6. Give back with a virtual Charity Drive

One of the best virtual team building activities for groups looking to make a difference. 

7. Get Creative With A Costume Contest 

Put on the most green for a leprechaun look, deck yourself out in gold jewelry, or even dress like a rainbow. See who has the most St. Paddy’s spirit this year. Another great virtual team building activity to pair with a food, beverage, or trivia event for a fun, totally themed celebration.

10. Stream St. Patrick’s Day celebrations together 

If you want to keep it mellow, stream some St. Patrick’s Day celebrations for an easy way to participate in the festivities with minimal effort.

11. Bake Some Sweet Shamrock Cookies

Or any baked good, really! This list is a good starting place for yummy Irish baking inspiration. Bake along with your team or send everyone the same recipe and team members can bake on their own and everyone can come together at the end to celebrate. A classic, cozy, kid-friendly virtual team building activity. 

12. Sample fine whiskies from a master distiller 

It wouldn’t be St. Paddy’s Day without a little whiskey. The folks at Ranger Creek Distilling are offering two virtual whisky tasting packages, including whiskies shipped to your door. Learn the nuances of fine whiskey from a master distiller to really celebrate in style.
