“Using the donation that the children from the England collected, we made a very beautiful and fun party for the children yesterday.
In Brazil, the 12th of October is a holiday, because is the day of Our Lady of Penha, Patron Saint of Brazil, and is also the Children’s Day.
We started the day watching Harry Potter. The culmination of this activity was when, at the end of the film, after the applause, I had with me a packet of “mints of all flavors”, like in the film, that came from Disneyland. Then they could try out the candies and they were incredibly hoping to find those with bad tastes like ear wax, grass, vomiting, and more! It was a great surprise!
Then came the game contest. The game consists in each group roll the dice and move their pieces on a board chalked on the floor. Each number on the board correspond to a task. The tasks were questions, games to find bugs, math, origami, etc.. The dice could only be rolled again when the task was complete. Won the group that reached the end of the board first. The winners won chocolate bars, the favorite reward!
After the fun we have a special snack with cheese bread, pizza, a delicious chocolate cake packed with lots of strawberries! At the end of the day, each child took with him the joy of a relaxing day, fantasy, and a bag of sweets and goodies, of course!
We want to thank the children who have been mobilized to provide this special day!
Lots of love from us all, Elizabeth Sarlo.”
What an inspiring example of children helping other children to have fun.
