DINOSAUR THEMED TERRARIUM & EXCAVATION WORKSHOP*

If the heat under the sun is getting to you, join in this workshop entirely sheltered in an air-conditioned container Glasshouse and learn to create your own little prehistoric world – Dinosaur Themed Terrarium! As much as this workshop is suitable for older kids, but our little one had fun taking step by step guides from the instructors from The Learning Lab.

At the end we got to bring home his proud artwork and the highlight was the kids get to be their own fossil digger and dug out their own fossil Dinosaur to place into the Terrarium as a keepsake. Do you know you need only water the plant every 3 months? How awesome it that!

Plenty of parents with kids were hived around the creative crafts booths creating crafts like Sandart Bookmark, Face Painting, Keychain Shrinking and Pipe Cleaner Sculptures, Sculpture Painting and Colouring, using the simplest of materials*.

SNACKS BOOTH

Among the snacks booth, we caught up with a Lady boss from Tatgui who was selling White & Dark Chocolate Ice Cream  – only using pure chocolates to create desserts that don’t add on to a high level of sugar content, and it was super creamy and delectable! We heard that 40% of the sale earnings during this Children Festival will be profit to charity and 60% of the sale earnings will be given to the kids helping out in this booth sales! So if you are there, do give them the support!
