Have you been keeping your little ones at home with the Covid-19 virus outbreak? Weekend plans must have been scrapped and you are having them stay indoors as much as possible as a precaution.

As part of their efforts to curb the Covid-19 virus, all crew members of Pororo Park Singapore starts the day with temperature taking and frequent hand sanitisation.

Does your child need a creative outlet? Clay is a wondrous, tactile medium that your kids would love to explore. Your child will experiment a variety of hand building techniques and have fun squishing, squelching, pinching, rolling, poking, stretching and pounding the clay.
