Hosting Family Fun Days for your team and their families are a fantastic way to foster a sense of community, boost employee morale, and create lasting memories. At Awesome Entertainment, we understand the importance of designing an event that is not only fun, but engaging and memorable. In this post, we'll share our top tips on how to create an unforgettable Corporate Family Fun Day that will leave everyone smiling.
Top Tips to Create an Awesome Family Fun Day
Identify the Objective(s): Before diving into the planning process, it's crucial to identify the objective/s/ of your Corporate Family Fun Day. Is it to celebrate company achievements, enhance employee engagement, or promote a family-friendly work environment? By clearly defining the goals, it will help you tailor the event.
Select the Location/Venue: You most likely have heard the phrase: location, location, location when talking about real estate! But did you know, location is equally important when designing an event? Why? Because the location sets the stage for the entire event. Consider selecting a location that can accommodate the activities, food and entertainment you would like to have.
Activities: At Awesome Entertainment we understand the significance of providing a wide range of engaging activities suitable for all age groups and abilities. Bounce houses, inflatable obstacle courses, carnival games, face painting, and arts and crafts stations are always crowd favorites. Including activities that encourage team-building and friendly competition, such as tug-of-war or relay races, can further enhance the overall experience. It’s also important to know your audience and have activities that can accommodate guests with any sensory or mobility issues. At Awesome Entertainment we are leaders in providing activities that promote inclusivity. For instance, our battery-operated Trackless Train Ride is wheelchair accessible, so guests using physical accommodations, such as transport chairs, walkers and canes, can enjoy the ride. Our new Malibu Beach Derby Wheelchair Accessible Obstacle Course is specifically designed to be accessible for guests who travel by wheelchair or stroller, or those who need special sensory consideration.
Entertainment: Entertainment plays a pivotal role in keeping attendees engaged throughout the day. We can provide an awesome selection of professionally trained performers, such as magicians, jugglers, fire dancers, stilt walkers, character impersonators and more, who can roam around the event, interact with guests, and create an immersive atmosphere.
Food and Refreshments: Good food is a cornerstone of any successful event. Arrange a variety of food options through our Concessions Catering to cater to different tastes and dietary preferences. Some of the fan favorites that we offer include cotton candy, popcorn, snow cones, and mini melts ice cream. We also have everything to satisfy bigger appetites! We have you covered for options like hot dogs, pretzels and nachos. As a reminder, don't forget to include vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options to ensure inclusivity.
Giveaways: To create lasting memories, consider setting up a traditional Photo Booth or a Social Media Photo Booth or even a Video Photo Booth! You may also consider setting up an activity area with Spin Art, Stuff a Bear plush or Spin Art Tees!
Accommodations: To ensure the comfort and convenience of guests, it's essential to provide appropriate accommodations such as tables, chairs, and tents. Ample seating arrangements are necessary for guests to relax, enjoy meals, and engage in activities comfortably. In addition, if your event is outdoors, consider the weather conditions and provide tents to offer shade and protection from the elements.
Family Fun Days require a lot of planning and logistics but they are rewarding and FUN! And you know what? We have professional event planners on staff that can help you every step of the way because we understand the importance of creating an experience that brings joy to everyone involved.
