Entertaining children can be hard especially in the school holidays when many friends have headed home for the break. Here are some hidden gems – some things to do that are guaranteed to cure those break-time blues and maybe save your sanity!
#1 Challenge Cubes
Older kids and younger children with parents are guaranteed to love spelunking in these artificial caves in Bukit Batok, negotiating tricky situations – and complete darkness! challengecubes.com
This new edutainment spot is perfect for young kids and totally worth the trip to Yishun. They’ll love getting to operate all sorts of earth-moving equipment from diggers to cranes. diggersite.weebly.com
Singapore is an island, so why not try something cool in the water? Stand-up paddle boarding is great fun (and exercise!) for the whole family. Kids should be good swimmers and younger kids should have a parent with them. supschool.com.sg
Did you know there are over 600 geocaches hidden in Singapore (and millions worldwide)? Hunting for a geocache is like taking your kids on the ultimate treasure hunt and teaching them cool technology while you’re at it. Just log on to start. geocaching.com
