Our Mid-Autumn Festival party displayed an array of colors as some of the Children came to school wearing beautiful traditional Ao Dai and other colorful costumes. In the morning the Children gathered for an introduction to the Mid-Autumn Festival with a story and a taste of the various Moon cakes. We all joined hands and paraded around the school, singing and cheering for the full moon.
The treat of the party was when our special guests, Janel&Julien, came to form a drum circle with all the Children. With the guests showing us different energetic rhythm patterns and Noah stepping up to show his skills, everyone got involved with tambourines, castanets, bongos and xylophones and soon the room was filled with uplifting rhythm and dancing.
All the activity in the morning made us very hungry indeed and a buffet with an array of foods from various countries was waiting for the Children to dig into. With everything from sushi, crepes, hamburgers and tropical fruit, it went down a treat!
And the last game of the party always is our favorite - Pĩnata.
