If your kiddos are in local school, they’ll be winding up classes on Friday for a mid-term break: did you check out our guide to the cool activities happening during the school holidays yet? In the meantime, here’s how to keep the rugrats busy this week…
1. Get your school choosing woes dealt with
This week is THE week that you get to stop procrastinating and start moving forward with a shortlist of the perfect international schools for your children. Whether you need help picking a preschool, a primary school, a high school or even a university, we’ve got over 30 schools and unis from Singapore, South East Asia and around the world in one place on one day, and you’re all invited. Meet principals and admission staff from the top schools you have on your radar, and bring your teens along to discuss the pathways available for the next part of their academic successes. Yep: it’s HoneyKids International School Fair with HSBC time this Saturday, 9am-3pm. See you there (and don’t forget to RSVP).
2. Bring the kids to the theatre
The new and fabulous SRT show kicks off on 13 March, and we can’t wait to catch it. Gretel and Hansel is a reimagining of the classic, and follows Gretel as her new brother arrives in the world and REALLY sends her life into a tailspin. Will she leave him in the forest to fend for himself, or will she discover that she really kinda likes him after all?
3. Stamp over to Singapore Philatelic Museum
The Singapore Philatelic Museum, one of the most kid-friendly museums in Singapore, is closing its doors for a refurb on 18 March and is likely to be shut until the end of 2020! Get your fill of truly lovely exhibits including ‘You’ve Got Mail: Seeing is Believing‘, the ‘Room of Rarities‘ and ‘The Little Prince: Behind the Story‘ before they all finish on the 17th.
4. Head to a carnival created by kids
Oh how we love Playeum: Children’s Centre for Creativity, and even more so this week with its KidsConnect carnival happening on 14-15 March. Hosted by young people for young people, expect a cool line-up of performances, storytelling, a market, roving buskers and activities for kids age three to 14 years. A specially designed interactive play world designed by kiddos? So much yes.
5. Break out the craft kit
If you have a tot who likes to touch things, squeeze things, poke things and scrunch things, then get busy whipping up these DIY sensory play ideas for a quiet afternoon or two of easy play. And the best thing of all? You’ll already have most of these items in your kitchen cupboards and around the home anyway.
