Children may have seen Hong Kong from the 60s and 70s in newspapers or on the Internet, but they don’t know the real things, environment and simple feeling that were once unique to Hong Kong. Chinese New Year Fun – Discover Old Hong Kong special theme events at Noah's Ark Hong Kong will lead children through history and give people memories of old Hong Kong.
Art characterizing local sentiment often stirs a nostalgic note. The fun-filled street scenes of the 60s and 70s at Noah's Ark puzzle visitors with their concepts of space and time. Families can talk and relate stories of the old days while taking pictures and selfies to capture wonderful moments. There is a master clay sculptor welcoming children at the Little Miniature Art Workshop, teaching how to make miniature models of Hong Kong-style pastries – a real challenge to children’s hand-eye coordination. Artistic types can take part in Creative Ink-and-Wash Painting, producing unique art by blowing instead of painting with brushes. Noah’s Ark has also organized Smart and Fun Kid's Money Management to inspire children's sense of financial planning through different scenarios and interactive games, and they can design their own piggy banks. Junior master chefs who love cooking can try Cute and Sweet Animal-themed Treats, as panda-shaped dumplings will bring sweet Chinese New Year happiness to the whole family!
Special Chinese New Year events will be held from 14 February to 1 March 2015 (except 16-18 February).
