Therapy made FUN!!

We had a "Therapy Day" where all the inside students participated in different group therapy activities. The boys really loved this one!! There are about 4 different stations and this is the one I was helping with. the boys were learning team work and how if a positive team is put together they accomplish seemingly impossible tasks. And that it symbolized picking good friends when you go home and making sure they are a "positive team".  The boys really gave it their all at first before recieving any guidance. the boys were simply told to get their group of friends over not under the rope with out touching it! Here are some of the attempts.
 The Fireman!

 The head over heels!
 The Frogger!
 The Cheerleader
 The Please Don't Drop Me!!
 The Piggy Back!
 1.. 2....3...!
 The Torpedo!
 The Tea Kettle!
 Hey I need my arm back!
 Now let's get some help. Kade and Nathan discussed what options were working a little and what ones were not working at all. Then they gave some helpful hints.
 Now the groups really started to make some progress!
 Sometimes the students forgot their role but overall they did well.
 One of the hints they were given was to stay stiff as a board.
 Getting close to the rope!!
 Sit back and enjoy the ride!!
It was really cool to see the boys get everybody over the rope!
Then Kade processed the whole thing with the guys. They had a blast!!  The guys are really excited for the next Therapy Day!!
