2012 Summer Program

Learn the art of play using what you have – make toys and games with recycled materials, including a water bottle galimoto (a push car). Make instruments, dolls, tops, kites and boats inspired by the many traditions and designs of Africa. Learn that whatever our differences in geography and resources, play speaks across languages and cultures. Learn new games. Perhaps trade stamps and coins with new friends in Africa.
