一直以來嚮光協會就強調人與人的聯結,大朋友跟孩子的互動與陪伴對我們而言是比任何課程還重要的,所以我們找了一天回到了清泉部落,與好久不見的孩子們共進早午餐,來一場鬆餅小約會!

運用簡單健康的純素天然食材,跟孩子一起自己動手做各式鬆餅與煎餅,從調製麵糊到烘烤成型,考驗著孩子的耐心與細心,大家七手八腳的幫忙,都做的好開心也吃的好開心!再來點Daisy特製香噴噴的綜合蔬菜烤地瓜,營養加分健康滿點!

因為沒有平時課程緊湊的時間壓力,飯後大夥自然而然的開始聊天玩遊戲,孩子們慎知開始一個個爬上大朋友的身上騎馬打仗,好不快活啊!大朋友一個人對上三四個孩子,在冬日裡都玩到一身汗了呢!幾個害羞沒有報名課程的孩子,也打開心房一起玩開了,看著孩子們臉上停不下來的笑容,心裡也跟著暖了起來:)

因為有你們這些可愛的大朋友、小朋友,一路陪伴嚮光協會一起學習一同成長,才讓我們更有能力與動力繼續堅持我們的理念,2017新的活動也請多多指教,期待3月在清泉第一堂的金工課程喲!

Between our October and January workshop, we felt we would miss the kids of ChingChuan if we did not see them! Because of our annual year end Santa Jia-Xin activities, we had to focus a lot of time on fundraising and venturing to different areas for our gift creation workshops. So before December madness and after our woodcraft workshops in Orchid Island, we wanted to have to share a plant-based brunch with kids, simply to connect with them.

Initially we planned to cook “for” the kids – but this was impossible. Kids were eager to join and get involved as they always have during our workshops! A delicious plant-based lunch of waffles (waffle maker thanks to Kelly Lin) and carrot cake pancakes were slowly created while the sweet potato/potato/veggie tray grilled in the oven. Kids had a wonderful time getting the salts and olive oil into the veggie tray – it was our first time to give this recipe a go and it did not disappoint! RUNIVORE Chia Seed coconut milk pudding with fresh fruit was the dessert of the day.

The best part of the day was being able to play with the kids. We did not have many Big Friends attend so there were about 3-4 kids for each Big Friend. For many faces it was their first Bright Side workshop. Some were shy to register so directly came to the venue and peered in. We were more than happy to share in the creation process and the vegan meal with them and also some guardians. Always eager for a chance to bond with the community. The day ended with cleaning and about 2 hours of playing and chatting with these newcomers who we hope to see again in March for our metalsmith workshop! So fortunate to find new exciting teachers to showcase new skills and tools of creation for the children to open new doors and opportunities!
