Playeum, Asia’s first Children Centre for Creativity, seeks to inspire children to ask questions and figure out answers. We know they do this best when they have the time, space, and tools, to play.
In Playeum, you will not see token cartoony characters enticing kids to have fun. The Centre resembles a warehouse filled with everyday materials, teaching kids that they have everything they need to be creative. Playeum provides the impetus to create magic in their minds and with their hands. Play IS the story and the process. Play IS creativity. And Play SHOULD be for every child.
So, this Christmas, I wanted to contribute to Playeum’s Play-It-Forward program, where a $10 donation brings 1 child from our beneficiaries into the Centre, to engage in meaningful play.
I also invite you to join me in "Playeum Presents: Petrina’s 25 Days of Crazy Crafty Christmas Contributions!" - creating fun crafts and gifts with your children, and maybe educating them about how they can also #playitforward
