And that was the end of that. Photographs will come soon, I’m sure. But right now, my head is filled with all kinds of thoughts.
Children are like magpies. They love shiny things. All of them loved the golden tape I took with me to bind their work together. I thought they’d like to use ribbons, but golden tape won hands down.
Children are affectionate in ways that adults can never be. One of the children stood at my elbow, rubbing his stomach on my arm. I cannot even begin to imagine an older child doing that.
Children are unbelievably creative. Drawing, colouring, writing and sharing – team work seems to come naturally to most of them. Only one group yesterday found it difficult to work in a team.
The best part, I think, was the fact that everyone was too excited with the workshop to be sad that it was over. One child wrote in her feedback form, “I don’t think that the workshop was good. It was awesome and amazing.”
