Things to do with the kids this week in Singapore: 19 August 2019

Welcome to the start of a fantastic week, folks! Read on for our rundown of the best and most fun things to do with your littlies over the next few days.

It’s just another manic Monday, sang The Bangles. Well, they wouldn’t have been all doom and gloom if they’d read our handy guide on what to do with kids in Singapore this week! There’s plenty happening to put a big ol’ smile on your dial, including gearing up for an awesome HoneyKids shopping event to take the kids along to (be sure to book your spots now!) and a spot of art appreciation. Have a good one, peeps!

2. Go birdwatching… at VivoCity

If you’ve got a wannabe ornithologist at home who’s a bit of bird brain, then wing it down to Singapore Birds on the Brink – Our Threatened Birds in Pictures. The specially curated photo exhibition, taking place at VivoCity until 23 August, showcase pretty impressive images of birds on the brink of extinction here in Singapore.
Vivocity, Southeast Boulevard, Level 1 (near The Queen & Mangosteen), 1 Harbourfront Walk, Singapore 098585

3. Suss out one of Singapore’s best bakeries

There’s something about a sarnie made with fresh, crusty bread… you can’t beat it! If you’re hankering for a slice of the action or want to spruce up the kids’ lunchbox offerings, then you knead (ha) to know about the bakeries offering the best fresh bread, bagels and baked goods in Singapore

4. Spend a day at Robertson Quay

Home to some of Singapore’s best kid-friendly cafes, loads of scooter-friendly paths and some fabulous indoor play centres, Robertson Quay is the ultimate family destination. Check out our guide to Robertson Quay’s shopping, eateries and things to do and pencil a date in your diary to discover this ‘hood, pronto. 

5. Enjoy a teh break with the kids 

While we love a latte from our fave coffee joints (and grabbing one of the best babyccinos in Singapore for the little people), there’s still something about keeping things local. Grab the sproglets and go pick up a kopi or teh from your nearest kopitiam with our guide of how to order tea and coffee like a local. And, if they play their cards right (and you can handle the sugar rush), the little ones might just earn themselves a Milo Godzilla…
