The children were stomping and clapping, laughing and shouting, and no one scolded them for it. Today, everything was allowed, and not just allowed but even encouraged.
It all started with introductions. Despite the fact that some, as mentioned above, had already met, and others were regular members of our club, the introductions took place, and it was a lot of fun. Remember Oster’s story about how Monkey, Python, Parrot, and Baby Elephant decided to get to know each other again? Well, our little participants didn’t deny themselves that pleasure.
Everyone formed a circle, and one by one, they stated their names and what they liked most. The next participant stated their name, preference, and the name and preference of their neighbor. The third had to remember not only their neighbor but also the name and preference of the first participant. And so on in a circle. You’ll agree that such introductions are much more fun than the usual ones.
