Colour My World is an arts workshop with a difference. Many schools tend to be uninspiring, with the emphasis on copying. But Colour My World is more about a philosophy than the actual painting. According to the director, Anna Tam, it is 'a place where children are encouraged to experiment and create'. The studio is at Room 108 Aberdeen Marina Tower, 8 Shum Wan Road, Aberdeen, 2580 5028. Elaine King Goody Toys in the IFC Mall near the Hong Kong Station has a number of the classic Scrabble board games available (there are at least eight versions on the market). The $249 price tag may seem high, but the durable board and wooden tiles will last. Also, check out Splash, a fast-paced game for children aged five and older ($118). Goody Toys also carries the original Monopoly game ($199) and a wooden set of Chinese checkers ($179). We live in a tiny flat and have no access to a large room or garden for our five-year-old son's birthday party. Do you have any ideas? Answer: Childz Play at the Repulse Bay Shopping Arcade has a huge indoor play area with fun climbing equipment, and they organise children's parties. For more information call 2812 0201.
