World Kids Colouring Day Competition – Friends from the Forest
Sat, 2 Jun | 1pm – 2.30pm | Glass Atrium, Level 2
STAEDTLER, a global and established leader in manufacturing writing instruments, initiated World Kids Colouring Day in 2008. Children all over the world are invited to colour for a good cause. With their little works of art, they support less-fortunate children and also stand a chance to win prizes. In Singapore, this year’s theme is “Release your creativity – Friends from the Forest”. STAEDTLER will make a donation towards the National Heritage Fund for each entry in the contest. The donation will go towards supporting children’s programmes at the National Museum of Singapore.
26 May to 24 Jun | 10am – 5.30pm | Front Lawn
