About 800 small hands and therefore no more or less than about 4,000 little fingers were in the air in the sports center in Dalhús in Grafarvogur yesterday when the photographer of Morgunblaðið looked in. There was a program in connection with the Reykjavík City Winter Festival, Light in the Dark. The festival started yesterday and will last until March 3.
The owners of the little hands are the oldest children of all kindergartens in Grafarvogur and the festival they attended at the sports center was called Light and Movement. To combine the two, the children walked from the kindergartens to the sports center or took a bus.
Upon arrival, they were all given a flashlight and no one but the Sports elf from Latibær received them in the hall with a smile on his face, and a smile on his face as only he can have. The Sports elf organized all kinds of games and exercises where the flashlights played a big role, as the hall was darkened. As always, when the Sports elf meets such a large group of children, he seized the opportunity and urged them to eat healthy and good food and do sports and outdoor activities.
The festival Light and Movement is in the spirit of the neighborhood project Gróski in Grafarvogur, of which all kindergartens are members. The kids who took part in the celebrations at the sports center could become movie stars because three cinematographers from Latibær accompanied the Sports elf and the festival was recorded on video which will be used to promote Icelandic methods of conveying a positive message abroad.
