Staff Activities

Selfie Scavenger Hunt

A lot of classrooms will be decorated for the holidays! Take some time to find the most fun or unusual things around your school! Next, create clues, divide your staff up into random teams (mix them up), and have them race to solve the clues, find the objects, take a group selfie with them, and be the first team to complete the hunt! This one is great for community building, stress relief (through running and laughing), and can be done in a relatively short period of time. Maybe gather together for cookies and hot chocolate afterwards!

 

Be Well Bingo

Challenge staff to complete a BINGO! Offer small prizes or shout outs to the first across, first diagonal, first to fill the board! Have them submit pictures of them doing one for a fun twist!
