The June holidays are coming up, that means Joey will have no school. That would also mean we need to think of activities to keep both my girls occupied. Staying in this little island of Singapura, it’s not always easy to plan where to go. But with some though and research, nothing is impossible.
Here are some survival guide for all parents:
Play & Learn
Miniature Golf @ Lilli Putt
Located at Play @ Big Splash, this is the perfect time to groom the next Tiger Woods or Yani Tseng.
Child under 12 ($12.80), Adult ($19.20), Family of 2 Adults & 2 Children ($57.80)
Golf through the 18 mini golf holes – all modelled after familiar Singapore landmarks like Changi Airport.
Skating @ SkateSports
Located @ East Coast Park Area F1 or Tampines St 82, this is a more strenuous exercise which includes inline skating, caster boarding, skateboarding, ice skating and skorpion skating.
Imagine inline skating together with your kids along East Coast Park, that will be my personal dream!
DIY Art Projects @ Impressions Art Studio
Located at Cluny Court (next to Serene Centre), the studio offers DIY art activities such as ceramic painting, batik, canvas painting and scrapbooking.
This is a perfect activity for bonding time with your children and also if its a rainy day. Or gather a minimum of 6 children to book their Party Packages.
Port of Lost Wonder
Located at the Palawan Beach, this is the ultimate pirate ship water playground, and also the first ever “form party” pool for children.
Weekdays ($8/child), Weekends ($15/child)
Located at the mouth of the Marina Channel, this is a huge area for kids and adults alike to have a time either at the water area or at the grass field for kite-flying.
Best of all, it’s FOC.
Jurong Bird Park
Located at the far far west, this is a must visit for the younger children. Besides the educational tour around the park, the best part is the interactive Lory Loft where over thousand of uncaged lories fly just near enough for you to feed it and take photos.
More than just the birds, there is also a huge water playground to keep the heat down and the fun up.
Adult ($18) and Child ($12)
Riding @ Singapore Polo Club
Located at Mount Pleasant Road, this has to be one of the more atas activity for your child or even for parents to relive a childhood dream.
Besides the fun, this is an activity that will establish their basic posture and balance.
Enjoy lunch at the beautiful Verandah Restaurant overlooking the polo field, they serves both local and western delights such as soup, fish & chips and lasagna.
Night Out @ JWT Kids Gym
This is totally COOL! A night out for the kids while the parents can have their own romantic getaway.
Located at UE Square, the kids gym provides a special theme event for kids from 3-9 years old. Basically, you provide the sleeping bag and kids, they provide the pizzas and fun. It’s going to be 4 non-stop hours of fun from 5-9pm for the children, which includes art and crafts, pizza party, movie and other activities.
Some of the themes coming up for the holidays – Occupations, Arabian Night, Asian Culture and Traditions.
Junior Chef @ Expat Kitchen
Have you heard about Australia’s Junior Chef? This is the Singaporean version (my way of seeing it).
Located at Little India, the cooking school offers a variety of classes, while mastering mixing, measuring, kneading and tasting.
Available on every Tuesday, for 9-13 years old, $55 per child.
Bring out that chef in your children, who knows, maybe this year’s thanksgiving you can just sit back and relax.
Do I need to say more for this category?
As long as its an overseas trip, its FUN for everyone including children.
For relaxation, go Bali.
For adventurous, go Darwin.
For cultural, go Ho Chi Minh City.
For shopping, go Bangkok.
