Your checklist for a fun-filled week with the kiddies!
NEWSFLASH: We’ve got five more days left till Chinese New Year… (squ)eek! It’s time to eat all the pineapple tarts and lo hei like there’s no tomorrow. Not celebrating? Why not book an island getaway for the fam in anticipation of the long weekend ahead (although it’s best to do this way in advance) or explore all that the Little Red Dot has to offer? While you’re making plans, here’s our guide to help you keep the kids as busy as possible while you do all your prepping for the holiday ahead.
1. Fill up our easy peasy reader survey and score a sweet Lombok villa stay!
It might be a tad bit late to use this for this long weekend but there are a few coming up in April, May and July! Yep, that’s the best part about living in the tropics. It’s summer all year long so beach vacays, here we come! All you need to do is enter our reader survey for the chance to score a sweet getaway with the fam. We promise it’ll only take a few minutes of your time!
2. Go on a nature walk and explore Singapore by foot
Take it from us, the best way to explore Singapore and all its green spaces is via the PCN, or Park Connector Network. It takes you through some of the island’s best parks without having to be near a busy road for too long, if at all. If you’ve got a kid who loves to bike or scoot, you’ll need this guide in your idea arsenal.
3. Eat ALL the BURGERS
Guys, it was hard work but we did it. Yup, we’ve found the best kid-friendly burger joints in the city. And we aren’t talking about fast food either. We’re serious about our burgers so we know that not all burger joints are created equal. Here’s our list of our tried-and-tested best burgers in Singapore for the nommiest patties in town. You’re welcome.
4. Plan an eco-friendly birthday party
If you’re planning a birthday party, why not do Mother Earth a favour and go eco-friendly? As parents, it’s our mission to teach our kids to live each day like it’s Earth Day. And that means showing them how to be grateful for all the beautiful gifts Mother Earth has given us, appreciating them and not being wasteful. With that in mind, here are some tips on how to throw a sustainable, eco-friendly bash for kids.
5. Catch up on some reading
Fun fact: the best time to catch up on some reading is when the kids are napping or away at school – especially if you need peace and quiet to focus. If you’ve been wanting to up your reading game this year, check out our HoneyKids Book Club for monthly suggestions for cool reads. This month’s topic? How to deal with #mumlife – woot woot! Trust us, it feels great to know that, somewhere out there, a mum is also hiding from her kids when they’re being naughty.
So there you are – a guide to a fun-filled week. Put your hair in a top-knot, pull on those leggings and grab an iced latte. You’ve got this!
