Mystetskyi Arsenal welcomes anyone at their annual Christmas fair
Christmas trees, bright toys, books and comics in Ukrainian, indulgent treats – these are just some of the products which Ukrainians can buy as festive presents at the unique Christmas fair at Mysteskyi Arsenal in Kyiv.
The fair opens its doors to all visitors of any age, but it is children who experience the ultimate fun. While adults do shopping, kids can visit a separate fun area, ‘Arsenal of Ideas', which is specifically designed for young visitors, where they can play.
The artists of Mysteskyi Arsenal have developed games for children, which combine art, science, and innovation. The creative game, which was loved by kids most, is the one introduced by Ukrainian artist, Alena Naumenko. She has created a project for children using magnet tapes. The artist made little templates from them and covered them with bright paint. When young visitors play with them, the outcome looks genuinely artistic.
The event also included some of the performances by talented Ukrainian youth.
