If the snow is coming down outside, then you need some perfect team building activities that will embrace it. These fun ideas will have everyone forgetting about the weather and having a ton of fun!

 

Snowball fight!

The easiest, most cost-effective, and definitely the most fun activity of all is a good ol’ fashioned snowball fight. You’d be surprised at just how great this game is for getting people full of energy. There is just nothing quite like throwing a ball of snow as fast as you can and trying to hit your friends with it. You can add in some extra rules to make it even more fun. Try making it elimination style where if you get hit you’re out, or try adding in a home base where you can’t be hit.
