participants and to be showcased during a catwalk session which took place after the costume making session.
The participants in each group have to discuss and make the costume together. This enhances their co-operation skills and team spirit. Talk about spirit during Halloween but this team spirit is good for team building.
The colours of the materials varied for each group. The materials were packed into different bags, which the groups then drew lots to see which bag they would get. The groups were also given a chance to send one of their participants to negotiate with any another groups to exchange materials.
The participants were given time to practise their walk after the costume making session. They were to create a walk that would depict their costume well and to walk the catwalk individually.
After that, the participants walked another round of catwalk with their group members. The group with the most creative walk will be given higher marks.
The group that won this game was the group with the highest mark in total for the costume, the catwalk and the overall group co-operation.
The participants had a lot of fun and were seen laughing throughout the sessions. This was just one of the games held during the team building session that day. We conducted other activities and games during that event. If you are interested to hold your team building event, please do not hesitate to contact us to organise for you. We can also conduct games for your events, which can be an activity for your event which can be other types of events apart from team building events. It can make your event more interesting, fun and let your participants have a good time.
