Playing Platypus Holiday Camps
If the kids are driving you nuts by flip-flopping about their future careers after learning every word required of them from the occupation vocabulary worksheet, we’ve got just the thing for your frazzled nerves. The workshops at Playing Platypus – pulling double (maybe even triple) duty this holiday season – are perfect for the munchkins (aged 3-10) who want to explore different occupations.
Take a load off your mind this holiday – the brilliant young masterminds will be kept engaged by imaginative storylines, constructive role-play, and loads of active hands-on experience with the folks at Playing Platypus. Bonus? The generous teacher-student ratio and nurturing environment will also help the kids gain the confidence essential to discovering their sense of self.
We guarantee the littlies will be awed by the world of amazing animation in the Little Animators workshop. By far the most popular workshop (we attribute this to the duo of cute critters, Morsey and Mop who are quite a hit in the international film festival circuit!), this camp is split into the basic and advanced levels. After getting the hang of simple stop motion in the basics of animation, claymation adventure awaits in the advanced level, where they’ll get to create new friends for Morsey and Mop.
So who hasn’t dreamt of becoming a movie star? If the little ones like being the centre of attention, show them all the hard work that lies behind the glitz and glamour at the Little MovieStars workshop, which involves scripting, acting, filming, and even voiceovers. Kids who love storytelling will get to try their hand at their favourite activity with Little Puppeteers – they get to build up their literary skills, conversation skills, and create their own puppets!
Are the moppets science whizzes obsessed with all sorts of hardware? Sign them up for Little Racers, where they will design, build, race and take home their own unique electric car. We assure you they will ‘vroom’ ahead of other kids in the next school year, with the fundamentals of electricity they’ll pick up. If the munchkins have dreams as tall as skyscrapers, book a date with Little Architects – future civil engineers and architects will bring their own buildings to life (with some, ick, math along the way).
To drum up the hype for Christmas, check the kids into their new Little Elves camp, which transports them to Santa’s workshop in the North Pole to explore how their favourite things (yes toys, not iPads) are made.
