We were offered to setup a
stall at Sentosa Kidz Flea event. Kidz Flea is where ‘Playtrepreneurs’, aged between 7 and 12 and accompanied by an adult, will put on their business suit apron, set up their booths and learn the ropes of selling while having some good playtime on the island. For us, this event was a family thing.
Just weeks before the event, Ethan attended a crash course of being a Playtrepreneurs and was taught some of the skills in setting up his business and engaging customers.
Back home, mummy was busy working on the items that Ethan will be selling. She did some research and decided that we should sell customize bookmarks.
On the actual day itself, mummy proudly displayed all 130 bookmarks which she had done and they are ready for sale.
The children were quite shy when we asked them to start selling the items. We had to constantly encourage to do it and mummy brought them along and slowly, they were beginning to sell the items. It was a good experience for the children as they were given an opportunity to build their confidence and social skills. This event was extremely meaningful when we explained to the children that this event was actually part of a charity drive for the Hospice Care Association (HCA). Its one of way of teaching the children in giving back to the community.
In conclusion, this event was a resounding success for us! We will like thank our family and friends who supported us. Thank you.
