Ingredion Scholarship Family Activity Day at the Dragon Club

On April 26th, with the help of Ingredion, 12 You Dao scholarship students and their families joined in a family activity with the company’s volunteers at the Dragon Club.
The volunteers, teachers, and parents worked together to create event. The children engaged in the activities together with their parents or grandparents or with a volunteer who acted in place of their parents.
The activity day was divided into three events: Little Einstein artists, I am a small artist, and Little Einstiens on the big stage.
The Little Einstein artists activity challenged the children to think creatively, tested their focus, and made them think. One of the teachers said, “Boys and girls, let’s listen and figure out what is making a sound in this box?” The teacher then placed one marble in the box. All of the children paid close attention to the teacher. The teacher then placed two more marbles in the box. Once the children were all focused on the activity the teacher finally revealed that the marbles were actually painting instruments and were creating artwork by rolling around in the box.
The children put on gloves and carefully placed the marbles in paint. They then placed the paint-covered marbles on the white paper in the box and moved it up and down. The children let out cheers of joy and marveled at the abstract artwork they were creating. One boy held up his masterpiece with a confident smile.
The older children were asked to take a surprised picture of themselves in shark’s mouth. They took their scared pictures and wondered how to place it in a shark’s mouth? It seemed like a very challenging task. Some of the children who did not carefully listen to the teacher’s instructions were very confused. Some of the children took too much time to cut out the shark’s teeth. In the end, with the help of the volunteers, the children were able to complete the task and all of them learned a valuable lesson about listening to the instructions.
During the second activity, the children shared with the activity partner all their creative ideas and masterpieces and developed a closer bond.
The final activity, Little Einstein on the big stage, encouraged the children and parents to show off their creative spirit and had the children and parents singing and dancing together on stage. They all completed several games and everyone was laughing and having a good time. As part of a special program of the Dragon Club, the teachers provided a small lesson to help improve parent-child communication. The parents all felt that 30 minutes was not enough time to learn all of the valuable lessons and continued to ask the teacher questions. The event went by very quickly, but was a great success for all of those involved.
We would like to thank Ingredion and all of their volunteers for supporting this great event. We would also like to thank the Dragon Club for their continued support. The event brought a lot of joy to the children and their families.
