The life-size puppets will tell the little viewers a new version of the well-known tales, and then the young theatregoers will be invited for the unique exhibition “In the World of Fairy Tales”, where they will see handmade puppets – rod puppets, life-size puppets, glove puppets and marionettes.

The children will tour around the old mill, which was depicted in the novel “And Quiet Flows the Don”, will see mill equipment of the early XX century, will learn about the features of the flour mill business, and then, in the open air, they will learn how Cossacks grew grain, what cultures they raised, what agricultural implements they used, and could take part in peeling grain and grinding it in the hand mill.

The teachers from the Young Technicians’ Station from Azov will train the children to send messages by shortwaves. The young constructors will make paper models of a plane. Passing through the “Bridge of Wish” to the opposite bank of the River Chir they will be able to make a rocket model and launch it. Here, there will be a demonstration on the water of a ride quality of radio-controlled ship models and a solar powered boat made by the young technicians from Azov.

The little children will get to the “Home Zoo”, where they will ride on ponies, meet with goats and rabbits, and will feed them.

The children will be able to show their talents of artists, designers and craftsmen. Different workshops will train them in weaving, pottery, pottery painting, ball modeling and face painting.

In the central square, an exhibition “The World through Children’s Eyes” will have a run. The visitors will see drawings and handicraft articles by young artists and masters of arts and crafts dedicated to the work of M.A.Sholokhov and the Don country.

The literary area “We are Reading Sholokhov” will sound fragments of the writer’s works performed by the winners of the creative contest “Our Sholokhov”.

The children will join a tour about the parish school, where the would-be Nobel Prize winner studied, will know what subjects little Cossacks were taught early in the XX century, what games they played, how they prepared for military service. Here, the children can try themselves in the skills of Cossack martial arts: throwing a lance and a knife, cutting rods, lassoing a horse and correct sitting down in the saddle.

For the first time the children holiday will include Cup competitions “Hope of May”, a mini-football tournament for young sportsmen. The holiday program in Stanitsa Karghinskaya will end with a gala concert.
