The Hanoitimes - The Temple of Literature’s Cultural and Scientific Centre has recently organized a press conference to give information of many cultural activities for children in summer vacation in 2018.
This is the first time, the Temple of Literature hosts a series of cultural activities for children during the three-month vacation so as to educate children on Vietnamese traditional cultural values and improve their life skills.
The highlight of the program is the interaction and experience with artists and artisans. Children will be introduced and explored traditional crafts, including ‘do’ paper painting, kite making, and pottery, as well as letting the kids try their hands at making complete handicraft products.
In the framework of the program, painting classes will be held from 9 am to 11 am every Sunday morning, in which the painter group will teach children about watercolour paintings and instruct them on how to paint in watercolour. The children’s artworks will then be auctioned to raise funds for poor children across the country.

Under the program, children will have a chance to learn about the studies and examinations of students in the past, and take part in a kite making contest, with the winner being sent to compete at international events.
Especially, the Game show “Cooking with comedian Xuan Bac” is a contest on processing skills for traditional dishes such as jelly gloves, plain rice flan, spring rolls, etc.
The program is expected to provide Vietnamese children with a deeper understanding of their ancestor’s cultural heritage through folk games and crafts.
