#1. Food Festival

When it comes to putting together the perfect family company event, nothing is more enticing than food. From your employees to their kids, everyone is sure to get on board with some delicious grub!

One of the best ways to treat your team right is by ensuring they can indulge in some great eats. Especially after a long, hard week, there’s nothing quite as enjoyable as sitting down with your family for a meal that hits the spot!

A Mouth-Watering Family Fun Day

Even if their children are apprehensive about going, it’ll be easy to sell them on the idea of food being there. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Depending on the event style you’re going for, you can either offer a buffet, BBQ, or summer food stands with a cotton candy or s’mores bar.

If you want to appeal to your employees’ nostalgic side, host an adventure day company event! Now that it’s summer, it’ll be easy to use the great outdoors as a suitable venue.

Plan an adventure day for the whole family, complete with games and activities like hiking, scavenger hunts, nature walks, or team-building challenges.

The Key To A Successful Event

Regardless of what type of event you’re throwing, you need to book a corporate emcee. That way, your event can stay on track, and everyone in attendance will be sure to have a great time!

As a corporate emcee, I’ve learned that there’s nothing more critical for events than having someone experienced to run the show and guide the festivities. Don’t overlook this fact!

#3. Movie Night

Nothing says “family-friendly event” like a movie night under the stars.

You can set up a large outdoor screen or even rent a movie theater to play some kid-friendly movies for your employees and their loved ones to enjoy. Don’t forget to bring in some popcorn, snacks, and beverages!

Especially in today’s modern age, there’s perhaps nothing as important as a healthy work-life balance. And by encouraging your team to spend time with their family, you’re a part of that positive change!

By putting together an innovation fair, you can promote both healthy learning and quality time.

The Power Of Collaborative Innovation

At an innovation fair, employees and their families can display innovative projects or ideas. It can be anything from exciting science experiments to technological inventions.

Interactive demonstrations hosted by a master of ceremonies also allow more opportunities for networking and collaboration between all the attendees.

#5. Learning Workshops

Kids are always hungry to learn. And with learning workshops, you can encourage that healthy drive for both your employees and their families!

Organize a series of learning workshops covering anything like financial planning, parenting tips, health, and wellness, or personal development. But you can take any route you want to.

If you’re looking for something geared more toward the kids of your employees, you can host gardening, DIY, or origami workshops.

Yoga Retreat

Your employees are likely looking for a chance to unwind and relax with their families. And with a family-friendly yoga retreat planned, that’ll be easy!

By giving your team a chance to indulge in some yoga, you’re giving them a chance to release stress and tension that otherwise might continue to build up. 

Don’t forget to hire professional instructors to lead yoga classes suitable for all ages and skill levels. Plus, you should ensure your yoga retreat is in a serene and peaceful environment where guests can relax, rejuvenate, and connect with each other.

Wrapping Up

Putting together the perfect family-friendly fun day isn’t the challenge that you might think it is. With these great ideas up your sleeve, you can treat your team and their loved ones to the comforting get-together they deserve!
