This past weekend, Shopee Indonesia opened our home to over 160 guests. About 53 families showed up, each bringing wide smiles and happy hearts.
Children and parents alike were treated to a wild day of food, fun and games. The face-painting, tote bag-painting and sand-painting stations were great hits amongst the artistic. Sporty fellas were greatly entertained by mini soccer and basketball. Babies didn’t miss out too – they had their own baby ball pool and even cooed through a comfy baby massage session!
Here’re some highlights from our very merry Shopee Indonesia Family Day 2018:
