Children’s Day in Thailand

Children's Day

 

“Children are the future of the nation, if the children are intelligent, the country will be prosperous.”

-Thai saying

 

If you live in Thailand, you probably already know that this is a wonderful place to be a kid. Ample sun for expanding energy and growth, abundant agriculture of tropical fruits and veggies, not to mention the world renowned nature of the “Land of Smiles.”

But even further, Thailand nurtures children and acknowledges their importance as the future of their country.  In 1955 the country established National Children’s Day to celebrate the significant role of their children. From Northern Thailand to the Southern Peninsula, the second Saturday of the month is saved for activities that fill their youth with joy.

At Kids Yoga Garden, we are committed to expanding the physical, mental and emotional intelligence of children through awareness and sensory-based creative activities. We love serving the mind, body and souls of our community by creating a nurturing environment to grow.

This year we will join the festivities with a FREE Children’s Day BBQ Potluck in our garden this Saturday, January 13th from 11 am – 2 pm. We will be joined by some of our favorite teachers, facilitators and families to welcome you to our space and some super special activities.

 

Workshops will include:

+ Arts and Crafts

+ Yoga Games

+ Tepee construction

+ Chess and Robotics

+ Circus skills

 

All Day enjoy:

+ BBQ (w/ veggie and vegetarian options)

+ s’more roasting

+ face painting

+ community

 

 

 

Holiday Craft Camp

Let’s use less cash and more creativity this holiday season! Expose your children to the magic of their own imagination as we gather to create gifts, cards and movements that carry the cheer of the season with a smaller ecological footprint.

This craft camp will include tutorials on how to make 100% natural soap, DIY gift wrap, recycled snow globes, ornaments, cider, cookies in a jar and much more!

As always there will also be plenty of movement by the way of yoga, dancing and even Thai boxing. We will exercise our inner performers with drama, music and storytelling activities incorporating different traditions from around the globe.

And we’ll round it all off with a celebration on the final day!

Ages 3 -12 welcome

Cupcake Love

 

Last weekend our friend Hana brought her mom P’Sai, the owner of Love to Bake Home Bakery to the garden to help us with a special workshop. We got to work with P’Sai’s special baking instruments to mold icing fondant into a host of feathery friends. We rolled and flattened, cut and placed our fondant on top of the yummy vanilla cake. By the end of class there were little owls on a branch and also some ducks and chickens. Thanks P’Sai for your patient and caring tutorial! We had so much fun!

One of the cupcakes became our snack, and the other we took home to share with our families, mmm mmm good.

 

Making Soap

Let’s face it, we like to get dirty. Playing in the garden, digging up worms, paint ball, art explorations— you name it, we’ve tried it. So when Auntie Orn suggested making some of her 99% natural soap with us we couldn’t resist the opportunity to learn how to clean up– the garden fresh way. We used coconut oil, bio char, tomatoes, butterfly pea flowers, tamarind and more to make fun leaf molds of silky soap.

 

 

Thanks again Auntie Orn! See you tomorrow for eco brick making and compost creation! Untitled-1111 (2)

Shampoo making

 

This weekend we had the pleasure of hosting Auntie Orn in our kitchen for an all-natural shampoo making workshop.

First we recorded our garden fresh ingredients in pictures and words.

Then we designed our bottle packaging and named our shampoo, ‘Dove’, ‘Eat Me’, and ‘Song kran’ were some of our favorite titles.

Next, we added our ingredients to a large bowl to prepare for boiling.

Finally, we strained our fragrant mixture and bottled it to take home.

Thanks Auntie Orn for the visit, we can’t wait for our next Sustainability for Kids workshop! See you on Saturday for soap-making!
