Fun team building activities

Art Jamming

Fancy letting your inner Picasso out while having a drink and jamming to the sounds of Despacito? This is a personal favourite activity of mine. The vendor has a bar at their premises and even has an inhouse Italian chef (yes he is from Italy) who can make really good Italian food! Typically its 4 persons to a shared canvas, and packages can be customized accordingly to include food & beverages. Each art jam session typically lasts around 2.5 hours(including socializing and meal time.)

Laser Tag

This is a highly and I repeat HIGHLY COMPETITIVE activity! Bring your A-GAME if you want to win this. Usually a maximum of 24-27 players per mission. Up to 3 team bases can be set up for team battles and there is no minimum number of players. Make sure you choose your team members wisely as a certain amount of strategic thinking is needed to win this! Extremely fun but beware of colleagues getting violent! Dress comfortably and wear sneakers.

Mini Golf

Never expected mini golf to be a fun activity but it is! This venue has 3 courses x 9 holes / course. Choose the number of courses you want. The venue comes equipped with bars on both levels of its premises. The fun part of this mini golf venue is the themed golf courses they have(from Pacman to Games of Throne to Crappy Gilmore!) They have VIP booths, 1m long pizzas as well as some games (XL Jenga). Overall, it makes for a fun day/evening activity!

Leather Workshop

Participants get to create their own leather products and take them home.

Combat Archery Tag – available in Neon Archery as well

Welcome your inner Katniss or Robin Hood and play your hearts out! The standard Outdoor and Indoor Combat Archery Tag experience offers an exciting platform to bond and encourage teamwork with your friends, family and/or colleagues.

Mixology Classes

We transform your office or offsite venue into a full-on mobile mixology lab. Your group will have fun learning to shake, stir and swizzle with the pros as they absorb the finer points of cocktail creation.  

Chocolate Making

Our hands-on chocolate workshop is a marvelous way to spend time working and playing as a team. Learn to make show-stopping truffles filled with anything from coconut or framboise to champagne cream. Yes, success is sweet.

Resin Art

Now you can discover this therapeutic art form from the experts by signing up for a workshop. All materials are included for you to create beautiful works of resin art that you can bring home. Only non-toxic, high-quality resin art supplies are used in all our workshops.

Graffiti Art

There’s no getting around it – spray painting is just plain fun. And it gets even better when a group gets the chance to do it with a shared sense of purpose. Creativity and cooperation flow freely in this team building art project, whether you’re covering one of our giant canvasses or an actual wall (get permission first!) Highly customizable, and highly involving.

Masterchef Sessions

An all-time favourite where participants compete in a series of exciting, challenging and fun activities as they progress along their journey of being Master Chefs!

Macaroons Painting

You won’t be a starving artist with our unique Macaron Painting class, where you’ll get to make art works and even eat them! 

Candle making – scented / gel / soy candles

Come together with your colleagues at work and bond through candle making! Team building has never been so innovative. Our Candle Making Workshops are not only about creating your own candles but also crafting character, leadership, teamwork and creativity. 

Terrarium Workshop

Our Terrarium Making workshop gives participants an opportunity to unleash their creativity and designed their Terrariums. We provide pebbles, succulents and mosses, among other decorative materials, for you to step out of your comfort zone in producing a beautiful nature ornament. At the end of the day, participants are allowed to bring their creations home! Placed it at your office or home to instantly brighten your day!

Pour Acrylic Workshop

Known for its incredibly mesmerizing process and gorgeous results, Acrylic Pour Art is the coolest art form in town! Loved by art enthusiasts and beginners alike, it’s suitable for all ages regardless of art background.

Clay Workshop

Participants will use clay to create all kinds of different art pieces. For example, this could be anything from flowers and dragons (like what you might find in a theme park) or even cute little cartoon characters! There are no limits to your imagination – whatever you can think of, we can design it.

Triggertronics

In this challenge, individual teams work with the material provided to build a working Rube Goldberg’s model – or simply put an Actuator. The activity requires them to think intuitively with available resources and create a self-running mechanism. There being no manual touches in the actuator, it has to be a series of actuation from one table to another by connecting them ingeniously, in order for the mechanism to work.
