Food lovers are good people to be with. They are generally accommodating and happy people. They love to share what little food they have to other food lovers like them. They usually don’t have any issues relating to others like them because they can relate to them through their common interest – food. The best way therefore to develop teamwork among them is to let them participate in team building games involving food. They will not only interact with other people but they’ll enjoy food in the games. Some of the team building games for food lovers includes the following games.
Whistle the Polvoron Away
This is funny game that will make your participants laugh. The participants are first divided into groups with equal members. Then they are to form a line, which each line representing the group. When the facilitator gives the signal, the first person in the line runs to the table and tries to consume 3 packed polvoron. When he has consumed the 3 polvorons, he then tries to whistle. When he successfully whistles, he goes back to his group. The next person on the line will do the same step until all the members of the team were able to perform. The first group whose members were able to complete the task will win the game. This game is funny because when polvoron is not digested at once and when a person tries to whistle, bits of the polvoron will fly out from the participant’s mouth. Everyone will surely enjoy this game just like food lovers would.
The Blind Porridge
The objective of this game is again to have fun while promoting team communication and team work. The participants are first asked to look for a partner. Both partners will be blindfolded and given a bowl of porridge and a pair of spoon. When the facilitator gives the signal to start, the pair will try to feed each other. The member must feed his partner and not himself. If a participant will feed himself then he will be disqualified. The first pair to consume their bowl of porridge will win the game. This is a funny game since the participants are blindfolded they will have a messy face and end up messing the porridge unto his partner’s face. The facilitator has to make sure that the participants can clean themselves up after the activity because surely this activity would be very messy. Even though the participants will be very messy, in the end they will surely enjoy the game.
Dive for Apples
In this game, a big basin is needed where the apples float in the water inside the basin. After the participants have been grouped, they will select a participant that will represent the group. The representatives will pick the apples from the basin using their teeth with their hands behind their back. If he successfully picks an apple he returns to the line and another member of the group will try to pick up from the basin as well. If he is able to pick or he decides to quit he goes back to the group and another member will take his place. Only one member of each group is allowed to pick up from the basin. Since this is a timed game, the group with the most number of apples picked up will win the game. Just like the blind porridge game, this could make the participants wet so facilitators have to make sure that they are able to change after the game.
In this activity, what is needed is team work and cooperation and a way to develop a personal choice to get you involved in every activity. There are no specific guidelines in this activity as long as after the allotted time they will stop cooking. The ingredients will be provided and it’s up to the group what dish to prepare under a limited time. After they are done with their dish, a representative of each group will what the name of the dish is, why they choose this dish and how as a team where they able to cook the dish. They could also relate how each member has contributed in making the cuisine and how the food has become a representation of their team. The rest of the groups will also present in the same manner. At the end of the last group the finished products will then be placed together and everybody gets to taste the other food. This would surely be a wonderful experience for everyone who loves food.
With these team building games, not only will food lovers will not only be full of treats and heavenly tastes, they get to bond with other people who also love food. At the end of the day, they learn team values but at the same time they had fun and learned this things over food – what more can they ask for?
