What will happen in their 1-hour workshop:

  1. Story-telling: Mr.Toffee and the giant red apple.
    Children will learn about our adventurous mascot cat, Mr.Toffee, who loves to explore the city by climbing on top of buildings.  One day he was on top of Swiss Bakery and looked across to find a giant red apple!  He tried using ropes, ladders and even building a bridge to get to the other side to break all of them before reaching the red apple.  Mr. Toffee remembers the children at Swiss Bakery to be very creative! So he asks the children for their help to think of a super fun and creative way to get to the giant red apple.
  2. Ideation: Children will sketch their ideas onto paper through a variety of dry mediums
  3. Communication: Children share their ideas and refine it.
  4. Planning: Children will take their refined idea and turn it into their new masterpiece and also learn the basics of painting with acrylic.
