We bumped into the owners of Our Craft Place at East Point Mall during a road show they were doing. The art and craft ideas they suggested to the girls were intelligently easy to do, and we were impressed by their understanding of the abilities children under the age of five have when it comes to glueing, pasting, and decorating. We decided to sign up for two sessions which we could use in the upcoming school holidays to entertain the kids.
On our first session, the instructor Justina first asked the two girls to choose a foam door knob each, and then pulled out boxes and tupperwares of stickers, buttons, paper decorations, glue and beads.
Before I knew it, the girls were busy choosing their favourite stickers, laying them out on the foam, as Justina briefed them on how best use their chosen tinklets to bring out the best in their design. On our second session, the girls decorated a foam photo frame. Each session lasted about 45 minutes. The kids were well-occupied which also meant that I had 45 minutes all to myself.
The owners, Justina and Kelvin have outlets at Siglap Center and East Point Mall, where they conduct craft and scrap booking classes for kids, youths, and adults, and sell all sorts of high quality craft material to satisfy your creative craft juices.
