We all know how most kids are – full of verve and prancing around whole day long. Sometimes it can get too boisterous, not to mention hot and sweaty. This year-end holiday, why not give your kids a great way to use their unbounding energy, albeit without a whole lot of physical exertion?
An inaugural two-day holiday programme hosted by United Square is set to keep your child engaged and entertained. Featuring indoor activities targeted at 9- to 12-year-olds, participants will get to exercise their minds, hands and body while they have fun trying new experiences.
Ignite Their Creativity with Art Jamming @ HiArt (#04-23)
Painting is a good way to let your child’s creative juices flow!

With each stroke of the paintbrush, they will be free to express their personal style as they work towards completing their masterpiece.

Give Their Motor Skills A Workout While Learning Chinese by Making A Moon Lantern @ Hua Language Centre (#03-25)
The lantern is often used as a symbol to represent Chinese culture. Ever wondered why? Let Hua Language Centre share with your child the cultural origins and folklores associated with the Chinese lantern. Of course, no Hua workshop is complete without games to test your child on the new vocabulary they have picked up through this experiential learning opportunity. As cherry on the cake, participants will make their own Moon Lantern so that they can bring it home as a souvenir to remember the workshop by.
Hua Language Centre is one of the pioneer Chinese enrichment centres in Singapore founded by Chinese language educators from MOE and NUS. With almost 30 years of experience, Hua has taught generations of children who are now sending their own children to Hua for Chinese classes! Armed with an understanding of brain science, child psychology and Chinese linguistics (and for older students, exam taking strategies), Hua has developed their own curriculum that makes learning Chinese effective and fun at the same time.
