The clients and team members of Arcare North Shore did not let the wet, rainy weather outside dampen their spirits or stop anyone from having a good time.
As the rain pelted down outside, we were inside high and dry having a blast playing Balloon Volleyball.
The team members prepared some big, green balloons beforehand that were perfect for this game!
We had so many laughs as each balloon took turns in getting stuck on the air vents of the air-conditioning.
Because of that, we tried to hit other balloons to try to knock them down and at one point, we nearly lost them all!
It was really fun but also very tiring for everyone. But it was hard to get everyone to stop as they were having a ball!
So after our eventful activity, we enjoyed a well-deserved coffee and cake delivered to us by the lovely team who saw that we were working up a sweat.
Everyone looks forward to the rainy days now because of the fun activities that the Lifestyle team has in store for them.
This helps the clients stay active and keeps them fit too. It is important to remember that you can still have fun while you are working out.
Even Diann thinks that Arcare North Shore should use this as a form of exercise, so we have added it into our monthly workout routine as a group.
Being competitive is a lot of fun as well, and this game of Balloon Volleyball brings the best out of all of us.
