Singapore Design Week is well under way mama, but more than just adults can get in on the action!

This school holidays, you and the hubs can look forward to participating in all sorts of crafty goodness with the kids at the Design and Make Fair, mama! There are tons of free classes, tours and play groups to look out for through this weekend, and it’s all sure to stoke kiddos’ creativity!

Activities like Prototyping for Kids (Strawbees) use design in play-based education through a hands-on workshop, where kiddos aged 5 to 12 will be taught to build geometrical structures. They’ll not only learn the basic principles of constructing a stable structure, but also explore and understand complex concepts for future fun projects!

Your tech-savvy rugrats are gonna love this one, mama: bring along your smart phone and explore New Majestic Hotel and Wanderlust hotel while on-the-go at the Singapore Design Discovery Tour. Through a nifty app, you’ll discover secret web pages that reveal intimate stories of the hotels and find out so much more while touring places of design and architectural significance. Participants will also get a chance to win a staycation at the New Majestic Hotel or Wanderlust…weekend getaway, anyone?

Tour with the curator of MINT Museum of Toys and explore four thematic levels of this fascinating museum. It’s a great chance to reminisce about the toys of yesteryear and show your children all the little play things that made up your childhood! Decades of toy design and artwork are housed here, so you’ll get to understand more about how toys actually reflect the cultural period of the time.

If you plan on letting the kids have a ball of a time on their own, have your own fun and create your own products at the fair, mama! Many of the hands-on workshops (including soap- and leather-crafting, 3D-printing and even customised cake designing) are free, so it’s sure to be a fulfilling day spent.

The Design and Make Fair is on through this Sunday, 20 March, and runs from 11am to 8pm. Some workshops require advanced registration; check the website for details.
