This week I was joined by Irfadha and Minky, and we continued to work on putting both plays on their feet – while also giving the kids some time to play both inside and out, despite the rain!
Despite more communication break-downs, I thought this workshop was incredibly fun. I’m particularly proud of quiet little Loheswari, who channelled her inner stern-maths-teacher, and all my naughty Kakkaiyankulam boys (Fausan, Akkar, Hafrath, Ijas) who were all committed to bringing thoughtful characterisations to the “stage”.
The first real Building Bridges workshop! Chaotic, tiring, but incredibly delightful – it consisted mostly of games (Fruit Bowl, Dog and the Bone, etc) but the children also worked together to make shapes like bicycles, aeroplanes, peacocks and elephants.
Transportation was jinxed this week, but everything sorted itself out in the nick of time in every case. This week, the kids decorated their personal files, played more Fruit Bowl and Dog and the Bone, and were introduced to the Mirror Game.
This week saw the children of Chiraddikulam wielding scissors, pasting paper, and using binder gum to stick wool on their finished products. They got quite creative with how they placed their cut-outs…I was very proud!
