Editor's Note


The summer picnic season is upon us and we are soooo excited to be gearing up in anticipation! we have just hired some fantastic new operations staff members who are going through the training process so that they will be "event ready" soon. We have also just done a full inspection of all the summer equipment and it is ready to go.
The above classic summer picnic themes are great, however we are loving some new twists; Circus/Circus, Summer Safari, Country Fair, Field Day or Recess, or how about a Rio Carnivale'?

Find the Fun
We have been contacted by numerous television programs looking for potential party planning cadidates for their upcoming episodes. If the limelight is calling you or someone you know, please submit details to info@funproductions.com. Maybe you will be the next Party Mama or Super Sweet 16!

All Things Theme
Summer Camp
Ensure your guests are Happy Campers with this party plan!
*Invite friends in the form of letters home.
*Decorate with tiki torches, wild flowers and/or camoflauge. A fire pit section would really set the scene. Plastic bugs dangling from trees, or edible animals tucked away for smaller children to find could be a fun twist. If indoors, add some twinkly lights above as stars. Be sure to include wooden signage pointing out important spots (fictional or real) like infirmary, lake, showers, toilets, etc....
* Larger events could have a Camp Registration Table, where campers are assigned a cabin and given a name tag. Regardless of guest count, tshirts could be created for each cabin or have guests create their own as an activity in the Craft Shack! Include other crafty camp favorites such as painting pet rocks, making friendship bracelets ~ or ask Fun Productions to bring the Sandy Candy , Spin Art, or Face Painting Talent!
*Fun Productions could also be key in arranging Field Day games sure to spur competition between cabins, or other childhood favorites like Giant Twister!
*Each table centerpeice could be a cabin name, where diners construct their own chant. Foods like bug juice, trail mix hour'dourves or smores dessert could be served on divider trays and/or in tin dishware.
*Above all, don't forget to invite the camp from across the lake for the big dance!


Featured Fun

Can you teach an old dog new tricks? Try a few of the following twists on some old standards:
At Play
1. 3-Legged Soccer ~ Secure bandanas above the knee and again at the ankle of the outside leg between every two players. Let the soccer game begin!
2. Blind Volleyball ~ Use a beach ball instead of a volleyball, and put a tarp over the net. Players will only see the ball once it is already over the net on their side!
3. Opposite Arm Dodgeball ~ all players must only use their opposite arm!

"Thank you so much for the wonderful job Fun Productions did with the games on Friday night at the Colorado Motor Carriers Association (CMCA) convention at the Sheraton Resort in Steamboat Springs.  Our attendees absolutely loved the bull riding, calf roping, high striker and other games.

Tanner did an excellent job getting everything setup on time and the event went very, very smoothly.  Your professionalism is truly an asset to the entertainment industry. I look forward to future opportunities to work together. " - JoLane Hochstetler,  President (Independent Contractor for CMCA)

Have some fun at work!

Monday, April 01, 2019

  1. Treat yo’ self day! Find out what would make your team feel appreciated or what is fun to them and make a day out of it.  
  2. Cereal Bar! Who doesn’t like cereal? Breakfast? Cereal. Lunch? Cereal. Afternoon Snack? Cereal. Dinner? Cereal. It is inexpensive, unexpected, and surprisingly effective. If you have the means build one in, but if you don’t, just bring in a variety of cereals and milks for a day. Bonus, no one will be hangry all day!  
  3. Take some time to laugh and relax! “You can learn more about a person in an hour of laughter than a year of conversation” – Plato. Seems simple enough, it’s just not always easy to find opportunities to bond, right? Around our office this means pajama day! It turns out that our boss wants to wear pajamas to work too. Get the boss on board for some fun and everyone will follow 
  4. “While the cat is away, the mice will play.” This old adage is outdated, and we find bonding over the little things brings our team together. Letting people take a minute to enjoy the sunshine or tell stories and not consistently be focused on the job leads to more productivity! When you need some extra time to connect we have you covered; try www.coloradoteambuildingevents.com for fun bonding experiences from Corporate Recess to in-depth training & facilitation focused on “understanding & synchronizing your team.” 
5. Serious fun! Company picnics have been our specialty for over 25 years, but why have fun just once a year? We have tons of other ways to have fun at work. Some of our favorites are mini golf in the hallway, obstacle courses in the parking lot, field day at the park, arcade games in the board room, and especially a photo booth break! Give us a call and we can come up with some custom fun for your office. 

Fun at work is easy to achieve if you just make the commitment! It doesn’t have to be time consuming as all it takes is one trip to the grocery store, a calendar invite for a theme day, or a phone call/email to the Fun Pros!

(She was actually super productive this day and really excited to be at work!)
