Fun to make you young again

Everyone who took part was given their little bag with a passport in it. Once we collected four stamps, we would receive a beautiful and handy travel kit. Each of the four zones – Just Relax, Go Explore, Be Active and Stay Curious – had its own activities, including chocolate decoration, street-dancing classes and a robot-making workshop. Being exposed to such an environment, I could not help but become a little kid myself!

Kick back and enjoy the show!

The Just Relax zone was full of laughter and energy. It had magic shows, a fun photo booth, and balloon twisting. People could watch the show while relaxing in big, comfy beanbag chairs. Some audience members even took part in the magic and dancing with the clown magician. The instant photo booth was very popular, as families could take photos with props and customise the backgrounds. People also loved the balloon-twisting corner, where they could get balloon-made accessories and decorations.

A very 'egg-citing' event

Our team tried out the chocolate egg workshop, which was an interesting blend of cooking and arts-and-crafts. We used textured chocolate to customise a large chocolate shell, which served as an egg-cellent platform for us to flex our creative muscles. This workshop, which represents the Stay Curious element of the MAX! programme, would be invaluable for children eager to express themselves in different, delicious ways.
