Whoever said playtime was meant only for kids? As the greatest philosopher of all time, Plato, once said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation”.
As children, we were often encouraged to play as it is proven to help the mind grow, improve communication skills and pushes us to think in creative ways. However, studies have proven that playtime doesn’t have to stop with childhood. Even though our work life tends to involve a lot of creativity and communication to solve problems, a little fun in the form of games can help coworkers get to know each other better as well as reduce tension and stress and allow the mind to refresh itself.
So here’s your excuse to buy that rotating triple barrel precision shot Nerf Gun blaster you’ve been eyeing in the toy section. We’re not kidding. We never kid about having fun! Firing foam darts is a valuable team building activity that can actually increase productivity by providing employee fun.
The Nordic Intent team decided to change the monotony of a regular workday with a fun game using these Nerf Guns. The co-workers engaged themselves in making use of the opportunity to trigger little toys at each other creating a very relaxed and friendly vibe.
The Nerf Gun is a fun, new, all-inclusive “toy” designed to keep the energy flowing especially on mundane days. The gun propels styrofoam darts. Toys in hand, everyone becomes a kid again.
The Nordic Intent team has previously held many such fun sessions and always finds greater pleasure in introducing more, now and then. Click here if you’re keen on catching up on some of the fun team building activities we’ve held at our organisation in the past and want to know more.
