Summary/Abstract: Folk customs and festivals are an integral part of the culture of our people and pass their historical experience to the generations. They carry their symbolism, which makes each – even the children, a bearer and a continuator of folk traditions, a contributor that adds new images in enriching the folk art.Children’s participation in the Kuker (costumed men and women, performing traditional rituals to scare the evil away) Games is a unique experience. Children acquire knowledge and skills related to the content and meaning of the Kukeri custom – in acting, communicating and building social contacts, in observing rules and assuming responsibilities when performing the ritual. Thus are created lasting prerequisites for the development of their artistic abilities, their creative imagination, artistic intuition and all-round orientation in the world of the wonderful. Such participation also contributes to enriching their creative vision and understanding the art of folk customs and traditions.
