It’s time to put a STOP to boring Zoom meetings. So, here are some GREAT ideas to make YOUR next Zoom call FUN!
1. TRIVIA NIGHT
Trivia nights have long been known for their ability to inspire camaraderie, fun, and even a dash of healthy competition. This was certainly one of the first “events” to leverage the boom in teleconferencing. It is a ton of fun and there are some great resources online that can run the event for you or help you host your own. Check out QUIZRUNNERS for their turnkey options!
2. FAMILY TALENT SHOW
The living room becomes your stage. Have each family sign up for their time in the spotlight to show off their unique talents and skills. You could even bring in “celebrity judges” for the event. These could be actual celebrities or, simply popular people in your circles. Check out this blog for some great talent show theme ideas!

4. PAINTING WITH FRIENDS
If you have ever done “Painting with a Twist” or similar outings, you know how much fun it can be with a group of friends. When you gather with others over Zoom to play with the creativity of painting, the possibilities are endless. Just be sure to have plenty of clean up supplies on hand as well! Don’t want to go through the process of hosting your own event? Well, Painting With a Twist can supply everything you need.
5. LEARN A LIFE SKILL
Find people that can teach a skill. You could line up several in a night depending on the age range. Helpful things for teens like how to change a car tire; how to fold a fitted sheet; sew a button; use car jumper cables; plunge a toilet, or reading nutrition labels. There are several courses available online or, for added benefit, look to your own people to help teach those skills!
6. COOKING CLASS / PARALLEL COOK
With everyone home, learning to cook a new meal is a fun hands-on activity for all. Not only is it educational, but it can also help to expand horizons and palates! You could certainly have people alternate teaching how to cook their favorite/signature meal letting people get their own supplies. Or you can check with Cuiline for various class options with everything included!
7. VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB
Reading is a hobby that’s great for both professional and daily life! To encourage your remote workers to read, you can start a virtual book club. Not only does a book club help remote teams mingle and socialize, but it also encourages them to engage in critical thinking and be open to differing opinions. These are all great qualities to develop effective communication skills and listening skills among remote employees!
