One Thursday morning, at my work place, we were having clinic day for teenagers. When they started coming they all looked sad and didn't want to participate in any activity. They were even dozing off when a speaker would talk to them. I decided to come up with a fun game called Music dance chair game. It is where one has six participants with five chairs then one plays fun music. To make the game more interesting, one suddenly stops playing the music while the participants compete to sit down in a chair. The one who doesn't sit gets dismissed.

The teenagers really laughed and got to interact with each other. Even other colleagues came to join the game. I was really happy I was able to bring such joy.

Every person left happy and with a new friend... #goodtimes... #newfriends.
