The fun doesn’t stop for the kids on your Singapore trip. With a plethora of family-friendly activities available, the little ones will be entertained while learning on the go, as they explore the city with you.

Let there be fun for all ages, as you explore these interactive attractions with your kids; you might just learn some cool new facts too!

Museum-hopping Fun

Start your family’s learning journey at the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, where you’ll get to see animal, amphibian and plant specimens up close. The highlight of the visit: the three huge diplodocid sauropod dinosaur skeletons, which date from as far back as 150 million years ago!

Next up is the futuristic looking ArtScience Museum, which houses blockbuster exhibitions from all over the world. Along with the interactive exhibits, seasonal art workshops give kids a hands-on approach to exhibition visits.

Arty families should definitely check out the interactive artworks at National Gallery Singapore’s Keppel Centre for Art Education. Designed to encourage your kids’ natural curiosity and creativity, the colourful showcased works might just bring out the kid in you too.

Head to Playeum at Gillman Barracks for more fun with art. This art space features tubs of Lego bricks, craft materials and more kid-friendly tools for children to build all that they can dream of. The artist-led workshops and art jams mean that there’s always something new to play with each week.

Destination Nature

Exploring greenery in the city can be extremely fun for the whole family. Among the must-sees are the conservatories at Gardens by the Bay. At the Flower Dome, informative signboards will teach you and your kids about these plants and flowers from the Mediterranean regions and beyond. Over at the Cloud Forest, explore a misty conservatory filled with vegetation from the tropical highlands; its impressive 35-metre tall mountain is covered in lush vegetation from up to 2,000 metres above sea level.

Of course, any nature-themed tour in Singapore can’t do without the ever-popular Singapore Botanic Gardens. Perfect for the little ones, this UNESCO World Heritage site houses Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden, where kids can learn more about plants through their senses of touch and smell in the Sensory Garden.

HortPark at the Southern Ridges is another hidden gem for families. Sign up for a walking tour, try the gardening activities at the Lifestyle Corner or join the workshops conducted at this knowledge centre, situated in a tranquil park setting.

A city for kids

The edutainment options don’t stop there. Make your way to KidsSTOP at Science Centre Singapore, which consists of four interactive zones built to help your kids imagine, experience, discover and dream about the world around them.

Your little ones might just find their future calling at KidZania, slated to open in April 2016 at Sentosa island. This indoor theme park encourages kids to role play as would-be surgeons, journalists, athletes, deejays and other interesting occupations.

So pack your bags and get set for your family trip; these and more kid sized fun await!
