International children’s week

This week we celebrated international childrens week. Actually there is only one international childrens day on June 1st, but because our volunteers go out into four schools, we made it a week.  
We started the activities on Tuesday in José de la cruz Mena. Wednesday we celebrated in Nueva Esperanza, on Thursday in Escudo and today we are finishing the week with activities in Pablo Antonio Cuadra. 

The activities were different kind of games. The children could get a face paint, like a tiger or a butterfly and had lots of fun. After the games, we had a real dance contest in which children showed their moves. As well our Ayudantes showed us their skills. They danced, played in a real theater together with some volunteers and sang a song for the children. A group of volunteers showed us their dance skills as well. At the end of the day there were some delicious cookies and a refreshing juice for every child.  
 It was a good week and all the happy faces of the children made us really grateful.
