So!!! Last post before 2016 ends!
On the 17th of December 2016, Kidentreprenuers held a first of its kind in Lagos kiddie business fair for children between the ages of 5-13 and i must say it was well attended. I cannot share all the images from the event but, here are a few!
The purpose of the business fair was to promote kid entrepreneurship, and i must say i was surprised at the turn out of children with businesses.I’m not talking my parents run a business , and they made me the front person. No children who actually make things and we able to explain what they did.
First up Jemimah and Aderonke of Jay’s Bling(instagram handle @jaysbling). They made embellished journals and baseball hats.
6 year old Edefe of EE jewellers (@ee_jewelries) and some of her wares.Patiently handcrafted and made with love:)6 year old Zahra of Sugar Snap(@Sugarsnap)setting up her stand at the business fair.Simisola, 5 year old Chief baker of Simi’s BakeHouse.Two SG,they had a fresh fruits and juice stand, where the made to order juices for customers.4 years old Aderayo of Anna’s Mixes.It was a hot day so her Pink Lemonade,Chapman and Anna’s Refresher Mix were a blessing for sure!The creativity at this fair knew no bounds.The A-team!Oshaon and Osaro, their slogan “We don’t clean your house, we teach your children how to clean” catchy! (@a.teamclean)A and Y cookies and cards.Dawn and Dew Mojitos.Aviel of Aviel’s Twist, Raheed and Raqia of R&R little savers. they had the cutest piggy banks. Abdul salad and Jamal of Mirror Images..You can guess what they do!Art by MyaShe amused me with her money counting skills.One of the things the fair encouraged, was the children doing the exchange themselves; goods for cash.Mirror images were at the fair to do fun Portraits .
Treats by Tomisin, who insisted on taking photos with the other members of her “company”.Taste of Peridot!!!i exclaimed…like i know them personally. Actually i don’t, but in the midst of all the sweets and baked goods, this was the only proper food on site.Interesting fact, she made the food at the fair.One of the sponsors of the Fair Art+Word (@officialartword) had some of their pieces on sale.Tumise ,who was the official Kid Photographer of the business fair.The Little giants Gymnastics club.In summary….plenty buying and selling went on.
But it wasn’t just buying and selling.Frannie Asemota of the Mustard Seed , talked about Parenting an Enterprising Kid
and Omilola Oshikoya, Africa’s Premier Wealth Coach and the do It Afraid founder spoke on financial Literacy for kids was on hand to give a small talk on…..
