Crafts and Games!
Chicktime San Antonio took a trip around the world today with an International Passport event at Boysville Children’s Home. While we normally only work with the teen girls, we opened up this special event to the entire campus. Our wonderful volunteers from Campanas neighborhood, led by Bindu Nagaranthal, introduced the kids to cultures and foods from 5 different countries. Participants received a passport book and traveled to stations featuring each country. They experienced food, culture, and music while getting their passports stamped.
India: Many kids sampled Indian food for the first time and loved it! Bindu Nagaranthal served vegetable pulao, butter chicken, samosas, and mango fruit. She provided pictures from India and henna tattoos.
Korea: Won Andre provided a real treat with her Korean Kimbap (Korean version of sushi) and Korean cookies. She wore traditional Korean attire and brought outfits for the kids to try as well. She also brought chopsticks for the kids to practice with.
Scotland: Scottish shortbread cookies were a delicious treat prepared by Cindy White who once lived in Scotland. She educated the kids on the Highland games, bagpipes, kilts, Scottish wildlife, currency, and languages.
Italy: We enjoyed Italian favorites such as pizza bites, Milano cookies, and salted almonds provided by Beverly Dean and played a Q&A game while discussing photos of various sites in Italy.
Germany: Annette Goodson served up bratwurst, soft pretzels, and apple strudel. With polka music playing in the background, the kids learned about the Oktoberfest celebration and various German customs.
Thank you so much to all of our volunteers for providing this amazing adventure for the kids at Boysville! It is one that will not soon be forgotten.
All our love,
Annette, Donnette & Letty
