PLAYtime! – Hello Ling

I have so many posts waiting to make their way from my mind to this blog that I’ve decided to blog about our most recent activity first! We caught Hello Ling at the Esplanade this morning and it was Adam’s very first play. I think he did quite well. There was no whining or crying and he didn’t attempt to leave halfway. He was occasionally distracted by the Hello Ling sticker on his shirt and the Hello Ling mask but he enjoyed the performance! PLAYtime! is recommended for kids 2-4 so I think it was just a wee bit simple for Anya but she had fun too.

I liked how the three actors were energetic, enthusiastic and genuine throughout the performance which I feel is important when acting for young children. The kids learnt about different concepts of light such as what makes a rainbow, what makes shadows, how light is needed for plants to grow, etc. There were different elements to catch the children’s attention and whenever Adam got distracted, I would be able to get him interested in the performance again by pointing out one of the actors making his/ her way through the audience or something being projected on the big screen.

The next PLAYtime! performance is Hello Adam from 3-9 Nov and we’re definitely catching that just based on its title!

    Hah, I’m in the same position re posts! Was this like Hello Paige? I found that one a bit chaotic. Will prob still go for this too because I like the interactivity of the Playtime series.
