February 2015 | Elias Santos Dubón & Jesús Blanco | Back to School (Literacy and Arts & Crafts)

With the new school year around the corner, we dedicated the month of February to activities to help the kids prepare. The first workshop we did was arts and crafts with yarn. We taught the kids to use yarn to design mini-kites with the color combination of their choice. This workshop helped them focus and concentrate, as well as provide the satisfaction of creating something from nothing. Afterward, we had a literacy and book-making workshop to reinforce reading and writing skills, an area of difficulty for many of the school-age Coco Solo kids. – Elias Santos Dubón and Jesús Blanco
