This is our fourth woodcraft workshop and we made something new and learned something different yet again! Franky Hwang was our teacher from SanZhi who joined us on our outing to MuHsiang Children’s Home this time. As per custom for our year end activities, we hope that kids can create their own gifts for themselves.
From branches, we shaped and sanded these as handles for spoons and forks – these can be used as eco-friendly utensils on-the-go instead of the disposables that we have increasingly become accustomed to. We then shared a delicious curry lunch prepped by Rhea that included potatoes and three color varieties of sweet potatoes paired with rice or pita!
After lunch kids started hammering away for personalized boxes. It was a difficult task for many to aim true but part of the process was failing and learning – each child was so determined to complete their wooden boxes that this took longer than planned. In the end, having these creations in which to store their personal belongings was a wonderful gift to themselves.
Gingerbread decoration came up next much to the delight of everyone. When we first came in 2013, we brought along gingerbread with us. But now many of the kids to the children’s home are new faces and have never had this experience. We hope next year we can also make it out of scratch! Kids were also given the opportunity to vote on a charitable cause this year for Bright Side Projects to donate $1000 NT to. After letting them know about several wonderful organizations and their work, they selected Mary’s Doggies to assist their work in de-sexing and re-homing stray dogs in the country. Thanks all for another great day!
