Kids Fun Club Thanksgiving

This November, Shanghai Family and Shanghai Times Square Kids Zone are teaming up to bring even more fun activities for your little ones. Not only is this a great opportunity to make new friends, but children will also be learning how to up-cycle old material, learn how to make personalized items, and giving back to those in need.

Upcycling t-shirts

Hand Painting

On Saturday, November 18th to Sunday, November 19th, old t-shirts will be given new life through printing! A teacher will be there to guide children on how to make their very own print designs that can be used on outdated t-shirts to come, whilst the one created during Kids Club will be turned into something completely unique! When finished, all the t-shirts will be collected and given to a supplier who will combine them together, making a quilt that will be donated to charity.

Handmade soap and cards

Handmade Soap

On Saturday, November 25th to Sunday, November 26th, every child will be given a card in which they can write a lovely Thanksgiving message. Afterwards, these will be sent to a professional who will imprint braille. Finally, they will be sent to Orbis, an organization dedicated to saving sight worldwide by focusing on the prevention and treatment of blindness. What's more, these will be accompanied by a bar of handmade soap too!

Clay Making

All of the materials needed for the acitivites will be provided on-site. However, if you have an old t-shirt that you would like to donate, please feel free to bring it along with you!
