(+849) 0418.6939

The Vietnam Museum of Ethnology and a Vietnamese family guidance website will hold the 2011 Mid-autumn Festival for Hanoian children between September 10 and 12.

Participants in the festival will include children from Hanoi, child cancer patients, and orphans.

Many interesting and useful activities will be provided such as the chance to play folk games that will help children practise communication skills, improve their self-esteem and independence, and enhance their ability to explore new things. These games are also expected to help them avoid violent games and social evils.

Other activities in the festival will include making glutinous rice cakes, laying Mid-autumn dishes, painting, and making toy ships.
