 Creative Workshop for Children
at Little Penang Street Market


Creative workshop for children at Little Penang Street Market was organized on 29th November 2009, together with Christmas celebration for the year. The market was very busy on that day, all booths were taken by vendors.

The workshop was divided into two age groups: younger kids below 8 year olds were treated to a story telling by Alison Henderson. Later they proceed to build kampong houses made of sticks and play dough, based on the story they heard.

Older teenagers were given the opportunity to learn from Don Henderson, an accomplished author from Australia who writes stories for young adults. The workshop included some insight in publishing world and also an exercise for participants to write a fiction in a flash -- 50 words story based on a given character, a scenario and a verb.

Judging from the pictures below, everyone had a lot of fun on that day.
