Wall-E rises from the trash - WS #40


Wall-Es made from recycled items

Brought my nieces and nephews to Plaza Singapura for lunch before school reopens the next day. We saw groups of young children with their parents busy creating Wall-Es from recyclable items. We hung around to watch.

kids selecting from a range of recyclable materials

There were several boxes of different materials to choose from. Left on their own and with lots of imagination, the kids created adorable Wall-E from 'trash'. This shows that kids don't need expensive toys or online games to keep them interested and occupied.

Look! I did this!

This pretty little girl was engrossed in her craft, with her Dad sitting patiently next to her, occasionally giving out some suggestions which she brushed aside. haha....

Finally, she was done and it looked fabulous! *claps*

Mommy watching on as her kids create

We would love to let the kids participate but we were famished and their grandparents were looking forward to their weekly visits ........

    Earlier in the week, probably still not so many completed pieces. Considering the young ages of these computer-playing kids, I find them creative. Not bad lah... must encourage.

  4. Hi Haze,
    The kids were raring to create Wall-E from recycled materials. On the way home, we bought Yakult drinks, boxes of biscuits and a tray of eggs so that the kids could start on their project!

    Some of the Wall-Es made by the kids were cute. A company was promoting its paints and toys in the foyer, its activities attracted a huge crowd of parents and their kids.
