Popped down with Ethan and Tina to Chinese Heritage Centre to check out Sunday Playday, a programme that is part of Explore Singapore! organised by the National Heritage Board, National Library Board and Media Development Authority. The event provided hands-on and light-hearted ways to learn about all things Chinese. Well, my son Ethan certainly enjoyed his time there and brought home a neat little souvenir to boot!
Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.
Busloads of seniors (sound familiar?) leaving CHC after a swell time discovering what makes one Chinese.

Some finished papyrus kraft artworks. Looks richly textured and colourful eh?
Kids being engaged for hours at something non-IT or Internet related. Amazing!

Tina giving little Ethan a hand to speed things up a little.
