One of our workshop activities was to colour a whole piece of paper with colourful wax crayons, cover it with black paint, and scratch off the paint with a toothpick once dry. This was an exciting activity, as well as a deeply symbolic one. It showed us that, despite having to live in the dark of their houses, XP children have a colourful personality.
Playing outside in the nature is a rare pleasure for children affected by Xeroderma Pigmentosum, who can only freely do so after sunset. Yet, many drew trees, flowers, and butterflies. This is certainly something that flourishes in their dreams and hopes.
