Kid's Action Day!

Once again it was time for our Kid's Action day for the kids in our sponsorship project. We started off as usual with some singing:
The theme was the dangers of alcohol: Marina and David showing how much fun you think you can have with alcohol...
Then they were joined by two friends who made them think about it... and told them how much fun you can have without it!
 And so they realised that maybe it wasn't all that fun to get walk funny and get sick...
So they got rid of the alcohol and went to have fun with their friends without it...
Then it was time for the different games and workshops... creative workshop: making Christmas cards for their sponsors in Finland!
Some fun new workshops: paper war
Potato relay: trying to push along a box of matches with a potato tied around your wasted and hanging between your legs... here are some of the volunteers trying it out...
 And the kids showing how it is done: (and it is a great workout for your thighs!)
My workshop was also new - balloon volleyball - but we didn't get a picture of that. It was great fun and I also realised that it was a good workout! Trying to keep a balloon in the air (and two or three if you want) for as long as you can: try it!

After about 2 hours of the kids going from workshop to workshop, it was time for us to finish off. We showed the kids what it is like to feel like they are drunk... turn around on the stick 10 times and then try to walk in a straight line...
 It was really funny seeing them try!! And hopefully taught them another danger of alcohol!
Then it was the prizes at the end...
And time to say goodbye until the next time!

Cute. It would be really good to follow the kids throughout life and be able to measure the impact (I guess I always think about data-driven work and evidence-based outcomes).
