Come join us as we enter into the
Singapore Book of Records, by creating the Largest Diorama!
We will set up a life-sized box as our model, and create a dream home for our dear mascot, Kiko the Kangaroo.
Follow us as we embark on this storytelling journey to understand the natural habitat that animals live in!
WHAT IS A DIORAMA
diorama [dee-or-ra-ma] noun
A 3D model in a form of a box, that encompasses a wide range of arts and crafts.
It can include smaller artworks and crafts such as figurines, paper sculptures or even natural materials such as pebbles.
WHY A HABITAT
We wanted to use arts and crafts to not just create but also to learn something more in the process.
In light of the recent bushfires happening in Australia, the diorama can also be used as learning touchpoints about the disaster - the fires have consumed many parts of the wildlife lands and many animals lost their homes.
WHY WE NEED YOU
Much like rebuilding the homes of kangaroos, this project needs everyone's help. Children will learn to be team players as they work together on this diorama!
At designated work stations; kangaroos, trees, hills and rivers will be hand-crafted by yours truly. Let us come together to witness a dream habitat come to life, one craft at a time.
