My research shows there are two different dates for “Fun At Work Day”. I obviously have chosen the 5th of April to celebrate.
Contrary to popular opinion you can have fun days at work, even if you work at a stereotypical stuffy place.
Here are a few activities to do –
1 - Make everyone address you by your pro-wrestling name. Use the pro wrestling Diva Name Generator and the Male Name Generator to find your Pro-Westler name. Mine's “Sister Chick”
2 - Put your trash can on your desk and label it “Inbox.”
3 - Have a paper airplane contest. Whoever's plane goes the farthest gets an extra 15 minute break.
4 - Bring in a board game and play it at lunch
5 - Conduct your own desk chair Olympics
6 - Bring in Trivial Pursuit cards and ask people questions. If they get it right they win a piece of candy.
7 – Have today's meetings out of the board room - at a park, picnic site or a bowling alley
8 - Have a scavenger hunt.
These are just a few ideas to get you started. Click on the "This Way To The Fun" image for more activities to do.
