During this year's Gurupurnima, there were loads of sessions planned for the kids which revolved around topics of Helping Others, Anger, Positivity, Sharing, Teamwork etc. to name a few.
Every single day was full of fun with various activities such as Crafts, Presentations, Poster preparations, Games, Snacks & a lot more! The Ymht girls & boys led these outstanding fun & interactive activities with the Lmht kids, leaving them with some great memories.
The Ymht girls guided the Lmht kids in making creative, colorful & encouraging posters with lots of images focused on the theme of Sharing. Lmht kids were provided with magazines, crayons, pictures of Dada, Swami, Niruma, Deepakbhai & other materials in order to create these posters. While making the posters, the kids learned to share ideas & materials. This was indirectly incorporated into this 'Sharing is Caring' activity.
The Ymht boys managed the game's session where Lmht kids played relay games such as limbu chamchi (lemon & spoon), blocks, memory, scrabble, ring toss & standing on one foot. The kids were divided into 12 teams. Two teams played at one game station at a time & then rotated to a different game so that each team had a chance to play all 6 games. Ymht boys encouraged the kids to play the games as well as cheer their team on.
The Lmht kids as well as the Ymht boys & girls learned to work together as a team, supporting & motivating each team member, all the while having fun. By the end of the sessions, the Lmht kids & Ymht boys & girls had formed a special bond.
It was a wonderful learning experience for both the groups!
The grand finale for the kids was their Cultural Program. They did a drama on 'Nav Kalamo' (9 Intents) & prepared a show, dances & performances that Pujyashree & Mahatmas enjoyed watching. All the Lmht's from various states & centers had worked hard for the preparation & rehearsal 4-6 months in advance.
They had lots of fun rehearsing & participating in it. To add to their wonderful memories & experiences, all the kids were awarded with a certificate for their participation in cultural program.
