The importance of fun

Humour and play are vibrant, powerful tools to support participant learning. Laughter, like physical movement and breathing exercises, is a great physical action to release pent up tension, emotion and stress.

Create energisers that are fun and uplifting. Use colour, fabric and toys (such as play dough) to inspire the imagination of participants and their sense of fun. We have employed multicoloured Guatemalan ‘stress’ balls, coloured balloons and animal figurines – each facilitator will have her/his own ideas.
