Happy hump day, mamas! We know you’re already up to speed with what’s on in Singapore thanks to our Events Calendar and For Your Diary, but every now and then there’s other breaking news that we want to share with you. Read on for some bite-size but delicious tidbits…
Family Fridays Launches at ArtScience Museum
Starting this Friday, 23 January, up to two kids under the age of 12 get FREE admission to the ArtScience Museum with every standard adult ticket purchased (tickets for kiddos will normally set you back $16 apiece, mamas!). Kid-friendly activities and programmes will also be on offer; kids can enjoy 2D and 3D puzzles exploring shapes, patterns, and flying machines as part of the current da Vinci exhibition, or receive complimentary discovery sheets focusing on specific artworks from the Prudential Singapore Eye exhibit. Family Fridays will take place every Friday; click here for more details.
Register for your free SG50 Baby Jubilee Gift
To commemorate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, every Singapore Citizen baby born in 2015 is entitled to receive a “small set of meaningful items from all Singaporeans”. The gift packs include some pretty sweet swag, including a diaper bag, baby sling, children’s books, baby clothes, and commemorative medallion proclaiming, “I’m a Golden Jubilee Baby, I Dream Big”. Make sure to register for your gift pack within two months of baby’s birth, mamas, as a lot of the items are designed for newborns. Check out SG50 Baby for more info.
Kidzania is coming to Singapore at last
No longer will you have to visit KL or Bangkok to experience this marvelously unique “kid-centric city” that combines role-play with real life. Last week KidZania confirmed plans to open on Sentosa in October 2015, and announced its Singapore industry partners that will sponsor activities and facilities in the mini-city. Kids will be able to try out being a food scientist at the Abbott Milk Innovation Lab, or can see what it’s like to DJ at Kiss92. They can even learn what it’s like to own a 711! In the meantime, local educators are invited to have their say in shaping the Singapore location’s activities through organised “school trips” and preview sessions. Get psyched, mamas, and check out www.kidzania.com for more!
