      Do you have a set of values that you wish to inculcate in your children? Imparting values to children is helpful for them to have a positive moral base with which to make decisions later on in life. Through an interactive hands-on activity, parents will have an opportunity to work closely with their children and impart their family values to the little ones at appropriate teachable moments. The children will learn treasured family values through a child-directed play activity with their parents.

      Key areas covered:

      Parents will learn
      • creative ways to impart values and morals
      • how to be role models for their children
      • to use teachable moments in everyday life to instil values

      Children will learn
      • common virtues and social skills like honesty, respect, turn-taking and sharing through child-directed play
      • how to use the language of virtues

      Family Bonding
      • parents to discuss family values unique to their families with their children and reflect values in designs
      • parents to apply affirming statements on children for encouragement
      • families to problem solve and make decisions together for the design of the canvas pouches.
