I work in an office with three other people. I am the only female and the youngest. Today I was put in charge of our office “fun committee”….the boss wants to have one Friday a month where we close the office during lunch time and have “fun” he suggested themes. For example we all recently went on vacations so he wants the theme for next Friday to be tropical because of our vacations. But I’m coming up pretty empty on ideas for themes, food, everything! I might think up something but then I don’t think the three guys will find it “fun” like I do. So I’m asking ya’ll to put on your creative thinking caps and help a bee out! 🙂 Any suggestions or ideas?

Not for the tropical themed one but in the future, you could do some sort of card game competition and have a few tables of different skill levels of players. Or outside some sort of game like kickball or softball.

Thanks for the ideas! I forgot to mention we only have 1 hour lunch for this Fun Friday. I don’t know how well the different tables would work for skill level as there are only 4 of us in the whole office. And kickball or softball might not work either as the guys wear suits to work everyday.

For tropical theme you could play some hawaian music (and if your office is really fun) blend up some pina colada or virgin ones. Get some lays and hawaian BBQ =)
At my FI’s work every Wednesday at lunch they all play VolleyBall at an indoor court nearby. You could always look for sports clubs in the area and do an activity like that one day?
I got these ones from The Office but you could do an office olympics or a murder myster lunch.

Hm… so we’ve had some controversy in our dept in terms of “corporate fun” basically anything potluck-y or anything where the coworkers had to contribute something or money has not been looked upon as “fun.”
Is your company footing the bill? I can suggest go-karting/mini golfing for a diff event. In terms of tropical… what about getting L & L to cater in and enforcing a luau theme dress…. everyone can wear flip flops (but hide formal work shoes under the desk if it is a “super dressed up” environment.
