A GREAT SERVICE PROJECT
On October 30 the Institute had a Halloween party for the Primary children in the District which was a huge success. Rooms were decorated with mazes for the children to go through, another room had the goblin catcher guiding them through an obstacle course, in one room you had to count all the ghosts you could find, etc. The young adults went all out to make the party memorable and fun for the kids. Halloween is not celebrated as extensively in Ukraine as it is in the U.S., but it seems to get bigger with every passing year. We all need an excuse to dress up and have a party!
Mashi decorating the stairs leading to the decorated rooms
Alina making the puppet show sign
The Institute created their own puppet show to begin the evening.
The golbin catcher in the obstacle course - the lights were out in this room when the kids went through it, but the flash of the camera exposed all the mystery.
The kids following the arrows through the maze
Find the ghost room - there was also ultraviolet light in this room to make all the white ghosts quite visible.
One of the young adults made a pinata, but he made it with paper strips soaked in Elmer's glue. It almost took dynamite to break it!
The costumes were great fun for the kids as well as the young adults.
Even Michael Jackson with the white glove
Some of the Primary
Fatima and Veeka (somehow Veeka got her hair back to normal after the party!)
We had to dress for the occasion! Our activity was the Witch's Fishing Pond where they each got a little toy.
After the party the Institute had a birthday party for Pasha (in the center holding some goodies).
