Attend Bazaar In the Garden
Organised by NParks, August’s Bazaar in the Garden invites visitors to learn about the trees found in the Jurong Lake Gardens during the children’s storytelling session and more about gardening from the experts.
The Storytelling and craft section for kids happens at 9 am and explores the magical folktale called Niko and the Trees. There will also be crafting of Paper Trees out of recycled materials after the session. Slots are limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis. Click here to register!
Another fun activity is MOLLY, a pop-up mobile library for kids to enjoy a large collection of children’s books, along with services like book borrowing and returning. The latest edition – MOLLY® 3 – is equipped with new features such as a wheelchair lift, a magnetic whiteboard for activity sessions, and customised child-friendly book stations at a convenient height for young readers that allow children to borrow and return books by themselves!
