This may be the first time in a few months that all children are in school! Local schools are back in business and kids in international schools are getting back into the swing of things after their big summer break. If you’ve got littlies in tow or are entertaining visitors, there are still loads of fun things to do this week. How about a visit to the shiny, new and improved Future World exhibit, a pony ride, a fun splash at a free water play area or a new outdoor play zone? Or you could go back to basics and jump on the bus for a novel tour of our wonderful island.
1. Back to Future World
Go on an interactive journey through nature, town, sanctuary, park and space, with ArtScience Museum’s revamped Future World exhibition. They’ve upgraded some of the displays plus you’ll find some new ones, including Impermanent Life which reflects the cycle of life and death through blooming and fading cherry blossoms. So pretty! If you’ve not visited Future World at ArtScience museum, it’s a must-do for the kiddos and is a great (cool) activity for visiting grandparents too.
2. Trot along to Gallop Stable
Got an animal lover in your household? The kids will adore going for a pony ride or feeding the horses and bunnies at Gallop Stable. Kids over three years can trot on over for pony rides Tuesday to Sunday in Pasir Ris, and on weekends at the Bukit Timah location. Bunny and horse feeding sessions happen at various times over the weekend at both locations. And if you’re game, you can even go on a horse ride at its Pasir Ris location!
3. Arrrggggh you ready for a pirate adventure?
Visit one of Singapore’s best free water play areas! Head over to Sentosa and cool down at the Palawan Pirate Ship water play area. Kids of all ages will love the water canons, sides and of course the giant pirate bucket. Entry is free, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Why not make a day of it and catch the cable car from Mount Faber – it’s a super fun way to get onto the island and the kids will love spotting Singapore landmarks along the way.
4. Rolling@TAG goes outdoor
Did you catch Rolling@TAG at The Artground with the kiddos before it finished? Well, no worries if you missed out: it’s back and it’s going to be outdoors at the Tanjong Pagar Centre until 30th November! While you’re there, indulge yourself and stop by the Craftsmen Fair, running from 10th-15th September. Over 20 stalls will be selling luxurious fashion wear, chic jewellery, home decorations and lots more. There’ll be sweet live performances too.
5. Go on a bus adventure
No need to shell out for the open-top bus, just jump on one of Singapore’s public buses with the kids and go on a sightseeing adventure! There are loads of great routes that will take you past some of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks, including Marina Bay Sands, Haw Par Villa, Singapore Art Museum and Orchard Road.
