Keep busy this month with these awesome kids’ activities.
This month, we’re taking the kids to experience live music at the iconic Clockenflap music festival (free for kids under 12!) and shopping at the AWA Charity Bazaar. We’re getting some fresh air and exercise while supporting good causes with a charity fun run and encouraging budding scientists with a workshop at the new K11 Musea. Rounding it all out, we’re headed to the theatre to get into the Christmas spirit with a production of The Snowman!
