For the 4th consecutive time the youth technical advisory committee of the Family Planning association of Srilanka held the kids stationary items donation programme on the 22nd of December. More than 100 children and parents were gathered for the event and the kids were waiting to have fun and to get their new stationary pack with smiling eyes. Some of them were playing with balloons, dancing for the music beats and were playing games with our entertainer Kapila. They were making noises of animals, jumping here and there, singing, dancing and going in lines like a train whistling and hooting.
The yummy chocolate donuts made them have more and more of them and then they were even more thrilled with the face painting. They were eagerly waiting in lines to get their face painted. Spider man, superman, Ben ten, butterflies, flowers, cars, Mickey mouse and many pretty paintings were on their faces and the kids were happily posing for photos.
Then they were even more thrilled by the magic show in which they won yummy sweets, caps and hand bands from the magician. They also got the chance to perform magic with the magic wand and the kids felt that they were the magician at that moment. The magician took out rabbits from papers, made Faluda from water, got flowers out of clothes, and many more interesting things.
Excitement was not over. Here comes Santa clause with sweets. Santa clause danced with the kids gave them yummy toffees and even asked general knowledge questions from them. Finally after dancing till they got very tired the Hony President of the FPASL, National council members, Dep Director of FPASL, Director HIV and Advocacy, SARYN coordinator and many more invitees came there and gave away their new year’s school items.
They all went home happily with their bags full of new school items, tummies filled with good food and a lot of fun experiences!
