Kicking off the annual frenzy of beijingkids events is our school fair whose title changes to the Beijing International School Expo (BISE) 2015 to be held at the Kerry Hotel Beijing on January 24-25 from 10am-4pm. We gave you a preview of the partial list of exhibitors who will congregating for families to get the chance to pose questions to admission teams and learn what each school can offer your child(ren). The next thing we want to share with is the play areas that will be available to keep the children occupied with fun activities as the adults soak up as much information as possible.
This time around, there are three kids areas to be set up each manned by different organizations. The kids area will be near the exhibitors booths in the Kerry Sports Centre. The good news is that all the areas are free but there will be a maximum number of admittance to the activities to let the kids get the most out of the whole experience. Here is a breakdown of each area:
Kids Area A
This is hosted by Ipony International Youth Cavaliers Academy for kids age 4-15 years old. The area can accommodate 10-20kids who can choose to either take 3D photos then print them, face painting, make flour dough ornaments of the horse themed kind, and making paper wreaths. Expect a lot of horsing around in this section.
Kids Area B
This area will be hosted by the Ivy Schools Group and Daystar Academy (they are under one mothership company) for kids age 2-12 years old. This area can accommodate 20-30 kids with the options of reading in an open space or taking part in the building of figurines using legos that will be lead by a Lego master and teachers. This will be a quite place for kids to take a breather and just learn or read something different.
Kids Area C
This is hosted by the UCCA Creative Studio for kids age 2-11 years old. The area can accommodate 10-12 kids who can choose to take part in various art-based activities such as creating a Zoetrope animation (kids 4-11 years) and recreate famous paintings using special paints provided that transforms to super-flat, gummy paintings that can be stuck on surfaces easily. Uniqueness will be the order of the day.
