Location: La Carpio

Today we hosted an art festival for the kids of La Carpio! Word spread through the streets as we started to prepare for the day. We displayed the happiness project on one of our freshly painted murals, taught children about brushing their teeth, made animal balloons, created hair wraps, painted faces, hosted drawing and jewelry making stations, played soccer, and gave out fresh fruit. We had a great time with the kids while they did their activities. After lunch, we saw a play done by the women of La Carpio about how they got from Nicaragua to Costa Rica. We left after we saw the play to get ready for our last night with the homestay families. We had a great dinner at Ana’s house and after we had a talent show. The night was full of jokes and laughs! It’s a night that none of us will soon forget!
