The festive closing of the Children's Book Week took place on Sunday 16 October: the Children's Book Festival!
Reading and reading are of course high on the agenda at 2Samen. We encourage children to read as much as possible. We are not talking about ‘technical reading’, but we want to stimulate reading pleasure. Because if you enjoy something, you will automatically do it more! And before you know it, you’ll lose yourself in the wonderful worlds of your books. That is why we were happy to be present at the Children’s Book Festival again this year.
Entirely in the Gi-Ga-Green theme, our stall was beautifully decorated with autumn leaves, branches, chestnuts and pine cones. We gave two craft workshops: making dream branches and crafting fantasy insects. The children loved working with natural materials such as cork, wool, branches and leaves. They made the most beautiful creations and our craft tables were in full swing all day long. We were thrilled to see so much interest in the craft workshops!
In addition to the workshops, 2Samen organized a pendulum competition. Several out-of-school care centers took part in the competition and made a beautiful fabric garland, which, of course, was also decorated according to theme. The streamers really made the day a party! The location that has made the most creative garland can choose a nice prize. Of course, all kinds of other activities were organised. Theater group KABOEM gave a performance and the children searched for different animals during the search. Writers and illustrators were also present. All in all: a wonderful day!
