Maggie Moo Music dropped by the Arcare Eight Mile Plains residence for another round of singing, dancing and laughter.
The clients loved watching the little children bop along to the bubbly music and their youthful energy was very infectious.
During their previous visit, the children had balloons to play with.
But this time, the children focused on singing and dancing to some catchy tunes and popular nursery songs.
There were even actions for the lyrics and the children knew them all off by heart.
The clients picked up the new moves and soon enough, they were waving their hands and moving along to the music.
The children’s laughter brought big smiles to the clients’ faces.
Laughter is wonderful way to reduce stress, have fun and feel relaxed.
After the children had left, the clients were still smiling from ear to ear as they chatted about the endearing children.
“These children are so lively, it makes me want to get up and dance,” a client said.
Laughter really is the best medicine at Arcare Eight Mile Plains!
