With Easter just around the corner, parents are no doubt looking for some fun things to do with the brood. Whether it’s a party (with egg hunts and loads of chocolate!), a trip to a trampoline park, holiday camps and more, there are lots of ideal activities around the island for the whole family to enjoy.
Visit a trampoline park
This Easter, head down town and have a jumping good time at BOUNCE Singapore. At this vibrant trampoline park, both kids and adults can take on a wide variety of trampoline zones and obstacle courses. From 15 March to 30 June, students can enjoy double the fun at a fraction of the price with Double Time: two hours’ entry for $25 (just $4 for the second hour). Keep a look out for the Easter Bunny as he makes his rounds, and get into the Easter mood!
Besides showing off your moves at Free-Jumping, the Big Bag and the High Performance Arena or challenging each other to a game of Dodgeball or basketball at Slam Dunk, you’ll also have access to X-Park, Asia’s first Ninja-Warrior-like obstacle course. Those who love a challenge will have a blast climbing, jumping and navigating the courses. Thrill-seekers won’t want to miss a visit to the “Leap of Faith” where participants leap off a raised platform to catch a grab bag.
More details! The promotion runs from 10am to 10pm, from Monday to Thursday (valid student ID required). The “Leap of Faith” is not included in the Double Time promotion (costs $5 per jump and $10 per three jumps).
How about a holiday camp?

Little ones with Mandarin foundations will be able to hone and practise their language skills, while beginners can get a start in a fun way. There are five fun themes from Monday to Friday: speech and drama, Chinese brush painting, rhythm and movement, traditional games and Kung Fu. And, for one day only (29 March), there’ll be an Easter Egg Extravaganza where campers will decorate Easter eggs and embark on an exciting Easter egg hunt.
