Looking for things to do with the kids in Singapore this summer? You're in luck. There are endless options on the sunny island nation to keep the kids happy and entertained over the summer break. So much so, in fact, that we can hardly fit them in one blog post!
We've gathered a few of the most exciting ones, though, to make things easier. Check out the list below for the best things to do with kids in Singapore, as well as events and activities new for summer 2019.
Gardens By the Bay
One of the biggest highlights, though, is the Supertree grove and OCBC Skyway. The giant supertrees are between 25 and 50 metres tall, and their canopies light up in the evening. If you're brave, take a walk with the kids along the skyway to get a closer look and take in incredible views of the bay.
Other special attractions include various wildlife shows, feeding experiences, behind-the-scenes tours and more. Have a look through the Singapore Zoo website for more info.
If you want to enjoy a trip to the island without splashing the cash, that's totally do-able. There are three beaches: Palawan, Siloso and Tanjong, where the kids can muck around in the sand and water and enjoy the sunshine. There's also a Nature Discovery centre with free entry, and the Fort Siloso Skywalk, where you can enjoy a tree-top trek.
While you're there, you can rent bikes and take a family cycle around the island. It's tiny, so you can definitely make it all the way around without too much effort! Or why not go on a kayak expedition through the mangroves, and get to know the local marine wildlife.
Enjoying all the island has to offer!
A must-see this summer is the Wonderland exhibition, which focuses on Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It's an immersive, interactive exhibition which is great for kids. At the entrance of the exhibition you are given a map to help you navigate through 'wonderland', including a Hallway of Doors, Pool of Tears, the Mad Hatter's Tea Party and more.
National Gallery Singapore
The National Gallery Singapore brings together modern visual art from Singapore and around South East Asia. The gallery has won awards for being kid-friendly, and includes a range of interactive features and activities so kids can engage with and learn more about the art on display. They offer audio tours specifically for kids, storytelling sessions, art workshops and more.
This year, the gallery will be hosting the Gallery Children's Biennale 2019: Embracing Wonder - an exhibition consisting of 11 creative, interactive artworks. Bring your kids along so they can touch, feel and play their way through a weird and wonderful creative world, and hopefully be inspired themselves to think outside the box.
