In Romania, June 1st is Children’s Day! Celebrations take place all over the country to make the day special for the children. The play therapists in the hospital organize games and events, such as face painting, magic shows, and balloons. This year we helped by providing 200 bananas for the kids to have a healthy snack for the day. In the After School Program, we let the kids have some extra play time, including using the parachute and playing kickball. But the best part of the day was the surprise ice cream that each class was able to enjoy! The Kid’s Club kids each received some special gifts for the day, like stuffed animals and umbrellas.
Our teachers and volunteers know how special the children are that we have the privilege to work with daily, but it’s still fun for everyone to have a special celebration and for the kids to be reminded just how loved they are!
