Thai children are welcome at the Government House here on Saturday -- the National Children's Day --with Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra personally presenting a "children and faimilies TV station" as their gift.


The government, in cooperation with private agencies, has organised various activities at the Government House all the day to entertain the children.


The activities include music concerts, comedies and magic shows, drawing and painting, as well as singing and news announcing contests, Nano Bike rides, Science World Programme with UBC, IT games, pet fashion shows, demonstrations of food processing and an exhibition of Royal Projects.


As well, several services are provided to the children free of charge, namely "Milk For All", haircuts, dental and eye check ups, as well as free food and stationery.


There are hundreds of other activities, from opening the new Suvarnabhumi Airport and an air show, to special offers by department stores. Children with adults ride for free today on the Skytrain.


Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra opened his office to welcome all the children, including those from the country's three troubled southernmost provinces of Yala, Narathiwat and Pattani, and presents a ""children and faimilies TV station" as their gift.


The premier will also present prizes to outstanding youths from all parts of the country who have brought reputation to the nation, including those winning International Olympiads, and join the children's activities, scheduled to be opened by the premier at 10:00 a.m.


About two hours earlier, the prime minister is scheduled to preside over a ceremony to open this year's National Children's Day at the Royal Plaza, where children are also welcome to various music concerts and shows, as well as games and activities.
