Creativity is a fundamental 21st century skill. It is one of the important skills and must be highly prioritized as a response to current changes and to prepare children for their future. This year, Harbour City has specially launched a wide variety of creative activities, aimed at creating a fertile environment in which kids’ creativity will take root, grow and flourish.
In March, Harbour City launched hcKids “Swing Along” Design Competition, inviting kids across the city to showcase their incessant and ever-growing creativity by drawing out their unique swing. In September, the mall set up a Colouring Experience Zone for kids to release their creative energy. In October, the mall invited Japanese children’s book artist Mr. Tomonori Taniguchi to create a series of fun, sensational story-themed adventures, such as “Create Your Own Story” worksheets, to motivate and unleash kids’ story writing creativity. Also, the mall joined hands with a team of coffee experts, to organize a series of coffee-themed workshops, such as make latte art with hot chocolate for kids. What’s more, Harbour City is now recruiting kids to record their own Christmas music performance and become “Christmas Club” members, to show their musical talent (Details).
