A sunny afternoon. Sophia and I went to the Mercato Metropolitano near Elephant & Castle for helping with Easter session for the local kids. The task owner, Serena warmly welcomed us, and then we had pizzas and gelato with these lovely kids.

After lunch, we moved to an open space. The children spilt into 2 groups by age for different workshops. Sophia took care of the younger group who attended the pottery workshop and took photos for the activities. I supervised the elder group who took the photography and art drawing workshops to make sure they would not break these cameras and hurt themselves.

These kids showed their brilliant talent for art, which surprised all of us adults. Bravo! All these kids, no matter whether naughty, bold, quiet, or shy, are really cute and full of energy!

After the workshops, Sophia and I left after cleaning up everything and seeing their families pick them up for home. Sophia said that working with kids is the greatest art for her. That’s true, but we are still on our way.

This is brilliant Sophia and Tori! I'm glad you came out and helped the kids bring out their creativity ☺️I really enjoyed my time with them during the Christmas club week in 2021 where we baked and made Christmas decorations ☺️
