the other countries in the region, etc
○ Other activities: Write your name or YCS in a different alphabet, learn how to greet
someone in a different language, match 10 words from another language to English
words, etc.
○ Stamp the children’s passport after they completed an SHORT activity (we have stamps for many countries and can make stickers for the ones we are missing.)
○ On your showcase table: Ideally there will be some finger-foods or treats on your table
for table visitors to have a sample of something (DUE TO COVID PRECAUTIONS PLEASE TO DO NOT PROVIDE COOKED FOOD AT YOUR INDIVIDUAL TABLE at this time.  A pre-purchased individually wrapped treat is ok though).
WORLD BUFFET
○ Bring a dish for the “Travel-around the World” buffet set up separately, where bigger
dishes can take their place on the world-journey.
○ Please, have individualized sample sizes, and stick to food that only requires a fork or spoon and does not require cutting.
° We will have paper-plates, napkins, forks and spoons.
CULTURAL TALENT
¤ Please consider volunteering for a cultural song, dance, poem, performance etc.  Please let us know if you need special stage arrangements to help.
