Letting Kids Be Kids

What fun our last myCapeTown event was! Around 35 kids from Abaphumeleli Place of Safety in Khayelitsha joined us for a fun day at Zandvlei park on 5 March 2011. The kids arrived looking rather timid and shy…that didn’t last long! Once the jumping castle was spotted, the kids got running and jumping! Jungle gyms were climbed, castles jumped, soccer balls kicked and tables were coloured in (the colouring pages seemed to be ignored!).

By 12 pm the kids were exhausted and were all sitting along the vlei (water) edge regaining their energy. After some boerewors rolls (South African meat similar to sausage), juice and some sweets they got right back to having fun! What a wonderful day it turned out to be. At three o’clock the children were taken back home with their tummies full, bodies tired and having had a day they will most likely never forget!

Thanks to all who came out to help!
