It was a frenzy of face painting in the BEA library all afternoon! The BEA kids got to have their faces painted by our very-talented librarian, Sreynet, and school assistant, Chieu, as well a a few of our own students who volunteered to help out with our festivities. It was a first for me to do anything with face painting, and I had to watch quite a few videos so that I could train the staff before the start of our event, but I couldn't have asked for a better Halloween for the students. It was the very first time for all of them to celebrate one of my all-time favorite holidays! Many of the kids even went home with their faces painted to show their family and neighbors!
