Nathan and I visited the Kids Arts Village at the Esplanade Park yesterday, and the boy had a ball of a time getting tangled! In "Tangle", the children were given the opportunity to help create a visual art installation. Each of them were given a ball of stretchy string which they were supposed to tie / weave around poles. Nathan was pretty good at going over and under the strings that other kids had already woven, and did not need much help from me. Tangle happens at 4pm, 5pm and 6.30pm, and will run till Saturday, 2 June. Registrations are required. Just turn up at the booth near the installation itself, and you will be given an arm band which entitles you to participate in all the activities in the Kids Arts Village.
There were other craft activities for the kids to take part in. Nathan got to decorate a mask using highlighters, and we got to bring the mask into this dark room, where he saw it glow in the dark. He also made a crown using envelopes and string. He was really proud of the two items he made, and wore them all around Esplanade and all the way home.
If you have not visited the Kids Arts Village, it runs till Sat, 2 June. I say it is worth making a trip down. There are stage performances from 5.30 to 6.30pm as well. Most activities are outdoors though. So probably not a good idea if it is raining.
