The holidays are a wonderful time for celebrating and gathering, and being a fully remote team should be no exception. There are many fun options for virtual holiday celebrations, and our team landed on a gingerbread house competition this year. As a team of engineers, designers, and strategists, this was right up our alley.
To spice it up, we found a few different styles of gingerbread house kits from one retailer: a Barn, Camper and Candyland house. The team chose their own style, we coordinated the purchase, and the competition allowed for any additions. Some of the gingerbread houses collapsed under pressure, some of them were impressively built just like the display, and some of them were imagined into incredibly unique and creative structures.
We voted on three winners who received prizes, but the magic of this event was really in the anticipation of the competition and sharing our displays. Being able to step away from our screens and use our creativity and skills in a fun way was a gift in itself. We would definitely recommend this holiday event 10/10 and will be doing again.
Even if a gingerbread house competition is not quite your team’s style, finding time to gather your team to celebrate the holidays is a great way to boost morale, lift spirits and end the year on a high note.
