Create your own paper mask! - Kid friendly workshop
We had a fantastic morning, as a family, doing the mask making.
Initially I though this would be a simple kids activity to break up the day, but it is much more than that.
Its starts by entering through a small alley way off the street into the house of the traditional mask owner - the whole experience of staying in someones house/apartment for the morning was brilliant as you get to really feel the life of a local Hanoi person.
The activity itself was done by the whole family and was just fun - led by the last of the traditional mask makers in Hanoi. We loved it.
Throughout we had really interesting conversations with Thanh, our excellent hostess. It gave a great insight into Vietnam's past and future thinking.
Just a great 3 hours spent and we would highly recommend it for anyone to do, form Backpackers to families.
