We created colorful paper fans (so-called “Uchiwa”) last weekend. We colored them with markers on the first day, and also decorated with manicure on the second day.

We created lovely thank you cards for Mother’s Day by using origami paper-works and glitters. We can easily imagine happy smiles on mothers’ faces! Although we have been under COVID-19 restrictions for already a long time, we would be glad if children enjoyed our activities.
Thankfully, Saya donated a beautiful painting to our organization.
While schools have been still closed and we had to refrain from going out due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we held a workshop with children under stress. We drew on cardboards and made cards. After having the workshop, we gave donated snacks to attended children.

We used collected cosmetics that have been donated to our organization as painting materials. Attended children were excited to draw with cosmetics that they usually don’t have a chance to touch.
