“For many, it’s a big adventure. It`s fascinating for kids, they talk to each other and want to discuss carious topics. Someone really small gets carried away by the subjects, puts forward their ideas, creates their personal city farm and starts making plans right before our eyes. Others share experience that they have already acquired. Children are very energetic”, - shared her impressions Olga.
