It is a tradition at Day Nursery for our centers to host a family meal around Thanksgiving. Today I would like to share some pictures with you sent to me from Sarah Parks, Director of our downtown Federal Center. Prior to the today’s lunch, the children were treated to a special visit from Young Audiences performing artists The Asante Touring Company and their program TUCHEZE NGOMA: THE DRUMS OF KENYA. The performance introduced the children to drumming, dancing, and singing of Kenya, in East Africa. They were amazed by the thumb piano handmade out of wood and a garden rake. Sarah says the children really enjoyed the drums–both playing them & listening to them. The children also learned about Kenya & how to say “Hey! Let’s play the drums!” in Kiswahili, the Kenyan national language.
Many parents stayed to enjoy the Thanksgiving feast with their children, including this dad who wore a bib & allowed his toddler to feed him. That is one cool Dad. Happy Holidays.
