Your family’s schedule for this weekend? If not (or if so, but if you have a free moment in the schedule), you can’t lose two trading Fairs of toys that will happen in two distinct points of the city of São Paulo.
The first of these happens today, Saturday from 10 to 1:00 pm in the EMEI Gabriel Prestes, located at Rua da Consolação, 1,012. This initiative is part of the turn education event that precedes the Virada Cultural and that promote interventions on Roosevelt Square and the surrounding schools and whose goal is to promote the opening of schools to the community and the integration of students with these communities, as well as the exploration of the possibilities that the neighborhood offers.
On Sunday, day 18, the toy Exchange happens during the SlowKids, free event which is part of the Cultural Turn and which will be held in the Brazilian House Museum.
According to WHOLEVEHICLES,the programming of SlowKids, which starts at 2:00 pm and continues till 7:00 pm, will feature, in addition to the toy Trade fair, with the presentation of the music in the family and the band Alana, and with activities such as storytelling, workshops and games. All the fun, children’s education and awareness.
Entry to both events is free and to participate in the Trade fair of Toys just take one or more toys in good condition.
These trade fairs of toys are interesting because Exchange toys can be even more fun for children who just walk into a store, grab one of the hundreds of choices of shelves and pass in the box. When exchanging an item by another, the child learns to appreciate what you already have, meet other kids and discovers a new value for your toys. To promote this initiative the Institute Alana * created the fair exchange of toys that already happens in various parts of the country for a long time.
