Things to do with the kids this week in Singapore: 15 July 2019

What's on for kids this week in Singapore? 25 March 2019
This week we're tucking into delicious food, playing a fun Pokémon game and hitting the best bookshops in town...

There’s plenty of cool goings-on happening across the length and breadth of our sunny isle this week to keep the little people entertained. Here are our top picks of what to do with the kids this week…

1. Be Prepared: The Lion King hits cinemas!

We loved the 1994 animated version for its catchy songs, cool characters and (wait for it…) Simba-lism, so we are beyond excited for the ‘mane’ event (groan)… the live-action version! In cinemas from Thursday, grab the tissues and get ready to (*pun alert*) feel the love tonight. And if you’re worried you won’t be able to find the time to go see it… Mufasa! (Sorry, couldn’t resist). 

2. Take your nippers to the snippers

Been avoiding taking your kids to the hairdressers? Don’t worry – we’ve rounded up the best salons for children to make the ordeal as stress-free as possible: think fun themed seats, squirm-diverting screens and awesome gadgets. We’ll have the little scallywags looking snip-shape in no time. 

3. Catch ’em all at Jewel

Kids crazy for Pokémon? Then they’ll love playing the new interactive Pokémon Explorer game at Jewel Changi Airport! After downloading the free Jewel mobile app, visit 10 stops around the airport and enjoy fun-filled challenges, such as helping Pikachu collect berries at Canopy Park to catching Magikarps at the Shiseido Forest Valley’s East Trail. Not only that, but you can catch your favourite Pokémon in a parade at the HSBC Rain Vortex every Saturday and Sunday in July at 2pm and 6pm.  

4. Book a date with the best children’s book stores

Littered With Books is one of our fave haunts for getting new reads for the kids.

Here at HoneyKids, we love nothing more than a storytime sesh with our kiddos. With the kids still on summer break, it’s the perfect time to stock up on some new and exciting reads and help inspire a lifelong love of reading in your mini-mes. Here are our favourite book stores for kids to put on your must-visit list. 

5. Celebrate Singapore as a foodie nation

Our little red dot is loved for being a melting pot of different cuisines, so what better time to celebrate the island’s food obsession than the annual Singapore Food Festival? Running until 28 July, food fanatics can enjoy more than 20 activities and events, with discounts to many if you book through Klook.
