Love Stories Told By Kids (For Kids!)
In this storytelling workshop, children were able to explore the love they currently experience in their lives, from family love to friendship love, and even to love they have for themselves. Through the use of illustrations, they learned to sequence their stories and share with others in a safe and fun environment. And they had a lot of fun doing it as you can see!
