The more we go and visit GK Pinagsama, the more we connect and communicate with the kids and their community. It was our 4th installment thanks to a one year program of Esquire Financing. The kids were earlier and with more anticipation as to what workshop we will be doing that morning. There were 73 kids who joined. The most so far.

The morning’s activity was not just about Art. We had it themed to Father’s Day! Every year, the world recognizes a day dedicated to Dads. This year it will be celebrated on June 15.

After the usual getting to know, we had a game called Mahal Ko Ang Tatay Ko (I love my Father). In this game, the groups had to assemble a picture by cutting combinations of colored paper. The first picture was family. The second was a whole body of a Father. It was a delight to see kids and volunteers collaborating together to form different illustrations.

Next we had Kuya Robby in his usual artsy self to explain how to make Pop-up cards for their Fathers. Although normal cards are good, pop-ups just shows more creativity and flare. After 45 minutes of designing, we asked the kids to write their own personal messages. That was the most awesome idea we did. The kids expressed their hearts in the cards. 🙂

After our usual lunch, we had the kids line up for their tokens. We told the kids to make more pop-up cards for their other family members. See you on June 28 9AM for the next one!
