China Care hosted a full day trip to Chinatown for NU students, the kids, and parents of China Care! We got dimsum for lunch in Chinatown, went on a scavenger hunt, and got to go shopping!! Our kids and parents said this was one of their favorite events so far!!
The kids spent time making friendship bracelets for friends and family! We also had a station to make floating boats to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival (Duanwu Festival). The kids and parents were also able to try Chinese zhongzi - glutinous rice stuffed dumplings with different fillings wrapped in bamboo leaves. Then we had relay races with our mentees and mentors!!
This event is geared towards the mentor and mentee pairings in our Mentorship Program, but everyone is welcome to come, especially those who are interesting in learning more about joining the program!! We will be playing various board games such as Jenga, Catan, Monopoly, Taboo, and more!
