The International Greetings Exchange

A morning with families in Arbury Library sharing ways of greeting a friend and making wearable words with the wonderful badge making machine. Above is the greeting exchange board.

It was interesting how many conversations started, the activity appeared to help non-english speakers get involved in the workshop chat. Also, children, initially reticent to acknowledge their parents language, added the greetings to the exchange board and made their badge with great pride. I wonder how this could be developed further?
