September 2024 Team Building Activities & Ideas
September is here, and the weather is starting to get cooler. September is when people are coming back from vacation and kids are back to school. Here are Teamland’s ideas on how to incorporate team-building activities into your September calendar.

September 2 – World Coconut Day

Coconuts are a versatile ingredient used in many recipes and drinks. On this day, why not take our Around the World Cooking Class and request dishes that revolve around coconut? 

Step into our virtual kitchen, and let our expert chef help you learn any cooking style from around the globe – all using fresh and local ingredients. The class is a unique culinary adventure delivered over video by our expert chef. You will cook and eat meals designed to introduce you to cooking styles from around the world. Your experience consists of an expert-led lesson, a video demonstration, and step-by-step recipes. And of course, a delicious meal to enjoy at the end of the experience. Learn the skills to impress at your next dinner party, or expand your regular meal repertoire. 

September 4 – History of Wildlife Day

Every year we lose numerous species to the growth and expansion of human holdings, but through the effort of zoos, sanctuaries, and preservation organizations that rate is being slowed. These groups do amazing work, educating and bringing awareness to people everywhere. There are plenty of options to help support endangered animals, and Wildlife Day is a great opportunity to do it! All communities have animal sanctuaries and zoos nearby, so take a trip with your family or friends to the nearest exhibit (or even a virtual one) and ask how you can help.

September 5 – International Charity Day

Every year, charities all over the world help to save and improve people’s lives, fight disease, protect children, and give hope to many thousands of people. There are various ways that you can get involved with the International Day of Charity. It does not matter how much money you have to spare or how much time you are available; charitable donations are welcomed in any form, big or small.

September 7 - Salami Day

Salami Day encourages people all over the globe to explore the world of salami by trying new and adventurous types of salami and creating a lovely charcuterie board. Choose Teamland’s Build your own cheese board virtual event to learn about the different kinds of cheese, charcuterie, and salami pairings that make up the perfect combination to bring along to your picnic.

September 8 - International Literacy Day

International Literacy Day will focus on Literacy teaching and learning in the COVID-19 crisis and beyond, with a focus on the role of educators and changing teaching practices.

International Literacy day activities:

  • Donate books to local classrooms
  • School classroom libraries always need fresh reading materials for their young students. Ask your child’s teachers for a wish list of books they know students will enjoy and donate them to class!
  • If you don’t have a child in school, ask coworkers, relatives, or neighbors about donating to their children’s classroom.
  • Gift a book to someone
  • Children are naturally curious about the world. Reading satisfies their desire to learn and feeds their imagination. Books are a great gift, especially on International Literacy Day to give a book to your own children or someone else’s child that is close to you. Don’t forget… adults appreciate receiving books as gifts too!

September 13 - Positive Thinking Day

September 13 marks Positive Thinking Day. A day where you concentrate on all the positive things in your life. It’s a time of reflection and appreciation and Teamland offers several health and wellness experiences to help you have positive thinking for not just one day of the year.

September 16 - Guacamole Day

Here at Teamland, we want to honor guacamole. And what better way to do that than to make tacos, and lots and lots of guacamole? And a margarita couldn’t hurt! Gather your team and celebrate with a taco-making party. Teamland offers a virtual cooking class that will guide you through the tips and tricks on making the most mouth-watering treats.

September 21 - World Gratitude Day

World Gratitude Day has been designed to bring the whole world together in a day that is all about being thankful. It’s the perfect day to show appreciation for the things and people you value in your life. Take Teamland’s virtual event on mindfulness to create a habit of fostering gratitude.

September 22 - White Chocolate Day

Now, who doesn’t like chocolate? We certainly love it! Enough to offer classes teaching you all about it with our Chocolate 101 class or Chocolate around the world! Or if you are super adventurous and want to get creative, we offer an Edible Paint Night! Guess what you will be painting with? Chocolate!! Celebrate this sweet day with your team by participating in one of these unique experiences. 

September 30 - International Podcast Day

Podcasts have become a convenient medium for us to acquire information. Out of this shifting of paradigms has come a new imagining of an old idea - radio broadcasts and most specifically radio talk shows/dramas. On this day share with your coworkers a podcast you recently listened to that you loved.

These are several different ways to explore September Team Building Activities & Ideas with your group.
