Oct 8, 2012 The Multilingual Playgroup Picnic Report / 多言語子育てひろば ピクニック開催報告

On October 8, 2012, The Multilingual Playgroup Picnic was held along Kamogawa River, near Demachiyanagi Station.

Number of participants: approx. 70

Thank you for coming to Jafore Picnic! The weather was just perfect. It was sunny with light winds and warm enough for playing in the water. All ages and nationalities: from one month old babies
 to grandparents, from various countries, and locals and tourists, gathered for the picnic. While children ran around, played in the fountain, and blew bubbles, parents talked with new people, became friends and exchanged information. We were delighted that some parents were reunited at the picnic. After lunch time, we had a special guest who read two picture books, one in Japanese and the other in English. We all took great pleasure in listening to the stories. We enjoyed clapping our hands and stamping the ground to join the storyteller. 
Thank you again for taking the time to be a part of Jafore picnic. We look forward to seeing you again soon. 

The next multilingual playgroup is on Mon. November 12, 2012 at Hokori Heart Demachi.
