Still haven’t made your way to Playeum yet, mama? There’s no better time than now to take the kids!
Here at Sassy Mama, we’ve long been fans of Playeum: The Children’s Centre for Creativity, a Reggio Emilia-inspired museum space designed to encourage children to play. We loved their Hideaways: Creating with Nature exhibition and even held one of our Mama Meet Ups there, where mamas and little ones alike absolutely loved the morning filled with exploration!
If you haven’t taken the kiddos to the museum-cum-indoor-play centre, you’ll want to make a beeline for it soon. Playeum is known to change their exhibitions every 6 months, and after a good run with Hideaways, they’re down to the last two months of the exhibition. Filled with several installations that provide plenty of nature-inspired play, your littles will have their hands full!
Workshops are also a mainstay at the centre, with everything from making a microscope and magic wands to sound play. For a more immersive experience for the kiddos, think ahead for the September school holidays, mama! Holiday camps at Playeum provide a great opportunity for unlimited access to all of the interactive spaces at the centre while they enjoy hands-on workshops, develop their creative ideas and have fun! Plus point: snacks are also provided.
After a successful round of Budding Entomologist camps in June, Playeum is bringing back the love for entomology with the Hands-on Budding Entomologist camp happening 6 – 9 September. The 4-day camp will get kiddos acquainted with bugs (insects, spiders, worms, snails and more) living in the vicinity of the centre!
On top of exhibitions, installations, workshops and holiday camps, Playeum also holds frequent Family Fundraiser Events through workshops, all of which proceeds will go to community partners such as Family Service Centres (FSCs), Children’s Homes and Child Protection Services. What better way to teach little ones to contribute to the community than to let them discover it through play?
Skip the playdates and go straight to inviting your kiddo’s friends to Playeum for their birthday party! The centre is big on celebrating special days – whether birthdays or otherwise – and you can choose between the Basic Celebrations Package (includes explorations of the exhibition, tables and chairs provided, themed invitation cards and discount vouchers for each child at the party for their next visit) and Creative Workshop Package (includes everything in the Basic Celebrations Package with an additional creative workshop).
So take some time off this weekend and head to Playeum with the fam, mama! So many kiddos love it already, we’re sure yours will, too!
