The Squid game is a literal translation of a popular schoolyard game played by Korean children during the 1970s and 1980s. It’s described as a “type of tag where offense and defense use a squid-shaped board drawn in the dirt. In the show, a crew of very ‘desperate’ South Koreans—all mired in debt—are lured to a remote island where they’re to play a series of games from which the winner will emerge a multimillionaire. Soon things take a turn for the darker, beginning with the most gruesome game of Red Light, Green Light you’ve ever seen.
Of course, Happy Sparrow will not want to bring his participants to the ‘dark side’. In Sparrow’s Edition of the Squid Games, he will ‘mirror’ a few of the games and let the participants understand the ‘alternative ways’ to play them virtually.

What if we can relive the action and fun team building of Counter-Strike again? The best part is that you are able to play the game physically in the real world instead of sitting in front of a PC, and play as “Terrorists” who will plant the bomb or play as “Counter-Terrorists” with the aim of eliminating the “Terrorists” and defusing the bomb. You get to plan, seek, disrupt and destroy in a real life but safe environment.
Leveraging on paintball as the means, participants will be able to defend and attack in a customised “war-zone͛” where the Counter-Terrorists will pit their strengths against the Terrorists just like in the Counter-Strike game which we loved to play in the past.

In this scavenger hunt programme, participants are given a drawn-to-scale map of the location in play. On the map, there will be many missions and challenges indicated.
Participants are also given visual clues. What they have to do is to use their creativity to match the visual clues to the marked location in the treasure map together with specific instructions and missions that they have to fulfil. By the end of the day, they would acquire animal knowledge which they never learnt before!
As everyone is important for the success of this mission, they will need to collaborate (collaboration and seeing the big picture) amongst each other to help find the treasures. Since this is not a very physical programme, it is definitely safe for the slightly older participants. Communication and being open (building the foundation of right communication and being open to changes) is the key to success for this Treasure Hunt Teambuilding Programme.
As participants only have a certain time to complete the mission, they will have to stay positive (positive mindset when facing challenges) in midst of all the challenging clues. Through this customised treasure hunt, it’s also a perfect time for managers to earmark potential leaders or supervisors which they may not see in the workplace.
In an environmentally conscious world, reducing your waste, reusing your materials and recycling can make a big difference. The main aim of Sparrow’s Environmental Awareness Adventures is to spread the awareness of recycling to the participants through a series of fun team building game that require the usage of recycled materials.
Environmental awareness means being aware of the natural environment and making choices that benefit the earth, rather than hurt it. Some of the ways to practice environmental awareness include: using safe and non-toxic building supplies, conserving energy and water, recycling, activism, and others.
Participants’ creativity and innovative brain juices are constantly put to the test as they are put through fun and exciting challenges specially designed by Happy Sparrow!
The Amazing Sparrow’s “Cliff Hanger” programme is designed for corporate clients to challenge them in the arena of rock climbing. He had redesigned rock climbing programmes to showcase to his clients that climbing can be safe, addictive, and fun at the same time. Working only with the best climbing professionals, Happy Sparrow is able to bring the best climbing teambuilding programmes to his clients too.
Sparrow’s Speed Climbing challenge – Participants will be required to scale the rock wall and retrieve the points sheet specially planted by the climbing instructors. The more they collect, the more points they will be given. As the Speed Climbing Challenge is a time-based challenge, participants have to scale the wall in the most efficient and derive the most effective method to retrieve those ‘Points Sheets’. The others who are not climbing will have the chance to guide the ‘climber’. Once a climber has retrieved the ‘Points Sheets’, they will come down and let the other participant continue with the retrieval, the time will stop when all participants have successfully scaled the wall and retrieved 6 points sheets.
Sparrow’s Blind-Climb – In this special challenge, the participants will be grouped in pairs, and one of the climbers in the pair will be blindfolded. He/she will have to listen closely to his partner on where to hold and where to grab before they can reach the desired point. Once they have successfully reached the point, they will swap roles. The team building game will stop when all 6 participants have successfully done a ‘Blind-Climb’!! Effective communication, Focus and Trust is the key to completing this seemingly impossible task. Trust Happy Sparrow, it is possible! Even kids can do it!!!
Kites have a long and varied history and many different types are flown individually and at festivals worldwide. Kites may be flown for recreation, art, or other practical uses.
When was the last time you fly a kite? Do you still remember the good old days where we have to make our own kites and trying to ‘fly’ them up in the air by running around? Kite making is a creative team building programme that allows the company and their employees to do something out of their office environment and seeing their creative thinking and works soar in the air.
The Sparrow’s Kite Challenge gives participants the chance to reminisce the good old days of making and flying those kites. From the corporate teambuilding angle, participants are supposed to work together to create a company kite, where they have to write down their visions and missions onto the kites. Flying those kites in the air is actually a metaphor to show that whatever goals they have written onto the kites has actually turned into reality. This is also a fun family team bonding Singapore programme where the adults and kids can let their creative thinking juices flow by creating that special Family Kite together as a family. Kids will love them!

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aims to ensure that companies conduct their business in a way that is ethical. This means taking account of their social, economic and environmental impact and consideration of human rights.
It can involve a range of activities such as:
• Working in partnership with local communities
• Socially responsible investment (SRI)
• Developing relationships with employees and customers
• Environmental protection and sustainability
There have been increased demands from employees, customers and government bodies for businesses to be more open about their activities and to reach, and maintain, acceptable standards in their business practice. For employers, CSR is now seen as an important way to increase competitive advantage, protect and raise brand awareness and build trust with customers and employees.
Happy Sparrow helps companies to design and build meaningful CSR Programmes so as to positively impact the organisations of choice by Happy Sparrow’s Clients.
Many clients of Happy Sparrow told him that they would like to experience “military training” in a more relaxed yet realistic way. They want to have scenarios where they can appear as heroes to save hostages or even POWs.
Knowing that the normal Paintball programme can be too boring, Happy Sparrow worked with his overseas partners to create a Specialized Military Teambuilding Programme. Cladded in uniforms donning masks and goggles, they will be equipped with “realistic airsoft guns” (e.g. M16, M4s, AK47s, etc.) to solve certain customized missions.
Happy Sparrow can also incorporate a few jungle survival programmes just for his corporate clients to have a taste of what is it like to be a soldier. They will learn survival skills like how to make an emergency compass, or how to set fire with a bag of water too!
Happy Sparrow is constantly looking for ways to make Teambuilding adventures more fun and more exciting for his repeat clients to be engaged in a more physical way.

Today, we are living in a world of uncertainties. How many times have we read about innocent people getting stabbed or being punched on the street? And these victims do not have any enmity with the aggressors. They are just at the wrong place at the wrong time. What if we can change all these? What if, through a session of self-defence teambuilding, the participants can be more aware of how to use their hands and body movements to deflect potential threats or risks of being punched on the streets.
In this fast paced society, employees often find themselves stuck at their office chairs and tables, answering and following up with mountains of emails. At the end of the day, they are often tired and not having the energy to do anything else.
Leveraging on the Sparrow’s Self Defence Teambuilding Programme, not only the participants are able to have a day of fun-filled with interesting self-defence related teambuilding activities to complete and get to know more about their teammates, but they will also be equipped with some basic skills of Self Defence where they will be able to have that option of fending for themselves in the face of danger.
Participants will be equipped with the knowledge of constantly being on their toes by being more situationally aware of their surroundings. They will walk away from this self-defence teambuilding with more confidence that they will always have their backs covered by their fellow colleagues too!
