Malta will open a realistic miniature town where children can learn through playing and exploring life in the world around them, according to a press release sent to Business Malta. The venue entitled Little Peeps Pop Up Town will be open from 22 October to 3 November in the Parish Hall at Kristu Rxoxt Church in Pembroke.
The mini-town will offer play booths resembling facilities used by adults every day, such as a supermarket, a medical centre, a police station, a café and diner, a picnic area and others. In addition, the venue will include a room for little learners, where children can express their imagination supported by educational and multi-sensorial toys.
“The concept of mini-towns for children’s play is hugely popular abroad but has never been done before in Malta. For 12 days only, children in Malta will soon be able to experience the fun, adventure and excitement of make-believe in this colourful town that is all theirs to safely explore and enjoy,” said Chiara George, creator of Little Peeps Pop Up Town.
The recommended age is from 18 months to seven years but the project also includes a small soft play area for younger children. Each child must attend with an adult, who will be able to join the café next to the town while the kids play.
Tickets are available for online purchase prior to the event.
