INSA - India used ideas of the Koala and Bunny story to explain good and bad touch to kindergarden children in Bangalore. We used Teddy bears so that kids were focussed. It went very well and children learnt important tips on how to protect their bodies .

I wish we can get a sponsor to print the Koala and Bunny colouring books which would be one of the good follow up reinforcement activities.
 Thank you.
