The school holidays in Algiers are now here so it is time for our crafty workshops to begin…
Starting this Wednesday, we have planned 6 sessions for children aged 5-11 to have some fun playing with puppets along with making a few of their own to take home. If you have booked places I look forward to seeing you sometime over the next two weeks! If you are in Algiers or will be during the Summer watch out for our crafty holiday programme that we are planning right now which will be jam packed with arty crafty fun.
We are also hoping to enjoy the beautiful Spring weather by sowing seeds and planting some flowers and plants as part of our ‘Just one seed’ project.
Have a great week!
Oh, and before I forget..a big, big thank you to everyone who has been sending in fabulous donations……Pictures are being taken and I will post some up shortly, but in the meantime here are just a few of the sweet, soft toys that have arrived..
Wow! I wasn’t quite expecting such a phenomenal response to our puppet making workshops. In just two days all 64 places have been taken but, with so many others still getting in touch to book a place we have decided to add on another date with two more sessions So, for those of you in Algiers that want to attend, on Sunday 26th March there will be sessions at 10-12 and 1-3...places are going fast so get in quick !
What is also really lovely is that a few organisations have got in touch and asked us if we could hold craft sessions for them, including one that wants us to help them paint a mural on the side of their community room…of course, we said yes! We want to reach all sections of the community so if you know of an organisation/school/group etc who who might be interested in our crafty workshops do get in touch and let me know – I would love to hear from you!

Next week it is ‘International book giving day’ so we are busy making up gift bags that include a book, crayons, sweets and a few other treats which we will be giving out to children on the day…I hope it doesn’t rain!
For us in Algeria the weekend starts tomorrow, I am planning to spend the time making an Emu puppet for our event next month…I hope you too have fun whatever you do!
