    Hi Anna!
    Thank you for reading and commenting. There is also possible to use a banana, and old wooden board, or anything else out of the ordinary. 🙂
    The effects of a good applause is underestimated. A good applause will raise morale in a swif. 🙂 And it is always fun.

    Have a superb day!

  2. Hahaha – I really laughed when I read #13: # Use a cucumber as a pointing device during meetings. (I can totally visualize that)
    Be an early bird and make an applaud zone – I enjoyed those. All great ideas 🙂
