Reading Time: 3 minutesIt’s every kid’s favourite time of the year once again! While everyone has been happily planning their summer activities, The Pulse has been hard at work putting together their annual Endless Summer event- Hong Kong’s largest summer carnival “Kid-trepreneur Market.” And it’s nearly here! Throughout July and August, you can join in on the fun.
The event occupies a sweeping 40,000ft2 space, and includes 4 dedicated zones for market, workshops, games and picnic. Boasting the first directed-by-kids startup market, a green picnic area and 30 amazing games and workshops, there is no better place for kids to unleash summer fun this year! With free shuttle service that takes you from Wanchai to The Pulse and back, the “Kid-trepreneur Market” will make this summer unforgettable and educational for 3 weekends starting July 24!
What is the “Kid-trepreneur Market”?
The market stalls will be run by kids aged 4 to 15. The “kid-trepreneurs” can make the call on everything from design and product to service, while cultivating a range of abilities like logical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills, teamwork, creativity, innovation through hands-on work and play. Visitors are also encouraged to bargain with the kid bosses so they can learn to negotiate with others, adjust social strategy and strengthen their understanding of mathematics.
Some of the awesome featured stalls include a vintage camera instant photography stall that provides a one-of-a-kind polaroid service to visitors and a tie-dying stall, where a 4-year old kid-trepreneur will share her knowledge and teach visitors how to create truly unique water patterns on water and print them out!
In addition, St. James’ Settlement’s eco-shopping platform Green Little will set up a stall to encourage children to bring items they no longer need for resale, to extend the lifespan of these items and find them new owners. The Hong Kong Really Really Free Market (HKRRFM) will also have a barter stall where visitors can donate old toys or stationery, and barter on the spot if something catches your eye.
Unleash Your Creativity At The Wonderful Funderful Workshops!
Don’t say you went to Hong Kong’s biggest summer market without getting your hands crafty! Our Wonderful Funderful Workshops are run by kids and adults, as well as little artists who will teach you how to express yourself through art.
Panda Banana has prepared a series of “Messy Play” activities that uses everyday objects with varying textures to teach kids how to explore and create with their 5 senses, helping to develop their senses and unlock more of their potential.
More than 20 Crazy Games in the Fun Zone!
The Fun Zone occupies two separate venues on L3 and on the rooftop of the shopping mall. Enjoy the various fun games, including one where artists transform old objects into new toys in creative ways. Highlights include:
Bubble Disco—dive into the fun bubble pool to stay and look your coolest
The Silence of the Chicken—Never trust the quiet chicken in a pool of a thousand screaming ones. Find it, and take care of it.
Super Awesome Janga— features gigantic toy blocks for the future architect to build their dream castle.
Gliding on Water— a game that puts tuition, hearing and trust to the test, kids enter the game blindfolded while their parents direct them to locate baby crabs. The one with the most crabs wins the game.
T-Rex’s Rampage— put on the T-Rex costume and walk to the other end of the beam as fast as possible;
Human Jetpack— With the push of their parents, kids in floatie compete in a thrilling race of speed to reach the designated goal;
The Tumbler’s Maze— a maze to for kids to (safely) get lost in and play a classic game of hide-and-seek
