VIVITA’s summer camp: Design a Moving Creature

The first day of the camp

On the first day as we gathered all together, excitement was probably in every soul of the camp. What will happen, who are all these other kids, are all these exciting things in this room allowed to be used, what is this place at all where we all are? In order to create acquaintance and a chill atmosphere, we immediately started a movement game, after which the children were divided into teams.

The second day of the camp

The morning of the second day started with the invigorating VIVITA yoga, after which we stimulated the mind and memory with the minefield game.

The third day of the camp

The third day was to finish, decorate and present the masterpieces. The prerequisite for the completion of the work was that all the techniques and tools learned at the beginning of the second day (saws and sawing, drilling and screwdriving, stapler and knots, and laser cutter) had been used. The teams reviewed their work in this light and supplemented it as necessary.
