Young children are the most uninhibited artists. They don’t worry about capturing the right proportions, using the “correct” colours or portraying their subjects realistically.
They just create – and in the process, have fun!
That was how the kids who participated in our Little Day Outing: Family Art Jamming, together with their adults, enjoyed their morning at MindChamps PreSchool @ Concorde Hotel (Orchard).
Besides fun and family bonding, the event also provided an opportunity for the families to show their love to less privileged children. Their artworks were to be sold and the proceeds donated to Singapore Children’s Society.

Before they started getting creative, the children warmed up at the preschool’s spacious gym with a fun NeuroMoovesTM session involving cross-lateral movements that help develop gross motor skills, coordination, balance and even musical intelligence!
After the physical workout, the kids were ready to flex their creative muscles at art jamming. Together with their adults, they decided on what to paint based on the theme of ‘love’.
Family, dinosaurs, flowers, abstract colours… the resulting interpretations of ‘love’ were many and varied.
It was great to see the children so enthusiastic about their artwork…
…and families enjoying their time together.
What a creative mess we made!
Everyone had fun! But beyond that, we hope that the little ones, having put in the effort to paint for charity, would understand that they can make a difference in the lives of others, even though they are young.
Touched by the heart of the families who took part in our Family Art Jamming, Little Day Out decided to purchase all the paintings made on the day of the event. The full amount has been donated to Singapore Children’s Society, accompanied by handmade cards made by some of the participating kids.
