During the two-day programme, children and their parents have the chance to watch artisans make toys from leaves, straw, paper and famous Dong Ho folk paintings and to make the toys by themselves with assistance from artisans. The activities help arouse children’s curiosity and increase their love for Vietnamese folk toys. Children will also have the chance to play many folk games such as rope skipping, tug of war, and shuttlecock, which help them stimulate their creativity and improve their understanding about the world around them. On May 27, children and their parents will enjoy music performances from Muong ethnic minority students and members of the UNESCO Ca Tru Club. Director of the Ethnology Museum Vo Quang Trong said the programme aims to bring special gifts to children on the occasion of International Day for children and help educate them about love for traditional Vietnamese culture.
