Bilingual Kids celebrate Europe

Our workshops to celebrate European cultures and languages went down a treat with the children of Toulouse

Bilingual Kids Celebrates Europe!

 

 

 

On the 13th and 14th of May, Bilingual Kids were lucky enough to take part in the “semaine de l’Europe” organised by Toulouse Métropole at Quai de Savoirs. The theme was “Head in the Stars” which offered endless opportunities. In the Jardin de Plantes we put on workshops to immerse children and parents alike in the languages of Europe.

Hilda, Kerri, Fiona, Carla, Anya, Vanessa and Alina (members of the Bilingual Kids team) welcomed children of all ages to participate in workshops based on cultures and languages from around the world. For example the first session “I made my own Kente” went down a storm! A “Kente” is a Ghanian material covered in symbols and colours that are culturally significant (happiness, love, tolerance, perseverance…) The children were all too happy to create their own “Kente”. It is clear we were surrounded by budding artists!

Thanks to Carla and Alina we learnt more about the Romanian culture (parents and Bilingual Kids team included!). The children had fun drawing and repeating the animals of the jungle in Romanian. Without a doubt it sounded beautiful.

Lastly, Kerri and Vanessa carried out a reading of the well known English classic “A Very Hungry Caterpillar”. It tells the story of a greedy caterpillar who never stops eating. The children helped to construct an enormous caterpillar out of paper with all the food that the “Very Hungry Caterpillar” had eaten throughout the week. Each one left with a colourful butterfly stuck to their balloon.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our helpers for their dedication in the preparation and workshops, as well as the children and parents qui participated. Of course, a big thank you to the organisers of Toulouse Métropole and their associates.
