Kids Daily Challenge – Thursday

 

VBS Home      Monday       Tuesday     Wednesday     Thursday     Friday


Walking is by far Haiti’s most common mode of transportation. Published stats show fewer than 0.4% of the population owns a car. Today, we’re encouraging our kids to walk somewhere they would normally drive to in a car.

Imagine walking home from the grocery store with all your purchases. In Haiti, most groceries are carried by hand, on the head, or by donkey or cart (see photos below).

Parents, please email us photos of your kids doing their daily challenges! Each day, we’ll show these photos on the screen as your kids arrive and depart Outreach Island. There are email links on every page of the Outreach Island Parent Portal.
