Check out the craft booths, that span around the Supertree Grove, which will attract not only the kids but also the adults to participate.

Gladys is making her Poké Ball based on the template we followed on the internet. There are other standard templates available as well, where you can sit down with your children and make your very own beads craft to bring back home.


Kinetic sand has been the latest craze in town lately. Unlike the ones you find on the beaches, these magic sand are easy to shape and mold into shapes. Even the adults find it amazingly interesting to play with.


3D printing pen is another latest innovative product where you can create 3D objects easily. I realised apart from children, it also attracted many teenagers and adults to join in to draw their own creation. Gladys is making a pair of glasses using the template provided.



What do you think about her new pair of bluish glasses?
