Virtual Bazaar Guide
Welcome to the Lotus Blossoms World Bazaar’s virtual resources! We are really excited to share these with you. At our in-person Bazaar, colorful flags burst from every corner and lines of tables are set up with activities from around the world. As you try your hand at a craft or listen to lively music from our performers, you are inspired by all you see and learn.
Our presenters have spent hours creating activity sheets to replicate some of what they do at the Bazaar. Without their time and commitment, we would not have these pages to share. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude for being our partners. With their help, we have done our best to emulate the special feeling of the Blossoms Bazaar through our virtual Bazaar resources that you can access below.
Here are some hints for navigating the virtual bazaar: When you access the home page, you will see the activities listed on “clouds” surrounding the globe. If you start at the bottom left with Introducing Ghana and move clockwise, the activities can be navigated in the same order as the order of sheets in your packets. Click on a cloud and it will open up to the name of the presenter, with a link to their activity sheet, in color. If they have a video, you will also see a link to their video there.
You can navigate back to the home page of the Bazaar in several ways:
Click the button that looks like a house on the right side of the page (hover your mouse on the right side of the screen to make the house appear).
On the track line that runs below (at the bottom of) the page, slide the circle all the way to the left.
If you have a touchpad, you can use it to zoom in or out on a particular activity, or home.
