Visit a museum
Check out the best kid-friendly museums here. National Gallery Singapore has some fun free events on at the moment for families – including story-telling sessions and hands-on workshops – think creating collage portraits, experimenting with Chinese ink and clay and drawing with pastels.
FREE:Jacob Ballas – Newly reopened!
In case you missed it! Jacob Ballas is open and it is big and beautiful! We loved it so much we wrote a rap song about it. (Just kidding but we did take an awesome video so you can see for yourself). We love that there’s stuff for older kids now too from a flying fox to a treehouse in the trees and a canopy walk with a wobbly bridge with actual real life trolls under it (sort of). Plus there’s a bucket were kids can aim stones into (honestly our 9 year old tester said it was a highlight!) and a veggie farm plus old faves of a waterfountain play area, maze and slides too!
Circus! Science Under The Big Top
Wanna join the circus? You can at Science Centre with their Circus! Science Under The Big Top. This is where to head to see 20 interactive exhibits from circus tricks of juggling and balancing on a high wire to learning from contortionists how to get one’s body into very small spaces. There are other exhibits on too like Above & Beyond which explores aerospace innovation and reveals the science behind flight. Free for the permanent exhibitions, but entry fees to Science Centre apply.

Land of Giants – Singapore Zoo
Head over to the Singapore Zoo and step into the land of giants where 20 larger-than-life invertebrates like Net-Casting spiders will be towering above you. Yikes! There will be puppet shows, craft activities, meet and greets with real live insects (cockroach or stick insect – it changes each time but you’ll get up close and personal with them!) plus meet the mascot Dung Beetle (we have been warned to watch out for his ball of ..erm…poop!).
