The CDC and Alfred Hong Kong hosted the ‘Let’s Draw Together, Kids!’ campaign for children to have an afternoon full of drawing and fun!

Last Saturday (24 Aug), the Child Development Centre (CDC), in collaboration with Alfred Hong Kong – a smart locker company, hosted the ‘Let’s Draw Together, Kids!’ campaign! 10 CDC students participated in this meaningful event.

Before the participants started drawing, we organised an “ice-breaker” game to help them get to know each other. After this warm up activity, the children began to design and draw pictures based on the theme of “‘Home’ Kong (My Home, Hong Kong)”. We were delighted to see the children enjoying the drawing so much.

In recognition of their creativity and hard work, all participating children received certificates of appreciation from our Psychology Team Leader – Isabel Li. Isabel said “There are a lot of advantages in engaging children in the art-making process. Children learn by doing, feeling and experiencing. During an art activity, children learn to explore their work by using different mediums, including colours, shapes and materials. These activities help to stimulate and help children cultivate their abilities across different domains that are important to their development, for example, fine motor skills, problem solving skills and language skills.”

The CDC values every child’s uniqueness and is always seeking appropriate ways to facilitate learning for them. By participating in this meaningful campaign, we hope to celebrate children’s creativity and raise public awareness of the development of children with additional needs.

The incredible artwork will be showcased on one of the Alfred lockers in the near future. Remember to stay tuned on our website and social media for updates regarding the artwork’s display location!
