The children played two games. The boys had hula hoop race, where they ran as fast as possible to be the first. The girls play the “egg balancing race,” where they walked as fast as possible while balancing an egg on a spoon. And the children also did the karate demonstration.

In the end, there were many prizes for the first until the eighth. The prizes there were shoes, milk and money. The organizers gave them those prizes to cheer them.

Finally, we were very happy to participate in this race. We heard the cries, we saw many persons, and we took pictures.
