we're bringing storytelling into our program.

Here at mishwar, we believe that imaginative play is one of the most important aspects of childhood, allowing us to escape into magical worlds where we can be in charge of our own story. And seeing as we are really just big kids ourselves, we are always trying to find new ways to open up as many opportunities as possible for us and the children to be creatively inspired and engaged. So, from now on, we will be reading a new book weekly, paired with an art activity.  

This week, our debut book was the wonderful classic, ‘the tiger who came to tea’, by Judith kerr. Our friend Yara translated the story and monica decided it would be a perfect opportunity to practice her Arabic, whilst also making the kids laugh at her sometimes (or maybe always) funny pronounciation of words. with the help from our newest volunteer leane, as well as our friend in the camp, Souzan, we painted everyone’s faces to mimic the main character in the book, the tiger, who we lovingly named tony. Both camps and the entire community were spotted in laughter, smiles, and tigers all hungry for more storytelling. We cannot wait to bring a new adventure next week.
