The older learners at Wake up! (5-6 year olds) recently had a first hands-on craft experience, known as protoyping, initiated by the Design School for Children from Italy. The idea was for the children to make an everyday object from a range of materials they were provided with. As an object ‘a box’ was chosen.
Lately we have had some senior volunteers. It was a pleasure to have these ladies around, willing to take on any challenge, very practical and hands-on.
The roof of the play hut and the kitchen on the playground got a shade, various items were repaired, books were covered. They made the children smile. If there are more grannies out there considering a time-out from the ordinary: you are welcome!
