The Jingjieniao Home is in Xi’an, Shan’xi province. It provides services for the mentally handicapped from poverty-stricken families. The organization is dedicated to improving their spirit and living standards and advocating for every disabled individual to have adequate access to social resources.
Volunteers and teachers from Jingjieniao organized activities to celebrate Easter with mentally ill students. Our activity today was to find colored eggs. Since Easter is not as celebrated in China, our students were unfamiliar with the holiday. The staff had fun explaining the traditions of Easter, and hiding the colored eggs in the corners of the classroom.
The students set out to find their lucky eggs. They took the search very seriously and were quite competitive too. Eventually, every student was able to find an egg. But the game wasn't over yet! There was a surprise you must find by breaking the egg. Once smashed, our students were delighted to find candies and toys. We all loved the game and the surprise at the end left everyone smiling.
After the activity, we closed the day by making our own color eggs. The children would use cooked eggs to show off their artistic ability and had fun being creative.
