Exploring Local Food Heritage with Ang Ku Kueh Girl

It's our honour and privilege to be invited by Thumbs Up Little Junior, the pre-school publication of Lianhe Zaobao to conduct two sessions of Parent-Child workshop. which is open to K1 and K2 children who will pair up with one of their parents.

The session will combine story-telling, with a basic introduction to our local food heritage and hands-on paper-crafting. Stories will be told through paper craft puppets in a handmade theatre. The “Ang Ku Kueh Girl” mascot will also appear during the workshop. Parents are encouraged to introduce these local foods to their children after the session. Children are also encouraged to continue their own story-telling at home with their own paper puppets.  

 

《联合早报》属下学前刊物《小小拇指》邀请“红龟粿女孩与好友”,主持两场亲子工作坊。欢迎幼儿园一、二年级的儿童,连同一名家长参加。

工作坊将通过简单又生动的故事介绍本地的美食文化。此外,小朋友将有机会和家长一起制作纸偶。届时“红龟粿女孩”也将在工作坊亮相。工作坊希望鼓励家长在参加工作坊之后通过有趣的方式介绍充满本地色彩的食物给孩子们,也希望孩子学会用玩偶来继续创作并讲述自己的故事。

(这是一个60分钟的工作坊。每一组必须由一名五、六岁的孩童及一名家长组成。每场只限50组。)
