villa litta park workshop – christmas snap!

Today we held a Saturday workshop at the Villa Litta Park, in Affori, Milan. Snow fell on Milan yesterday so the park looked beautiful in the afternoon sunlight and we were able to do christmas activities inside the villa. Sofia, Marco, Matilda, Vittoria, Virginia, Annamaria and Valentina made christmas letters, read Dear Santa by Rod Campbell and played christmas snap with Fi fi Fairy, Sammy Snowman, Angelica Angel, Twinkle Tree, Eddie Elf, Robbie Robin and other seasonal friends!

If you want to learn more about snap and the history of playing cards then you can start with The World of Playing Cards and John Jaques & Son (established in 1795), best remembered for being the company that invented Happy Families, the game containing a series of “Grotesque Characters”.
