Western fairy tales are popular amongst children, but what about Asian folktales? How can we get children interested in folktales related to Asian culture & history? This is a hands-on workshop where participants learn games, songs and activities that will complement the oral telling of Asian folktales. Participants can look forward to singing and playing their way through the workshop. This workshop is suitable for those who work with children aged 5-8 years old.
