Easter at the Orphanage...

This year the Orthodox and Catholic/Protestant Easter is the same weekend (it doesn't happen every year!) This week the school holidays are this week, ending with the Easter weekend. The last two years we have organised something at Easter for the kids:  see here - 2009, 2010.  This year they asked us when we were coming :-) 

We also have a team from the Czech Republic here at the moment, so we asked them if they would like to help us make a nice program for the children during their school holidays: They helped us with the story of passover and Easter (with some acting out by the rest of the team which I didn't photograph):










Then we had an "Easter Egg Hunt" for paper Easter Eggs which we had hidden around the room beforehand. This was something very new for the kids and they LOVED it! We then coloured in those Easter eggs (and some other Easter related activities):



















And at the end we gave out chocolate Easter eggs to each of the children...
The Czech team, the children, teachers, and our great team of volunteers all had a really lovely time, as did I!
