This week we’re feeling very zen and rather balanced with the perfect mix of activities. We’re serving you up an artsy outing, a bit of play, doing our bit for the environment and a whole lot of fun. Here’s what’s on in Singapore for kids this week.
Good fun that is funny at The Cat in the Hat
We know we’re not the only ones who are impressed our kiddies can speak Mandarin. Take your Thing 1 (and Thing 2, if you’ve got one) to see The Cat in the Hat and they can enjoy a lively production of this Dr Seuss classic, entirely in Mandarin. Suitable for kids over two years and held at the KC Arts Centre, this is a fun and entertaining way to immerse your kids in Mandarin.
Get into the community spirit with a beach cleanup
This is the second time local community members have come together to help clean up plastic from beaches near East Coast Park. Bring the kids along (armed with hats, plenty of sunscreen, plastic bags, tongs and gloves) and join other families to remove rubbish from our east coast shoreline. The Little Hopes Beach Cleanup will meet at 9.30am near the Starbucks at Parkland Green on Tuesday 31st July.
Encourage imaginative play at Rolling @ TAG
We are so loving this – a play space at The Artground (Goodman Arts Centre) where kids under 12 are free to create their own versions of play. No rules and no boundaries! The brainchild of Japanese educator Daiya Aida, Rolling @ TAG is an immersive play space with slopes, curved surfaces, tunnels and interactive elements to encourage kids to find new ways to play. This event is is free and runs until 19th August, so don’t miss out!
Get down and boogie with the Super 24 dance competition
Have you got an aspiring Britney or Justin on your hands? If your kiddo loves to dance, why not take them along to see some of Singapore’s most talented secondary school dancers at the Secondary National Finals of Super 24. Performing 90-second routines, teams of 24 members, dancing within an 8×8 metre square are judged from all angles. The Tertiary National Finals are already sold out, so shimmy online and grab your tickets now.
Slide on over to Admiralty Park
Kids still on holidays? Take advantage of the mid-week lull and head to Admiralty Park for an awesome, sweaty, sliding adventure. One of our all-time fave parks in Singapore, Admiralty Park has something for all ages (except for mums…grab a takeaway coffee sans plastic en-route). We recently wrote up our tips for visiting this kiddy hotspot, just in case you want some pointers.
