|The Mills Kids Market|
After receiving great critical acclaim last year, parents have been longing for the return of The Mills Kids Market. Now their wish has come true, and on 27-28 August kids can once again be their own bosses. The Mills Kids Market will be once again designed by “ohmykids”, an expert in designingprograms for kids to shine and experience new adventures. Under the theme of handcrafted products and games, the kids will be responsible for designing unique products or games making use of simple materials, building their own plans, and running their own stalls like a little entrepreneur. Such experience does not only enhance their problem solving skills and communicate skills, but also enable them to share the unforgettable moments and achievements with those they love most.
