Sharing art with kids
Two more tables were set up in another part of the room where kids made something else artsy. I was too busy to go see what they did there. At another work station, the kids each had a pumpkin to decorate with veggie trims. Green pepper slices, olives, lettuce leaves, and grapes. Seniors assisted them with the hammer and tooth picks which were used to anchor the veggies. Some of them added marshmallows.
Another work station let the children build little apple tarts, which were then baked, so they could eat them later. In one corner there was a senior lady reading story books to her 10 kids. In another room kids learned a little Tai Chi and some Salsa dancing.
We were tired out by the end of their time with us, and so were they. They still had the walk back to school. It was so much fun to be with them, and just watch and help them. It brought back many good memories and warm fuzzy feelings.
