這是我們在睦祥育幼院舉辦的第三屆 Jia-Xin的冬日慶典,但是,這是我們第一次在睦祥的新家舉辦! 我們帶來很多色彩繽紛的布料及食材,準備和小朋友一起親手製作巧克力馬克杯蛋糕!

It’s our third Santa Jia-Xin winter solstice in at MuHsiang Children’s Home ! It’s our first one based in their new home and we brought over heaps of colorful fabric and ingredients to make vegan chocolate mug cakes with! (English Below)

在期盼對未來環境更友善的前提下,嚮光開始以回收物品取代塑膠商品做為我們使用的藝術材料。除了歲末節慶活動之外,嚮光通常拒絕贈送玩具或禮物;這次無論如何,我們決定鼓勵孩子去製作自己的玩具。運用二手布料變成無縫絨毛娃娃,讓孩子們專注於腦力激盪、繪畫和創作自己的娃娃。

今天我們的老師Rhea 帶領小朋友和大朋友一步一步地製作布娃娃。休息時我們享用了一頓非常美味的蔬食午餐。午餐是Josette Penzel 準備的,她用綠豆製作菲律賓家常料理,讓我們了解菲律賓的飲食文化。我們也享用了法國吐司上面放上番薯,灑上鹽與胡椒,旁邊搭配水果沙拉。當小朋友完成布娃娃的裝飾之後,她們輪流用馬克杯製作巧克力蛋糕。Fresh Bakery & Café 很大方的提供蔬食鮮奶油給我們,好讓小朋友可以在蛋糕上做裝飾。小朋友們還把Jia-Xin 和她同學帶著愛製作,並從美國寄來的手工裝飾品擺好。

謝謝大家!

Hoping to be more environmentally friendly in the future, Bright Side has begun banning plastic bottles that can be brought to workshops and look into recycled goods for the materials we use. Bright Side Projects generally bans gift-giving of toys except during our end of the year activities. This time, however, we decided to empower kids to make their own toys. Utilizing secondhand fabrics that could be made into sewless plushies kids were in charge of brainstorming, drawing, and creating their own toys.

Today we had Teacher Rhea taking us through the steps for the plushie creation with the kids and our Big Friends. We took a break for a delicious plant-based lunch prepared by Josette Penzel who introduced us to some Filipino culture via home-cooking with mung beans. This was supplemented by French bread topped with a sweet potato salt and pepper spread, alongside the staple fruit salad. After kids were done embellishing their plushies they took turns to make the chocolate mug cakes. Fresh Bakery & Café generously supplied us with plant-based whip cream which the kids had fun with in decorating their cakes. They set up the hand crafted items that were made with love by Jia-Xin and her classmates, sent from the US!
