The Christmas Party Every Company Should Host: An Ice Skating Rink Holiday Party.

Holiday season has arrived which means the office Christmas party is at hand. Coworkers will be coming in their ugly Christmas sweaters, bringing their secret Santa gifts, and bringing holiday cheer. A Christmas party is a great way to show your employees and coworkers how much you appreciate their hard work throughout the year. Decorations, food and drink, and venue round the top tips for what makes a party great but have you thought about the joyous feeling you want your employees to leave with? An ice skating rink gives that and more.

An Ice Skating Rink Makes Any Christmas Party Exciting.

Modern office Christmas parties now include families and kids. Holidays are best spent with family and if you factor in how much time you spend away from your family during work hours, going to a company Christmas party that excludes the people you care about most don’t really make your employees feel that Christmas spirit. This is also a great way to learn more about your employees and see a different side of them. Family friendly company gatherings are a great way to further engage employees and keep company loyalty up.

Hosting a Holiday party at an ice skating rink is also a great way for employees to try something new and get out of their comfort zones. A fun gathering allows your employees to show their silly sides and let loose. Ice skating is instant fun because it’s active. It allows people to enjoy a favorite family-friendly pastime but also have fun with their kids. After a tough but exciting year, this is a great close to all that hard work.

Your Party Shouldn’t Feel Like Another Office Gathering.

A company Christmas Party shouldn’t feel like you are back at the office. In fact, don’t even host it there. Where you host your party can make a huge difference in how your employees feel appreciated. You are throwing a Christmas experience, not just a Christmas Party. It should feel fun, joyous, and exciting. You should absolutely see people laughing and having conversations not about work but about more personal matters. A great Christmas gathering is one where everyone gets to be themselves and the persona of their work versions disappears. Help your employees enjoy themselves by organizing an activity, like ice skating, a true company outing that they will talk about when they come back to work from the Holiday Break.

At any of our ice skating classes for kids feel free to fill up your camera roll with the cutest pictures of your child ever skating on the ice. But also, why are kids and toddlers so instantly good at ice skating? Yes, kids can learn languages overnight and have taught you how to connect all your devices to wifi but how are they also instant ice skating pros?

Ice Skating Lessons for Kids Teaches Them More Than Just Balance.

It probably teaches them to be so stinking cute but we can’t confirm the science of that. We definitely know it teaches them about resilience, confidence, focus, letting go, and most definitely having fun. Emotional residence comes from falling and getting back up again and knowing you’ll get it next time. Literally, this is exactly what happens during our ice skating classes for toddlers. Even during our ice skating lessons for kids, they are learning how to fall and get back up again.

Our lessons teach them that it’s okay to fall because we teach them how to fall, and we teach them how to get back up and we do that over and over as many times until they feel so okay with failing, I mean falling, that they aren’t afraid of it anymore.


Ice Skating Lessons for Kids and Toddlers Turns Them Into Super Heros.

All great superhero have extreme focus; our super slippery synthetic ice rink provides that training. If you aren’t focused on your balance, you’re going down. Superheroes also have a lot of confidence; we see that when a kiddie lets their balance buddy go and takes off to the center of the ice rink on their own. We also know that superhero’s help others and we can definitely say during our ice skating lessons for toddlers that the kids cheer each other on.


Ice Skating Lessons for Kids are a Great Way For a Kid To Be a Kid.

They may show superhero status but the number one thing we see in our ice skating lessons for kids is the fun they are having, is definitely KID fun. Childhood is for making memories and it’s also for building life skills. When you can find an activity that does both, then you are nailing parenthood. How they build their skills is equally as important as where they build them. When a kid feels comfortable to fall and fail they learn that growing is fun. For us, watching them grow is incredibly fun, it’s magical. We know, it’s important we make their experience of growth just as fun for them as it is for us.

And you better believe we are taking all the cutest pictures we can!
