There’s a whole bunch of National Day themed workshops that you can join in with your tots at no cost, from vinyl toy painting to sketching!

If you’re ready to unleash your inner Vincent Van Gogh, you can go for the Ang Ku Kueh & Kueh Lapis (both Singapore’s popular bites) Vinyl Toy Painting or doodle local icons like the famed Merlion at the Icons of Singapore Doodling Workshop.

Little ones can join in a sensory play activity where they’ll learn to create their very own National Day Puzzle with ice-cream sticks!

2. Go Crafting with Hands-on Workshops

If you’re more of a Donatello than you can try your hand at miniature sculpting at the Miniature Clay Sculpting Workshop. Join Malaysian clay artist Ling (TinyPinc Minatures) to create your very own miniature plate of colorful kuehs found in Nyonya cuisine!

You can also check out Crafter’s Studio’s interactive Heritage Kueh Soap Crafting Demonstrations. Simple soap bars get transformed (almost magically) into traditional kuehs that look so realistic you might be tempted to eat them (but please don’t)!

3. Satiate Your Inner Shopaholic at the Community Art Market
