Cart Wheels, Hand Stands, Tiger Jumps - all the kids were active either on practicing, or sitting on the ground to rest. We then helped the kids to make a human pyramid together.
After the active practices we then went outside for a treasure hunt. Kids had to find the place, according to the picture that we give them.
After the treasure hunt, the kids had lunch. For lunch they got chicken noodle with a side dish of fresh mashed potatoes. Since the kids were really hungry, some even came up to us to get seconds. After the delicious lunch, some kids went swimming with Kenneth and the others were having Arts and Craft, after an hour, the kids switched. Two hours pass by and the next thing we notice, it was time to go, we sat around in a circle to tell the kids to bring extra clothes for tomorrow, since we are going to have a water fight!
Our team have had a full day First Aid and CPR course with instructors from Shanghai United Family Hospitals.

It's MONDAY again, there was a few new kids so we sat around in a circle to meet our new friends.
Then we played the "Hide the person" game so it would help the kids to know each other faster. All the kids wanted to guess, so it felt that everyone was participating in this game.
Afterwards some kids were in the dance room playing Pictionary, where kids would draw something and the others were guessing.
Then we had lunch, for lunch we had ham with vegetables and plain rice. With the kids finished with there food, we then played a game of silent ball. In this game the kids had to keep quiet and throw the ball around, the last one who doesn't talk wins.
Since this week was food week, we had prepared some cupcakes for the kids. After swimming, the kids were sitting on the table and each one of them are waiting for a cupcake to decorate. They loved it, kids had frosting all over there faces, and sprinkles all over there cupcakes.

Time pasts so fast! Its friday again! Even though most of us were exhausted we still had a big day headed towards us. Today was costume day, everyone was dressed up into Snow White, Captain America, Iron Man, Bat Man, fairies and etc.
In the morning after everyone introduced their outfit we played some games.
We started of with a game called Smile; a person has to go in the middle and try to make funny faces to make people laugh. After the kids started to get a little crazy we decided to play a game called Snake following with some crazy dancing. As the party was getting crazier, it was lunch time.
We had this delicious fish meat thing with rice! The kids loved it. They came for 2nds and some even 3rds! Today's lunch was very successful.
After lunch, we played a few games, and the older kids went upstairs for swimming while the younger ones stayed downstairs for art and craft. An hour later we came back together the actual costume party began.
It was CRAZY and FUN. We had partying music turned on, with an pinata filled with candy (one of the students brought it in), and best of all PRIZES!
Today was one of the best afternoons we had. Everyone was smiling when we said goodbye(:

BOOM BAM, we started the class with the big kids playing the game of charades. In this game the one kid had to pop the ballon and in the ballon there is a note including a word that he or she has to perform and show to the audience, so they could guess what the word is. In the ballon contain words like The Lion King, Nemo, and other movie names. After that the little kids danced Gangnam Style again, and they ended dance class with musical statues. Then we had lunch, we had curry and rice, with some vegetables on the side. In the afternoon the big kids went for swimming first, then after a hour the little kids went for their swimming lessons. During the shift the kids were doing arts and craft. Kids made dragons and wood models. Some kids were so interested in the wood models that they kept shouting for more. With everyone tired, we all sat down to play a game of duck, duck, goose waiting for the parents to pick them up.
The kids at The Summit were the chefs today helping out making the fruit salad with organic yoghurt for snack time.
