Art Garden @ Singapore Art Museum

Interactive Comtemporary Art for Children from 3 June 2011 to 30 August 2011. Bring the lil' ones there if you have not done so ! There is one huge colossal bunny, Walter, extending you its warmest welcome right at the entrance of the musuem.

We started visiting the Fruit Market first and created our paper banana ! You can keep it as a souvenir or exchange it for a real fruit.

Superhigh - Play with colours and shapes in this toddler's playroom installation, inspired by the magical, mystical qualities of the rainbow that reflec hope and happiness.

Mummy Dearest - In a fantasy candy-coloured world of giant dolls, complete with a wardrobe of clothes, shoes and an enormous three tiered cake. The children can help dress up the dolls and decorate a cake !

Go ! - Climb onto this giant installation and form a huge picture using colour discs after you have planned it out.

To be continued .......

An Ocean Tale - The Rainbow Fish

A simple story but full of fun and a morale behind it ! An Ocean tale - The Rainbow Fish !

Minus the 1/3 of screaming and screeching during the play and the not so good sound system, I think this play delivered the moral in the play well ! It's about how the rainbow fish shared its scales eventually and got itself many friends !

This has message has been successfully been conveyed to Xavier as each time, he doesn't want to share, I will ask him if he wants many friends like the rainbow fish or he would like to be alone with no friends. He will tell me "yes, I want friends like the rainbow fish. The rainbow fish shares ... " and on National Day itself, he willingly though still having a little reluctance, shared his favourite green car wih Edna !

How proud am I to see that my lil' friend here is learning how to share despite how much he likes the car !

Before this play, I brought him to watch "Rocky, the baby Panda"

and I was thinking if Esplanade Playtime is getting too childish for him as I find the plays pretty simple and silly at times. Probably next year, he shall graduate from Playtime and more musical theatres shall he be expose to !

Here's the lost frog who has also watched "Todd, the big green frog"

One of the very nice musical plays was "Under the Baobab Tree"

One of the plays that Xav got emotional and cried when the crocodile caught the baby ostrich ! He was shouting and crying "No ! No ! Dont catch the baby ostrich, don't bite the baby ostrich ! " He sort of empathised the characters.

The next Playtime coming up is "What a noisy Zoo " and we have purchased tickets for "Mickey's Music Festival" !

Pinnochio Holiday Workshop

During the June holidays, Xav went for his first drop off workshop at Act 3 !
Thought that the theme was pretty fun as they could learn to act out partial of the story lines of Pinnochio. It's really fun to go for classes with a group of friends !

Taken during one of the teabreaks.

The future stars rehearsing on the stage of their own !

Day 5: Finale

And they acted to be sleeping and this was the segment that Xav looks so real ! He was typically lying motionless and relax, no movement at all ! The director of the school, Ms Ruby, actually spotted him at this segment and told me that he did well here !

The kids played several roles. From a child, they became donkeys ! And this was when the donkeys were made to practise walking on the balacing rope.

They even transformed into sharkies !

Each student were presented a certificate of completion of the workshop @ the end of the performance. Good job kids and teachers ! They have staged up a fabulous performance !
One pic taken with Teacher Priya after the performance ! She's a really nice teacher !

And one with the staff of the school who talked to Xav every time he sees him ! haaaha ! Nice chap !

Looking forward to new workshops in december to fill the holidays !
