Workshop: Museum Toddlers - Mozart: A child prodigy

Musuem Toddlers - Mozart: A Child Prodigy
co-developed with Toybox Edu-tainment
Cost: $25 per pair of parent + toddler
Includes entry to the Exhibition - Mozart: A child Prodigy ($15)
The workshop started with free play or rather, it's free-play during the waiting time.
The children then gathered around on mats for some action songs. though they're the usual ones like Mr Sun, Insy Weensy, etc, under the magic of Reuben and Mark, the songs became super lively and fun.
It was all fun until...
Uncle Reuben put on the wig, dressing up like Mozart.
I didn't like the wig at all. I'm scared of it and asked Mummy to move me to the back.

Unlce Reuben showing us how to make the paper wig.

I didn't want to wear that either.

After making the paper wig in a rush, we were hurried off to the exhibition.

Mummy's Review:

Was rather disappointed with the workshop.

was expecting more connection to Mozart and his music. but there was none unless you consider "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" his work. but really, Mozart is not the original composer of this melody. He just wrote twelve variations for piano on the melody (Variations on "Ah vous dirai-je, Maman").

12 Variattionen C-dur KV265 uber Ah, vous dirai-je, Maman - Clara Haskell

Nonetheless, Hann enjoyed the action songs and Reuben gave very interesting commentaries to the exhibits, though Hann didn't appreciate (mostly because of the wig Reuben was wearing).

btw, wanta STOMP this father on the extreme right of the last picture. His son (the spiky hair in the picture) pushed a ball into Hann's face and the father didn't even say sorry. I almost wanteda box the boy.

realises your mummy really loves to bring you to museum.

I thought all those programs are for older children so I never sign dash up.

No age limit har?

haha. only for this Children's Season lah. otherwise, think there won't be much for kids.

the workshops are for toddlers.

I've signed Hann up for other one on photography.

the Exhibition has no age limit but they mentioned that it's recommended for 6 to 12 years old.
