The proud parade on August 9 is a beautiful way to bring the nation together giving everyone a reason to rejoice the essence of being a Singaporean. The NDP is a themed celebration marked with colourful ceremonies and shows; It is far more than a traditional march past. The NDP also calls for special mention to the Goodie bags distributed on the occasions. Originally introduced in the year 1991, goodie bags continue to be a mandate containing small gifts from various sponsoring companies.


    The Parade of 2017 transpires the theme of #OneNationTogether and will be held at a floating platform on the Marina Bay. The call of this year’s NDP is to present a united Singapore despite the varied and vast trail of culture and religions thriving inside the country. The theme could be read in halves. The first half says ‘One Nation’ which is a call for unity and the second one says ‘Together’ which elaborates the significance of a united country in the times of adversity. The togetherness is a powerful tool which can restore goodness in the world.

  • How to use temporary tattoos in museums to generate curiosity amongst children in arts

    Creative use of temporary tattoos to get kids interested in arts music science and maths Use temporary tattoos at museums to get kids interested in arts

    Tattoos have been known to exist beside us since ages...only that their usage, types and the manifesting process has changed from time to time. Temporary tattoos came to a powerful posture in the 20th century with bubble gums offering them inside their packaging and that too free of cost. Kids endured it with all delight and eventually got crazy for it... I as a millennial is a living witness this! So, Tattoo for fun proposes quite a common way of indulgence for kids. Here let us not forget the fact that the children must definitely be engaged in some of the other learning processes.

    As all of us are aware that learning is not confined to any boundaries. It can come from almost any source. These days’ schools and teaching styles are inclined more towards practical ways of teaching and for this purpose excursion and visits to various educational places are a part of the curriculum. However, there are various educational places which do not have the privilege to be interesting. Places like amusement parks have the fun quotient for children but what can one say about industrial visits like a local dairy factory, museums or the famous garden. So, it is up to the guides and teachers to make these excursions happy and interesting ones. Temporary tattoos can be one beautiful way to engage children with not so interesting educational places. Distribution of temporary tattoos to children will encourage them to show interest in those places and eventually they would end up loving those places.

    Ace temporary tattoo designers Adam and Imke are two people who have positively garnered the idea of converting not so lucrative in educational places into attractive temporary tattoos for children. They even showcased this talent at the Rijks Award 2017, under the name Rijks Tattoos. The competition is based on the idea that you take some of the artworks from the museum and make something different with them. Temporary tattoos were Adam and Imke’s presentation under this competition. They converted the artworks into creatively designed temporary tattoos which were loved by the audience. This was one instance of how a boring museum visit of children could be transformed into an interesting one.

    Not only museums but also places like historical monuments, botanical gardens, and process industries can be made lucrative for children to learn these things using the temporary tattoo concept. Educational institutions must cleverly gear up on this concept to gauge the attention of the even the distractive kiddos out there.

    Gumtoo is highly obliged to designers Adam and Imke who shared their unique temporary design concept with us. We are inclined to being into a collaborative mood with educational institutions to provide more horizons to this concept.

    Brief introduction of the designers who are studying spatial design course in Helmond. Adam is the Guy with long hair and way too many plants in his apartment. His designs are meant to be simple, pretty and tell stories.
