Craft Workshop

Twenty-two members of Bhavan's Children Club, Navi Mumbai Kendra participated in a craft workshop on April 23, 2021. This was a virtual workshop and the sixth programme of the club.
The workshop started with a simple but effective method of making simple craft items like flowers, pots, boats and planes.
"We used to do these in our childhood," confessed a mother. "But our children now have sophisticated games to play with and are missing out on these simple pleasures. Thanks to the Bhavan's Children Club, we are remembering past games and hobbies," she added.
