Family fun days have become a popular way for businesses to reward their employees for a job well done, and they have proven to be quite a success. So if you’re thinking of how you can make your employees happy, organising a corporate family fun day is one of the best things you can do – and it doesn’t even have to take much of an effort, as you can easily plan it. It not only fosters a great atmosphere – it also allows your staff to spend a wonderful time with their kids. But if you’re wondering how you can plan one that’s enjoyable for young and old, here’s a list of the best ideas for your corporate family fun day: from catering to entertainment and more.
For the catering
The food at your event will make a difference, and the good news is it doesn’t have to be all that expensive, either. The concept behind family fun days is a day of excitement and thrills in a casual setting, so you don’t have to lay out the hors d’ oeuvres – it’s all about giving them food they can enjoy.
You can hire food trucks; for example, food trucks can offer everything from burgers to hot dogs to fish and chips and more. You can also have a barbecue (which is exceptionally brilliant in the summer), with various meats and seafood. You can even create a unique theme for your corporate family fun day and make it a carnival or funfair event, complete with food stalls serving candy floss, popcorn, ice cream, and so on. It’s easy to find a fairground stall hire company that can offer all these – including fabulous rides and attractions that are sure to wow your employees
For the entertainment
When it comes to entertainment, remember that you have kids to think about – but it’s not that difficult to make children happy if you have the right entertainment. Of course, you can go for the aforementioned carnival event, where the rides, games, and attractions can already delight your employees and their broods. Why not incorporate a bouncy castle as well or a mobile climbing wall for the more adventurous? You can hire stilt walkers and magicians, clowns, face painters, and balloon makers in terms of other entertainment. For the adults, you can hire a DJ and have a disco ball.
You can even offer an office tour if your work is exciting for the kids (a police department or fire brigade, for example) – it’s an excellent way for the kids to get to know where their parents spend most of their days!
For giveaways and souvenirs
A corporate family fun day wouldn’t be complete without a few giveaways and souvenirs, and for this, you can provide the kids with goody bags filled with candy and small toys. Here’s a tip: give the goody bags to the children as they get to the venue; this will entertain them throughout the day. If you’re having your affair during the Christmas season, small presents for the kids will also be appreciated. For the adults, you can offer swag items – branded souvenirs like bags, pens, sunglasses, USBs, etc. You can search online for companies that specialise in souvenirs and giveaways and have them print them for you with your company logo.
