Go Green at SAFRA

Being a hero may seem like all work and no fun but saving the Earth can be pretty fun as your little ones will find out as they Go Green with SAFRA’s green-friendly workshops and activities held in commemoration of Earth Hour.

Here’s what you can expect at the different clubhouses.

1. SAFRA Toa Payoh

Why buy toys when you can make them right at home? Play around with plastics and yarn to make puppets and recycle everyday materials to create toys.

Fancy a new coin pouch anyone? You’ll find that a transformed drink carton makes a handy coin pouch. In addition to learning functional ways to reuse, catch the Paper Monkey Theatre’s delightful little performance about loving nature at SAFRA Toa Payoh.
