Colorir as ferias July 2013

Are we continuing with story about summer activities??? As a matter of fact is, yes we are doing that.

Now i am remembering ,how the July was great.

Visiting ``Fonto do Idolo" and "Museum D. DIogo" where we had played games like Romans were played, we have learnt about Roman past of Braga. We saw were was Forum and Thermas and how they social life looked like.

With JCV´s volunteers from " Project Verao" , which are promoting danger risk of the Sun , we had spent all day in games designed like that to everyone learnt every fact about sun´s risk factor

In Quinta pedagógica we have learned to make recycled paper, visited animals, ate fruits and saw how to plant and grow fruits and vegetables.

Mono showed to the kids how to make very tasty ice cream and cake very fast, with a lot of fruits and without sugar.

July - summer in full aspect !!! We had degrees of Celsius for exporting. And that wheather is great for what? For a beach, ofc. But when beach is not near swimming pool is great solution.

July is marked like month of swimming pool because we had twelve days for splattering. It was awesome . Kids were taking care about youngest and helping to us to be everything in order and we didn´t have any problem. Everyone knew to take measures for being outside on hot Sun , kids were acting very responsible and there was just place for fun.

Colorir as ferias June 2013

During month of june we had just two weeks of activities with kids. And they were very important for success of summer activities. Kids had met volunteers, we worked on dynamics of group and introduce them with everything planned.First activity was “Jogo Alimentacao Saudável”. Facilitators were JCV volunteers from health promotion project “Alimentacao Saudável” which is promoting healthy nutrition and healthy habits of living. Kids were involved in the game , through wich they learn a lot about nutrition, welfare of proper diet and food pyramid.

On dynamics of group we worked on workshops of balloon modeling, merengue dancing ,football tournament and during day of traditional games. Dynamics of group wasn't our only task. It was a little break after school for kids,a way to met each others for us to met them and to put very strict rules of respecting each other.

Kids, in visit of “ Museu dos Biscanhos” (and especially EVS volunteers ) , had opportunity to learn about history of Minho region , see how people in Braga lived in past and be delighted with beauty which walls of “museum of biscanhos” are hiding.

Seems like the kids had the most fun in visit of bombeiros de Braga. Firefighters was very hospitable. After introducing their call and converstion about tasks on their job, kids were sitting in firefighters truck,starting on sirene, took a lot of pictures and made even more questions. Braga should be calm,after seeing all of those smiles we had concluded that bomberios have worthy replacement.
