Island kids treated to a balloon fiesta!

Rachel and the kidsRachel showing the kids how to master her craft.

In so many ways the children of Caye Caulker are truly blessed with their barefoot, free spirited life-style that is so charmed.  But once in a while we have to give thanks to the tourist/ passers by who wish to share their gifts  - be it their talent, their knowledge even their purse to benefit our children!

Yesterday was one of those days as Rachel Fournet-Fayard, travelling from Paris, France wished to entertain the kids with her creative and fun talent – balloon shaping!  Rachel met up with Adela at the Raggamuffin Tours office two days ago and together they hatched their plan for Adela to hold a kids party for her daughter Joannie the following day.

Rachel’s talent is truly beyond what any of us have ever imagined and the kids were amazed at what she created – from Octopus, horses, dogs, fairy wands and hats etc etc.  Rachel even allowed the kids to interact with her creative technique and witness how she was able to put together these works of art!

If you want to see more of what Rachel’s artwork – please have a look at her website  Thank Rachel for entertaining our kids all afternoon!!
