Five Must-have Company Picnic Games

Feb 1, 2008
If you've already compiled the list of everything you need to do to plan your company's picnic, add one more - keeping the guests occupied. Make sure you have plenty of company picnic games in mind to entertain attendees with. Luckily, it will probably be more fun than the rest of your duties as picnic planner, so get started by choosing the ones that best fit your needs.

There are plenty of popular company picnic games, but the dunk tank is probably one of the best. Especially when you turn it into a "Dunk Your Boss" game. Since the company picnic is one of the few places you get to treat your boss like a regular human being, most employees will jump at the opportunity!

If money is an issue, you may want to consider scrimping on some other areas and rearranging your budget a bit. Because lets face it, everyone wants a chance to soak their boss, so you might as well give the people what they want! It's only one of the most popular company picnic games out there.

Next on the list of important company picnic games is some kind of sport. Anything from a softball game to horseshoes is a great way to get people working together with a bit of a competitive atmosphere. Often the point of a company picnic isn't just to show appreciation, but to also build strong team relationships.

Be sure not to forget about the kiddies! What list of company picnic games could be complete without a few thrown in for children. Besides, keep the kids happy and entertained, and you keep the parents happy! Great kids games include sack races and tug of war with prizes, as well as things like moon bounces or inflatable slides.

If you're unlucky enough to have your picnic right in the middle of a 100 degree heatwave, you may want to add water games to your list of company picnic games. Water gun fights, water balloon tosses and sprinklers are great refreshing activities to provide your guests. Water games in hot weather are a must have for an office picnic - unless you're OKAY with your guests passing out from heat exhaustion!

Of course, if the thought of all this organization tires you out - there's always the easy way out - hold your company picnic at an amusement park! It may seem a bit lazy - but lets face is - amusement parks have something for every age, and often you get huge discounts on group rates. It might take the fun out of planning your company picnic games but hey - you have enough to worry about, right? This just takes one thing off your plate. Happy planning!
