Getting messy

By 5 years ago
Categories Pokhara
During a holiday , we decided to pay a visit to the children at Everest Children’s Home. Usually we help them with homework, but because it was a national holiday we jumped at the opportunity to get a bit more messy. Newspaper, balloons and paper mache proved a success with the 5 – 12 year olds and no one emerged with a clean set of hands (or feet or face for that matter). Hopefully, when the glue has dried, there will be an abundance of circular shapes, for the children to turn into animal faces, bowls or decorative objects. Overall, the day was exhausting, but one of the best experienced by both volunteers and children throughout our time in Nepal.
