Things to do with the kids during the Easter school holidays in Singapore
1. Challenge the fam to the Forest Adventure obstacle course
Have you ever been to Forest Adventure? We reckon this tree-top obstacle course is a great idea for some family bonding time with kids of all ages – littlies and teens included! There are different age-appropriate ropes courses – you’ve got the Kids Course for littlies aged 5 to 9 (min. height 1.1m), the Junior Course as a transition for those looking for a bit more of a challenge (min. height 1.35m), and the Grand Course, which is plenty challenging for kids, teens and adults (min. height 1.5m)! We also love Forest Adventure’s beautiful outdoor location in serene Bedok Reservoir Park right next to the water which you’ll fly over with the 300m zipline as part of the Junior Course green rope course – a huge highlight!
Forest Adventure, Bedok Reservoir Park, Singapore 479244, www.forestadventure.com.sg
2. Go rock climbing!
Need some rainy day activities for kids? We love rock climbing – it’s great physical exercise for kids, helps teach problem-solving to figure out strategies to scale the different walls and it’s just fun! T-Hall at Crawford Lane has to be one of our all-time favourite rock climbing spots in Singapore. There is a fun themed rock climbing space for kids where they can climb independently once they learn how to use the auto belay equipment (this is taught in the safety briefing). Kids as young as 4yrs can rock climb here (there’s a minimum weight of 15kg).
