Kuala Lumpur Craft Com­plex

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - City weekends -

Arts and crafts ac­tiv­i­ties are pos­si­bly the eas­i­est way to keep kids oc­cu­pied for at least a cou­ple of hours and the best part is they get to take home their ef­forts. Batik is a won­der­ful Malaysian art form and great for kids be­cause it’s hard to mess up. Head to the Kuala Lumpur Craft Cen­tre in the city cen­tre for batik paint­ing ses­sions that even mum and dad can get in­volved in.

Head to the back of the com­plex where there’re sev­eral kam­pung- style huts, each with a dif­fer­ent ar­ti­san show­cas­ing their unique crafts in­clud­ing wood carv­ing and batik paint­ing. For a very rea­son­able fee, you get a pre­pared piece of fab­ric with a waxed de­sign so all your kids need to do is paint within the lines and hope­fully make some­thing wor­thy of hanging up. Adults can opt for more dif­fi­cult de­signs (it’s a good way to bond with the kids).

The com­plex also houses a show­room of typ­i­cal Malaysian crafts from the dif­fer­ent states and touristy knick-knacks. There’s also a space for the kids to run around or for the fam­ily to have a pic­nic when lit­tle tum­mies start grum­bling. 5 Jalan Con­lay, KL (03 2162 7459/www.kraftan­gan.gov.my).
