Octoburst! ParenTalk - Take a Walk with Me

[Media Invite]

In conjunction with Children's Day, Esplanade is organising Octoburst! from 4th to 6th October 2013. We were privileged to be invited by Sarah of The Playful Parents for a preview of "Take a Walk with Me", which will be conducted on 5th October 2013.

With a creative walking stick, a small luggage and lots of passion, Sarah brought us on an interactive tour around Esplanade. At various spots, Sarah engaged us with fun-filled activities on history, art and life.

What would you do when you see an interesting sculpture with your children? Make them pose nicely in front of the sculpture and take photo? (My confession: That's what I used to do!) Do you know how you can engage your little ones in a conversation on how sculptures can communicate ideas, thoughts and feelings?

What would you tell your children when you see these? Or do you say anything to them about these?

Why were Pei Pei and Hao Hao so attentive?

It was because they were captivated by the stories of old Singapore through storigami! Do you know what storigami is?

What can you do with spices?

Do you know how to make wonders with a piece of coloured paper?

Do take a walk with Sarah to find out more!

This was an enjoyable experience for us! I like this programme because it is very interactive, the children were asked questions and were allowed to share their thoughts openly. Most importantly, this provides quality bonding time for me and my children through meaningful and educational activities.

That was not the end of the bonding time, see what we brought home! An activity kit full of interesting ideas so that we can continue the art experience!

In Sarah's words, "As long as we are willing to slow down and observe our surroundings, there is always something interesting to discover and to discuss with our children." I totally agree! How about you?
