We had the event to make Star Festival decoration with children in preparation for July 7, Tanabata.
39 people including 5 groups of foreign families and 8 groups of Japanese families participated.
Following the easy instruction by the lecturers, all of us including children worked very hard to make flower arrangements for Tanabata decoration.
We were very happy to put paper decorations and complete the flower arrangement that showed the story of Orihime (Vega) and Hikoboshi (Altair) on the milky way background.
After that, we enjoyed exchange game between foreign families and Japanese families. All of us including small children eagerly listened to the picture story of Tanabata. Candies were presented to children as a participation award.
.
We, staffs, were very touched to hear that most of the children answered “Mother” to our question “Whom do you present the flower?”,
