Adults used to be children

March 30th, 2012

Today, we held our activity at the provisional housing No.4 in Minami zakai district.

– Bu-chan’s report –

A lot of people came to the assembly room in the provisional housing again today.

The participants were Inapuh, Okapi, Sagah, and Chinrin who came from a company in Tokyo for a training, and Harry who has been participating in our activities for three days.

The children and some members from Peace Boat were playing tag energetically when we arrived there. Harry and Inapuh took a turn to take care of the children, and they all started playing outside.

Other children were enthusiastic about doing art work which used both papier-mache and beads. Shigeki was surprised that he saw that the energetic Kaito, who is always running, was actually sitting and creating art work.

The children, tired of playing outside, came inside and played card games or enjoyed beads art work.

Yuna created wonderful work like this.

Today, I noticed through the activity that adults also have childlike facial expressions when they play. It was a fun day.

Today’s volunteers were Ri, Okapi, Chinrin, Sagah, Inapuh, Shigeki, and Bu-chan.
