Plan your menu
Think full-filling, not fancy. It could be the best egg fried rice you’ve mastered after 20 tries - as long as it nourishes your tummy and soul (appetizer, main or dessert). It’s totally up to you, so as long as you remember to include at least 2 of the major food groups: grain, vegetable/fruit, protein, dairy!
What’s a challenge without a twist? You will receive a ~mystery box~ ingredient on the morning of the challenge, which must be incorporated into your dish. Good luck!
Cook LIVE on Zoom
On Sunday, 20 December at 10am, join us online on Zoom for the challenge. Cook LIVE, alongside other fellow families cooking. Let's make it a (virtual) party.
Why your support matters.
Your donation towards this campaign supports the work of not one, but two charities.
Both Playeum and Centre for Fathering share an affinity in building families that are playful, bonded, resilient and empowered with ever-growing life skills.
Your donation will help:
Playeum to reach more children in the community through artful-play programmes that build resilience, nurture self-growth and the development of crucial life skills, and;
Centre for Fathering to empower more fathers to be better role models and an enduring inspiration to their children, as well as help eradicate fatherlessness in Singapore.
Using play and the arts as a tool, Playeum creates safe physical and psychological spaces, and opportunities that help children be seen, express themselves, celebrate individuality & creativity, and thrive in being the best version of themselves now and in their future.
Playeum works closely with community partners such as Family Service Centres (FSCs), Children Homes and as well as schools, through high-touch programmes that provide children with a platform to grow crucial life skills such as resilience, creativity, confidence, critical thinking, problem-solving, communication and more.
Playeum helps create more opportunities that level the playing field for all children, especially for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and children with disabilities.
About Centre for Fathering/DADs for Life
Centre for Fathering is a non-profit organisation founded in 2000 to promote active and involved fathering and address issues caused by fatherlessness in Singapore.
They aim to turn the hearts of children towards their fathers by empowering more fathers to be better role models and an enduring inspiration to their children. Since 2015, CFF has been the driving force behind Singapore’s nation-wide fathering movement – DADs for Life which seeks to inspire and mobilise fathers to become more involved with and a good influence to their children.
Under the DADs for Life umbrella are initiatives such as Dads@School, Back to School with Dad, Eat With Your Family Day and Celebrating Fathers – to encourage fathers to spend time with their families and create a culture that promotes active fathering.

Kitchen Movements x Playeum x Centre for Fathering
At the heart of this joint vision and mission between Kitchen Movements, Playeum & Centre for Fathering is a shared belief in the importance of building families and making room for creativity, and how it can be inculcated into everyday life - be it in the kitchen or in the way we raise families.
This campaign is a marriage of two important C's in life (Creativity + Cooking) and the building of life skills in the kitchen, where it is practical and important to nourish from young. Not just any nourishment, but the kind that stems from the most basic need of satisfying a hunger, and coupled with love, care, playfulness, using local produce and building the memory bank by bonding over making something together with and for the people who are important to you.
About Kitchen Movements
Kitchen Movements is a series of events curated by The Party Elves. Kitchen Movements was conceptualised as a series of events, born out of the vision to shine the spotlight on home cooks, offering them a platform to show off their talents in friendly competition, where the guests become the ‘judges’ for the evening. The events have always been about locally sourced, sustainable ingredients, cooked by local, homegrown, self-taught passionate cooks.
Couple that with The Party Elves' mission of re-introducing sensory and thoughtful play for all members of the family, we have a series of events that we hope will remind families of the joys in cooking and experimenting together in the family kitchen and around the dining table.
Lets Cook, Create and Communicate.
