iCare Café Charity Project
Getting ready for our iCare Café Charity Project
Showering our MKK Kindness Garden with lots of love, care and kindness daily.
Children are set on weekly routines to take care of our garden. Everyone plays an important role to provide a healthy environment for our café’s ingredients. Their duties range from watering the plants, picking up litter and plucking off the weeds.
Art & Craft for Auctioning
In the classroom, children brainstormed together with their teachers on what would they like to make so they can bring them home and raise funds at the same time.
Each item is either made from recycled or reusable materials. Their artwork is a combination of creativity and intentions to save the earth. PG -came up with bibs made of old clothes and towels.
N1- made colour pencil holders out of plastic milk bottles.
N2 -reused glass bottles and beautified it using colours and drawings.
K1- worked their magic on umbrellas and presented them with meaning and life.
Last but not least, the K2s had painted on the stone , which is their paper weight.
Preparation for iCare Café
The teachers did the first step of the preparation, we tried the selected healthy recipe and we planned and listed down the steps that children will execute.
After finalizing on the ingredients required, children helped to harvest the ingredients from our garden.
