why pick yaymaker for your smaller groups?


Our packages make planning an event easier than ever!


Feel confident knowing you always have an expert you can turn to.


With so many options, small groups can return time and time again.


Yaymaker’s events for small groups are curated for 10 people and under, but you can talk to your event planner if you are considering more.

Small staff bonding activities are for your immediate team (not the whole department or company). They help coworkers get to know each other more, so they can communicate and work more effectively.

Planning a team-building exercise for a small group is a great way to include each team member and form tighter bonds. Employees often feel more comfortable taking part, especially those new or introverted.

Regular team bonding activities create a happier environment, with greater employee engagement. Not to mention a more well-oiled machine.

Depending on the event, we're more than happy to tailor the length of our team bonding exercises. For example, we can shorten trivia, but experiences like Paint Nite depend on the design. Speak to your event coordinator for more.

We don’t typically decorate for team bonding games or parties. But, if décor is something you would like to include, you can speak with your event coordinator about it as an add-on.

Some packages include a food or drink option, such as our Virtual Murder Mystery package. But you can speak to your event planner about adding our enhancements to any experience.

We need around three weeks to plan a team-building activity or private party. This is so we can collect all the necessary details and handle logistics.

Got a shorter timeframe? Our event planning team will see what they can do to meet your needs. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

The best activities for team bonding in small groups get all team members stuck in. Keep in mind your group’s demographic and interests—otherwise, they’re less likely to attend.

Start by asking your coworkers what activities they enjoy and what interests them. Then, you can view our offerings designed for intimate groups and go from there.

There is some wiggle room with group budgets, event vision and needs. Just ask your event planner.

With Yaymaker, ensuring your group has fun is easy! Just choose an experience that piques your group's interest, then our event planners and hosts will handle the rest.

The key thing is to ensure the activity is engaging and inclusive. Luckily, our hosts are the best in business on this front!

Our hosts are great at easing you in and making you feel comfortable, but an icebreaker is always fun! Our favorites are two classics:
● Two truths and a lie (obviously!)
● Would you rather

There are definite pros and cons to large and small group team-building activities. Large-scale events help you to build widespread connections across the company. Whereas with smaller groups, you can form more tight-knit bonds with individuals.

Absolutely! We will ship supplies and any chosen add-ons to each address if your participants are spread out. One less thing for you to worry about.

To deliver everything in time, we need all mailing addresses 14 days ahead of your event. During peak times, such as the holidays, we extend our deadline to 21 days ahead of your event date

Payments are due 14 days before your event.

We’ll share a Zoom link with the organizer in advance so they can share it with all attendees ahead of time.

Check your supplies beforehand to ensure everything is there. No other preparation is needed!

All kits, except the plant kit and cooking class kit, can stay in the box until the day of the event. If you’re doing a plant or cooking event, please remove your supplies ahead of time so that everything lasts.
