Top 8 Virtual Easter Team Building Activities in 2023
Since the beginning of COVID-19 quarantines, something like a virtual Easter celebration no longer sounded like a crazy idea. Many people around the world have had to undergo the transition from offline to online where celebrating holidays with friends, colleagues and family was concerned. And after two years of this, most of us have already grown accustomed to these conditions. Despite the fact that most quarantine restrictions have been lifted, online meetings and celebrations are still one of the most convenient ways for people far away from their loved ones and colleagues to spend quality time together.
Today, many companies are allowing their employees to continue working remotely. In such conditions, celebrating Easter with your team may be a bit more complicated than in previous years.
Or perhaps not? Let’s look at different ways to organize a virtual Easter team-building event that brings your team together and delivers tons of fun.
How to prepare for a virtual Easter party
A virtual Easter includes almost everything that an in-person celebration has to offer with the exception of your team’s physical presence. People gather virtually to share a meal, have conversations, and participate in games and fun activities together.
Modern meeting platforms help organize online parties in the best way possible. For example, you can host a party in special 3D full-featured online virtual spaces for teams of ten to thousands of people.
It is possible to brand this space, communicate through video chats, play games, and take part in various activities. Such spaces allow for immersing employees in a real team-building experience that is so much more than just regular conferencing or live streaming.
8 Best Easter virtual team building activities
1. Icebreaker questions
Q&A sessions can greatly help colleagues get to know each other better. This type of activity is better to do at the beginning of your virtual Easter party since it warms up the atmosphere among your team. Appropriate questions for team building on virtual Easter are as follows:
- What is your favorite Easter tradition?
- How old were you when you found out the Easter bunny wasn’t real?
- What is your personal record for egg hunting?
Find more ice-breaking questions ideas here.
2. Take a picture
This icebreaker game is best used when people first arrive at your virtual party. Ask participants to take a picture of a particular topic. During Easter, these can include photos of eggs, chocolate bunnies, and some other decorations.
Give your group five minutes to take photos and post them for all participants to see. Let your teammates comment on their photos and then discuss the pictures you see and if anything stands out as nostalgic or sentimental.
3. Virtual Easter egg hunt
One of the most popular activities for Easter is egg hunting. Luckily, this game can also be played online. Virtual 3D spaces are ideal places to hide and search for eggs. Just hide eggs in different areas of your virtual space and ask participants to search for them. This game is even more interesting if attendees find the eggs but have to figure out ways to reach them to collect them.
Mixology is a great way to bring your employees together and fully engage them in the celebration.
Decide which cocktails you want to make at your party. Drinks can be both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. If you’re considering hiring professional bartenders, ask them which cocktails are easier to make at home.
There are a lot of Easter cocktail options. These can be lavender lemonade, chocolate egg martinis, strawberry mimosas, and so on. Once the virtual mixology activity is over – you can drink together and share your thoughts on the results.
5. Virtual Easter Music Bingo
Virtual Music Bingo is one of the most popular activities for virtual parties. The game is even suitable for big companies. There is no limit on the number of people that can participate.
In this game, every participant gets a Music Bingo card with a list of the most popular tunes. When your guests get a full house of songs, they become winners and get BINGO. For Easter, try to prepare songs related to the holiday. These can include music from films or just popular songs associated with the holiday.
6. Easter Trivia
Virtual trivia is a specific type of game played online where competitors are asked a variety of different questions across any number of topics. Guessing the answers and learning lots of random new facts when guessing incorrectly is guaranteed fun for everyone. A virtual trivia game is like a quiz with easy facts and questions that help bring new teammates together and strengthen the bonds of a team.
Try choosing questions related to the Easter holiday. These can be:
- Easter always falls between which two dates? (March 22 and April 25)
- What did Jesus and his apostles eat at the Last Supper? (Bread and wine)
- The first Easter eggs were dyed in what color? (Red)
7. Virtual Easter Brunch
A virtual brunch can be even more interesting online when every team member has prepared a meal of their choice. You can also email some specific Easter recipes like frittatas, Easter bread, carrot cake, deviled eggs, potatoes, ham, chocolate desserts, and so on. Choose a time for your team’s brunch and come together to share what you’ve made before eating it.
8. Team photo
This activity tops off just about every list of must-have virtual activities for virtual parties. People like to take group photos, both virtually and at meetings. Attendees can make this activity more interesting by making faces, bringing pets, and making funny poses and gestures.
Before the celebration, try handing out some objects that each attendee should have in the photo. Maybe someone will dress as a bunny or a chicken? Be creative.
A few more important moments
Try celebrating your virtual Easter at work with your remote teams by gathering in 3D virtual spaces. Choose from several activities that you can all do together. Some of them can be decided beforehand and some organized as a surprise. You can also hire professionals to facilitate the activity if needed. Don’t forget to record the session to have it in the cloud for memories. Enjoy it!
