Today was the day when the Hazelhutters practiced their arts and crafts. This began with gathering wild cherries to make a delicious jam. We held a competition to see who could gather the most cherries in the time we had before it rained. In the end everyone was rewarded because they had all tried very hard. Then we guessed the weight of what we collected - over 6 kilos!!!!
Our next activity was to design a T-shirt and sew on a Hazelhut badge using the sewing machine.
Before lunch some of the boys helped to make a banana cake: they were exceptional cooks and we will be sharing their cake with the other family members on Friday!
In the afternoon, it was the girls turn to make some very tasty burgers for our dinner.
In the afternoon we went all musical, learning a new Hazelhut song and listening to each other sing our favourite songs.
Two of the children even spent their free time doing arty things: Wow!
We finished the day eating those tasty burgers and a very delicious tira mi sù brought in by one of the children's mums - Thank you, Mariangela!
