Hanoi children to experience traditional mid-autumn festival

Children will have a chance to enjoy the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival atmosphere with various eye-catching activities at the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum in Hanoi on September 8.

The programme is expected to create a valuable and interesting playground for children aged from five to 15 years old on the occasion of Mid-Autumn Festival, Nhan dan reported.

At the programme, children and their parents will join the folk game ‘blindfolded to beat drum’, decorating traditional paper masks and making gift bags through monoprint techniques.

With crafted papers, canvas, paintbrushes and paints, children can spark their creativity and show their aesthetics and aptitude under the instruction of many artists and artisans.

In addition, children participating in the programme will contribute to helping protect the environment through the use of environmentally friendly materials.

Held on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, the Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important and meaningful traditional festivals in Vietnam. This year, the festival falls on September 13.
