At Home Sweep Home’s very first carnival, visitors can expect retail options from home grown social enterprises. Think a DIY potpourri bar, handmade merchandise and more. Plus, you can also pop by the Habitat Village for more activities, such as “building” a life-size Habitat House, and VR fun! And, you can get crafty (for a good cause!) at a Children’s Art Workshop.
That’s not all! As part of Home Sweep Home 2018, Habitat Singapore is also teaming up with Playeum to organise Maker’s Experience, an up-cycling art workshop for the kids. Open to children aged four to 12 years old, your kids will have the opportunity to create their own unique crafts from upcycled materials such as plastic bottles and fabric.
