Holiyay at Home with SuperHero Me
Superhero Me just started its first programme on Tuesday, 5 May and will continue to take in sign-ups throughout the week. Participants who are interested to join in SuperHero Me’s Holiyay at Home sessions for Week 1 can do so here.
The first fun activity that was held was a 30-min exercise session based on the Universe of Feelings. It followed the journey of a minimally-verbal boy who meets a new friend, Blob, and travels to space with him.
The programme is based on the beautiful and heart-warming story by Quek Hong Shin which hopes to spark greater understanding about children with special needs who communicate in ways other than words.
Another activity taking place during the inaugural week of the online inclusive arts series include a Mother’s Day Card Creation workshop on Wednesday, 6 May.
This art workshop series is centred around the theme of Empowerment and led by artist Danielle Tay who has created commissioned artworks for clients such as Facebook and MUJI. Together, children will work with templates shared by Superhero Me and have facilitated conversations.
The other activities to in the first week of Holiyay at Home include a 30-minute art storytelling and performance series. Children will work with activity sheets shared by Superhero Me and enjoy a story and performance of Bucky the Dinosaur.
You can expect more meaningful and engaging programmes in the weeks to come.
