KidsSTOP™ Academy Activities Week!
KidsSTOP™ Academy is open for enrolment during the March holidays!
Brace yourselves for some theatrics, a little drama, and a whole lot of science when you start your KidsSTOP™ Academy journey.
Participate in workshops and programmes tagged with the KidsSTOP™ Academy logo to earn stickers or stamps. Collect 6 stickers to receive a LEAP (Learn, Explore and Play) Degree or earn 12 stamps to graduate with a PAL (Play And Learn) Degree.
From 19 to 23 March 2019, between 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm, there will be activities for kids to work their way to a highly sought after KidsSTOP Academy™ Degree.
One of the exciting activities include making a Karimba! If music gets your child grooving, this will definitely be up their alley. Not only will he or she get to make a take-home instrument from scratch, they will also learn more about musical pitches in the process of making.
Or they can create Magic Colour Bookmarks. A treat for the eyes, your child will study the properties of materials while making bookmarks with materials that allow light to pass through.
If your child is curious about how electricity works, he/ she would not want to miss out on the DIY LED Torch activity. Your child will learn how to put together a LED Torch while discovering the wonders of electricity.
At $5 per activity – or $12 for all three – your kids will have plenty of fun while participating in the KidsSTOP™ Academy activities during the March school holiday – and learn about Science too!
