We went LIVE at FaithActs!

Last December School Holidays, we had the opportunity to conduct our Fruit Detective programme for the children at FaithActs, a non-profit community care service for children with learning difficulties and youths-at-risk.

During this 3-hour workshop, the children learned about SENSES through the story, Fruit Detective, and many fun games and activities. To start, we introduced Braille and got them wondering how it is used by trying to code their emotions in Braille.

The children were then given the challenge to use their sense of 'touch', 'sound', 'smell' to guess mystery fruits found in Southeast Asia. After which, they got to make a fruit salad all by themselves. Many of them have not seen jambu (water apple), dragon fruit, mangosteen and passion fruit before but we were so proud of them for being so enthusiastic and brave to try them out!

After which, we went outdoors to practise 2 very important skills: to look closely and listen closely. They took close-up photos and sound recordings, and made them into a quiz for their friends to guess. We also collected different textures around by making crayon rubbings. The children imagined, designed and created an artwork of organic shapes cut from their own textured paper collection. Finally, we ended off with a show-and-tell of everyone sharing about their art. The art making process is truly meaningful when we share details or stories about our artworks!

Thank you FaithActs for giving us this opportunity. We had such an awesome time with this group of enthusiastic and creative learners!
