A Scavenger Hunt &  New Villagers!

Published: July 10, 2018

Yesterday was a full day as we said "Tervetuloa" to new villagers! In the morning, villagers had Suomikoulus, worked on crafts, played lentopallo and learned more Finnish through song time. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once our new villagers arrived, they got to visit the pankki, create a nametag, shop at the kioski and receive their passports. Villagers dived head-first into Suomikoulu to begin learning Finnish before the evening activity, Moomin Scavenger Hunt. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ending the day the right way, villagers and staff sat by the bonfire where they sang songs in Finnish and watched the sun set over the lake.
