A carnival and a preschool education forum were held on Wednesday at China Welfare Institute Kindergarten to mark International Children's Day which falls on Friday.

The kids all dressed up for the event and enjoyed body painting, bubbles, a catwalk and other activities on Wednesday morning.

Officials from the China Welfare Institute, the Shanghai Education Commission, the Shanghai Century Publishing Group and other organizations watched the kids playing at the carnival.

A forum about festival celebrations at kindergartens was also held, where teachers at the kindergarten and East China Normal University shared related cases, showing the importance and value of festival events on the healthy growth of children.

A book titled “Enjoy the Colors of the World” also debuted. The book is about how kids grow up happily in a free, open and multi-cultural environment with festival celebration activities.

Teachers at the China Welfare Institute Kindergarten are skilled at guiding kids in etiquette, customs and values via open and entertaining festival activities that are carefully organized according to the characteristics of preschool children. 

For example, they have given out red-envelops to kids when students returned to school after the Spring Festival and made zongzi and hung wormwood on the door for the Dragon Boat Festival.

They not only celebrate Chinese festivals but also foreign festivals, hoping to enable children to develop qualities and abilities that enable them to adapt to social conditions and achieve their own life-long development.
