This Thursday they started the summer activities at the Jardim de Ilheu with children, collaborating with a project of Câmara de Lobos city hall so that the children have playful activities in summer.
The European volunteers of the Metaphora theater, we will participate once a week doing play activities for them.
This Thursday I started but also the other volunteers helped me, since there were 25 children.
The activity I did was a bookmark made with bags of chips hooked small pieces of the bag.
The part in which they had to cheat was especially difficult for the little ones.
We had to help them a lot since some of them were quite small and the activity was not easy to do, I take the opportunity to thank the volunteers that were there.
The good thing about this is that those who already knew how to do it, taught those who had more difficulties producing a collaborative learning.
As the summer progresses, we will continue with the activities and try to make the children have a summer with enriching play activities.
