Children's activities at Watford Celebration 2017.

Most activities took place in the Littlebury Hall and some in the Church. 

The children enjoyed a Bouncy Castle outside from ‘Ben's Bouncy Castle’

The children had the opportunity to send MESSAGES OF LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE CHILDREN OF MANCHESTER  with Marijah Butcher

The Brahma Kumaris offered exciting craft activities for children focusing on highlighting Values and Virtues, creating Blessing cards for families and the world. 

At 12.30pm, the children had the opportunity to learn the 'Kathak' one of the ten major forms of Indian classical dance. The origin of Kathak is traditionally attributed to the traveling bards of ancient northern India, known as Kathakars or storytellers. The children were taught by Mansi Dabral from the Mansi Dabral Kathak Dance Academy.

We had a Face painter from Pumpkin Crafts with spontaneous and creative face painting designs which  delighted the children

At 2.45pm, Alexander Williams read children's stories from his book 'Wendy the Whale'.

There were also cakes, biscuits and more... 

We asked a Donation of £2 per plate of international food, which was served in the MCCC while hot and cold drinks with biscuits were available all day in the MCCC and Littlebury Hall with a small donation.

We all enjoyed very much! Thank you to all those who worked so hard to prepare those delicious dishes!!
