IWCS continues to take the annual festival as an opportunity to introduce the joys and culture of wood to the new generation. The Children Wood Education program was specifically created for the children to advance youth development in wood culture. All activities were packed with quality learning opportunities.
The class provided ample educational resources and practices that sparked children’ interests through playing. It was a good opportunity for the young participants to gain wood related experience in an active and amusing way.
The very young participants acquired information regarding wood and the natural environment during the learning session and drew inspiration from the wooden toys and puzzle games.
The wooden toys and games, such as colored blocks, allowed children to exercise their creativity and imagination in different ways. Meanwhile, these versatile play sets never failed to surprise the little fans with lots of fun. In fact, they were so popular that all the participants just couldn’t stop playing with them.
The program was highlighted by voting on the International Youth Furniture Making Invitational. The children and their parents were invited to select a set of desk and chair of their choice.
The Drawing Event with the topic of “I Love Trees” took place following the education sessions in order to enhance children’s appreciation and understanding of forest and timber.
Everyone was impressed by the joyful educational activities. While the children were entertained by the fun-filled program, the basic but useful knowledge of wood and forest reservation has been passed on to the young generation. All participants enjoyed a happy World Wood Day.
