Natsumatsuri “Summer Festival” July 2012

Here are some pictures of festival I organized last summer.  Natsumatsuri is a traditional Japanese Summer Festival during which we celebrate the season in Yukata (summer Kimonos). Children participated in Japanese culture at Jacaranda Tree in Amsterdam. We did creative activities and games such as making Uchiwa (Fans) and water balloon fishing.
