La Fabrique Christmas Tech Camps
Have you got a tech-savvy tyke at home, mama? Perhaps they’re keen to learn a little more about technology and gain some hands-on experience? Well, La Fabrique is hosting an exciting camp that’ll give those ages four through to six the chance to experience the world of tech first-hand! During their three hour session, little ones will mix coding, tamper with robotics and electrics and learn heaps of strategies for solving an array of problems. They will also be encouraged to design a series of projects and communicating ideas that’ll broaden their skill sets and increase their confidence in the subject. The perfect New Year hobby!

Occasionally us mamas like to be a little bit fancy and cultured, especially between all the kids’ Peppa Pig-themed parties and washing spit-up off our coats. We’re on the count down to Christmas now so lets take a break from wrapping presents and wrestling advent calendars out of hands who want to open ‘just one more day’. After all, Christmas wouldn’t really be Christmas without a performance of The Nutcracker after all. If you have a little lady who loves the ballet or you’re just in need of some relaxing ‘me time’, be sure to grab a ticket for the most spell-binding and magical performance of the year that truly does capture the essence of the festive period. Champers please!

Where: Grand Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
