This week proved to be busy for the children of the Guardería. On the 21st of November, the children made invitations for their families for the Christmas party held at Pop Wuj. While making Christmas cards is not an educational tool, it gives the children an opportunity to invite the rest of their family to spend time together in a relaxing environment, hopefully strengthening family ties.
On the 24th of November, we had our final birthday party of the year! To help with the celebration, several volunteers made decorations and baked cakes.
Although, the decorations would not have been complete without the help of the children pasting balloons to the ceilings and walls.
Two of our student volunteers donated two piñatas and small gifts for the birthday children! Although it took a great amount of effort of all the children, the two piñatas were finally broken and the children were able to stuff their bags full of candy and peanuts.
After everyone was worn out of the excitement of the piñatas, the children retired into the Guardería for cake and gift opening. The birthday party was a success!
