Toys for the cafe

large pile of finger puppets

king and queen hand puppets

lovely soft cuddly animal hand puppets

What a treat to find a parcel waiting for us when we went to the post office today. Kate from Union Baptist church, one of our link churches sent us a parcel with puppets cards and dressing up clothes for the childrens' corner in the cafe as well as some small gifts for Jess and Sam. Last week I was playing with a 7 year old girl who has learning disabilities while the radicales manicured her mum's nails , as she got more and more excited she was pinching me as well as throwing wooden blocks and wooden jigsaw pieces around and I thought we really ought to have some softer toys! It is wonderful to work in partnership with our link churches and great to receive such wonderful toys that the children will really enjoy playing with.
If anyone else would like to send us toys puppets or dressing up clothes for the children to play with in the cafe our address is Apartado 34, Cusco , Peru .
Thankyou Kate !
