Fun with Cupcakes and Clay

By Khor Hui Min

khorhuimin-Clay WorkshopThe Marine SIG of MNS Selangor Branch organised its first-ever Cupcake Decoration Contest & I Clay Workshop on Sunday, 29 March 2009, from 2 to 5pm. Two different activities in one day.

I was surprised to have a good turnout of 23 kids, ranging from 5 years old to 12 years old, with parents and guardians in tow. Imagine kiddies running up and down the stairs, chasing after each other, while waiting for the fun to begin. But all were well behaved when it was time to start the activities.

Since there were so many people, we decided to break up the kids into two groups – one in the conference room and another in the auditorium. The kids in the auditorium started on the cupcakes, while the kids in the auditorium started in the I Clay Workshop.

The theme for the day was “Marine Creatures”, and all the decorations for the cupcake deco contest was about the sea and the life forms therein, while in the I Clay workshop, the children had a fun time making octopuses.

Our heartfelt thanks to Amy Chai and her friends for conducting the I Clay Workshop and to I Clay Creations (www.iclay.kids.net.my) for sponsoring the 23 I Clay kits for each child. Our appreciation also goes out to Terri Chai, sister of Amy Chai, and her friends, as well as Allison Wong May Li, for taking time out to bake cupcakes and whip up colourful icing, as well as source for cute edible cupcake decorations of all kinds in line with the theme for the day.

And best of all, the cupcakes tasted good too.
