Do your little ones love sniffing out great bargains at flea markets? Well, here’s a chance for you and your mini shoppers to shop to their heart’s content (and give back to society) at a flea market run by kids!
This March holidays, a group of enterprising PLAY-trepreneurs aged between 7 to 12 years old will be putting up some great stuff for sale at the Sentosa KidZ Flea 2014. In case you didn’t know, the Sentosa KidZ Flea is a marketplace for PLAY-trepreneurs to sell anything from toys and books to handmade accessories. Some PLAY-trepreneurs may even choose to showcase their creativity by offering services such as manicures and face painting.
Who (or what) are PLAY-trepreneurs?
PLAY-trepreneurs are kids who are keen to learn the ropes of setting up their own ‘business’ by selling new and preloved items at the Sentosa KidZ Flea 2014. The unique term is derived from the words ‘play’ and ‘entrepreneur’ – as the budding entrepreneurs are in for some seriously fun playtime while running their mini businesses on Sentosa.
Prior to the event, the PLAY-trepreneurs will go through a 2-hour training session where they’ll learn the basics of managing a business: from finance management, product display and customer service to negotiation and costing.
Play-trepreneurs will get to put these skills to good use at the Sentosa KidZ Flea. Through the event, they will learn the value of money and earn their own cash by selling their goods. Part of the proceeds from the Sentosa KidZ Flea 2014 will go to the Hospice Care Association — this educates the PLAY-trepreneurs the importance of giving back to society.
Show your support to the PLAY-trepreneurs!
Purchase any 2 items at Sentosa KidZ Flea 2014 and have a go at the ‘Tikam Tikam’ game to win fantastic prizes such as attractions tickets, food and beverage vouchers, Sentosa merchandise and many more! Islanders will also get a FREE Sentosa Magic Towel.
What’s new this year?
Besides giving their best as a ‘business owner’, the PLAY-trepreneurs will also take on the role of ‘ambassadors’ to promote beach safety. Do keep your eyes peeled for the mascot, Buddy Cool as he shared beach safety tips through a fun and interactive session.
There’ll also be programmes to keep the whole family entertained during the Sentosa KidZ Flea! Spark your child’s curiosity with wacky science experiments infused with a touch of magic at the Professor Messy Science Show. Be entertained by Way Past Curfew and RJ Arroyo as they belt out hit tunes on the ukulele. Meet Mr Joe, our very own Sentosa KidZ Flea PLAY-trepreneur as he shares his business adventures in a zany ventriloquist act! Don’t miss the chance to get up close to our animal friends at Animal Encounters!
