From October 30 to November 3, 2017, children from the Balti Day Center enjoyed a beautiful holiday in an exciting atmosphere.
Teachers at this Children’s Day Center have prepared various thematic activities. For example, on Monday, October 30, a “Master of Improvisation” entertainment program was held, which a group of creative children together with teacher Bernaz Oksana prepared. The children had six tasks in which it was necessary to demonstrate collective intelligence and creativity.
In this competition, children composed songs, presented pantomime, danced in the rhythm of their music interpreted by instruments at hand (pans, spoons, handmade balalaika, bucket, etc.).
“Although during this autumn holiday time was moody, however, it was very cheerful due to the interesting organization of fun programs.”
After the discussions with Father Vasily, the children watched the cartoon movie “The Ten Commandments,” and to the end of this feast, they sang cheerful songs and were served with sweets.
During the winter holidays, some grandmothers with their grandchildren visited the Center, which aims to tell stories while they will bake pies. In addition, other children at the Center were involved with pleasure in composition contest of stories; some were even about the exciting center where they spend time. Finally, came the long-awaited surprise prepared by grandmothers – pies.
During the holiday, the children participated in the decoration workshops for St. Nicholas and Christmas celebrations.
