Since January, the Toylibrary has been used by the school children guided by their teachers. They are getting great results using this resource to reinforce the topics seen in class.
Through games, arts and crafts these children are showing more interest in learning because they are now able to see that it can also be fun.
Sharing games and time with their classmates has strengthened their friendship. Also, the shyest kids are improving their self-confidence and social skills. These are part of the objectives we were looking forward through the Toylibrary Program.
We, as well as the children, are glad to share with you these satisfactory outcomes. We greatly appreciate all your support!
Dear friends and donors! Hope you’re fine!
We would like you to know the latest activities we have done in the Toy Library. These were related to Mexican traditions, to let the children get involved with their culture.
In México, on November the 2nd we celebrate the ‘Day of the dead’ in which people remember their relatives and friends who have passed away. Following the custum, the Toylibrary organized a contest in which the children had to elaborate an altar decorated with papel picado, candles, flowers, photographs of the departed, candy skulls and some of his or her favorite foods and beverages.
Besides, on December, a Christmas sphere contest took place. The kids had lots of fun making them out with styrofoam balls and spangle.More than 30 kids participated and the winner was Hector Guijosa, who made a Santa Claus. (photo)
