Under the theme of handcrafted products and games, the kids will be responsible for designing unique products and games that make use of simple materials, coming up with their own business plans, and running their own stalls like a little entrepreneur.

Continue Travelling Around The Mills with ISATISSE
Back in April this year, The Mills worked hand in hand with local illustrator, Isabel Tong, on the “Travel Around The Mills with ISATISSE” programme. The illustrated character, Isatisse, accompanied visitors on a trip around iconic spots of the Mills as they explored the stories behind each spot. This August, visitors can take a deep dive and explore the roles played by the various iconic and highly-instagrammable elements, such as the sand buckets, The Park, the original staircase, NF5 Gate, CHAT (Centre for Heritage Arts and Textile), Golden Cup Metal Gate, Pak Tin Par Lane, and the glass bridge. Visitors can collect stamps for their maps at each spot as mementos of their journey through local textile history.
The Mills visitors who spend $500 or more (2 receipts at most on a single day) may redeem a FREE Travel Around The Mills With ISATISSE stationery pouch, while stocks last.
