Foster Home Visit (10/14/2017) – 児童養護施設訪問

For Halloween, JOMO JET members dressed up in costumes and visited a foster home in Shibukawa.
ハロウィンにJOMO JETメンバーが仮装をし、渋川市にある児童養護施設を訪問しました。
We enjoyed many Halloween activities together. We tossed a ball of yarn to each other as we said our names, making a giant spider web together. The children decorated paper bags so they had a candy bag for the day.

The children then moved from one game station to another in groups to play three games and get candy. They made Halloween masks, played a carnival game where they tossed a ball into the mouth of a jack-o- lantern, and had a mummy race by wrapping their partner with toilet paper.

At the end, all students went apple bobbing. The apples were quite big for their little mouths, but everyone was able to fish an apple out of the water! Even a staff member participated, grabbing their apple with their mouth right away! We hope the children had a fun time celebrating Halloween with us, and we hope to see them again in the near future!

Thank You! * Halloween Crafts Event * ハロウィンイベント

On Monday, October 10th (national holiday), JOMO JET held its first ever Halloween craft event at the Gunma Prefectural Showa Government Building. There were smiles all around as we made various crafts to get everyone in the Halloween spirit!

10月10日(木)に、群馬県庁昭和庁舎でJOMO JETはハロウィンのイベントを開催しまた。色々なハロウィンの工作や、雑貨を作りながら、皆さん楽しんでいました!


Young children and their parents from the community made Halloween crafts alongside wonderful ALT volunteers. We made paper bag lanterns, paper plate spider candy bags, toilet paper bats, and paper bag monster puppets. It was a bit messy at times, but everyone in attendance had a wonderful time!


A popular craft was “put the spider on the web” in which participants got to decorate a paper spider and attempt to place it on a giant web! Our spider web was covered in many spiders by the end of the day!



Everyone was encouraged to wear a costume and we saw a variety of costumes that day. We had Snow White, Elsa from Frozen, Mickey Mouse, and a couple of police officers make an appearance! Thank you all for coming in your best Halloween costumes!


Of course everyone who came also got their fill of candy. Enjoy the sweet treat!



JOMO JET and our amazing volunteers enjoy participating in these types of events with all of you! Please look forward to our next event and always check our website for more information.

Until then,
Happy Halloween!

JOMO JETのメンバー やボランティアは今回のイベントを参加者の皆さんと一緒に楽しんでいました!次の工作のイペントを楽しみにしていてください!イベントの案内は、JOMO JETのブログで確認してください。
