Posted by Kellie Teo on September 02, 2016

Out of ideas on family weekend plans and dread being stuck at home during your child's term break? Bring your kids’ boundless energy to these five locations for exciting and educational activities!  

1. Science Centre Singapore

There’s no better place to learn about Science than at the Science Centre Singapore! With more than 1,000 individual exhibits, the Science Centre provides interactive and hands-on activities that will keep you and your child entertained through the day.

From 3 to 11 September, the Science Centre is hosting Tinkerfest, a festival celebrating the joy of learning through play, exploration and experimentation!

2. Kidzania Singapore

Having difficulties explaining the different career paths to your child? Pay Kidzania Singapore a visit and let your child find out for him- or herself! 

Kidzania Singapore officially opened earlier this year at Sentosa Island! The interactive indoor theme park is designed to help your child learn through first-hand experience of different careers through realistic role play.

Suitable for children aged four to 17, the 81,000 square foot theme park is modelled after the real world,complete with buildings, streets, and even a functioning economy!

Don’t forget to enroll in The Learning Lab University to obtain a degree in Communication Studies, Business and Finance, or Biochemical Engineering!

With your degree, you will get to earn more KidZos – the official currency at KidZania!

3. Singapore Zoo's Kidzranger

Calling all animal lovers! Head on down to the Singapore Zoo to experience being a zookeeper for a day. What’s more, The Kidzranger Tour lets children aged five to twelve try their hand at grooming, feeding and mingling with their furry friends! Plus, they’ll even get their own Kidzranger vest and have access to restricted areas otherwise only open to the Singapore Zoo’s staff.

4. The Little Things

Founded by two friends, an ex-preschool educator and a passionate home cook, The Little Things introduces important life skills to children through cooking! With a kitchen-setting as their classroom, your child will whip up a feast while learning their signature “Self-Savvy” skills such as independence, numeracy, and initiative.

While there are a range of programmes for children, join in the fun during their parent-child sessions!

5. Singapore Art Museum

Does your child have a flair for the arts? Make a family trip to the Singapore Art Museum's Learning Gallery to see the ongoing exhibition, Once Upon This Island, which features a series of contemporary works by local artists.

There are also downloadable activity sheets for your child to complete as they make their way around the gallery!
