In conjunction with the Bunga Bunga Raya campaign for the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri, more than 50 participants from Putra Junior Club (PJC) and Autsome participated in a special hands-on activity called ‘Kiddies Batik Day’ at Sunway Putra Mall on May 22, 2019.
The event started with Batik Painting where children had an opportunity to experience a piece of Malaysian culture during the workshop. They were given pre-waxed batik pattern pieces and nifty little kits for them to paint. Afterwards, they took the piece home as souvenirs.
Next, was the Ceramic Painting conducted by Kraftangan Malaysia where children unleashed their creative spirit through painting. Towards the end of the event, both PJC and Autsome members were seen beaming with pride for making their own art pieces.
Phang Sau Lian, General Manager of Sunway Putra Mall said: “The core objective behind edutainment activities organised specially for PJC and Autsome members are to promote learning through exploration in an inclusive and comfortable environment. Being an Autism Friendly Mall in Malaysia, the mall aims to educate public, advocate acceptance and celebrate the Autism community through events, activities and more.”
