As we approach yet another big holiday in June, it’s time to get those post-exam tingles warmed up. Awaiting the season of fun and games, here are some activities for kids this May you can look forward to as a family!
1. Star Wars Day 2022 at Suntec City
For the Star Wars fanatics, it’s time to go crazy and let out your inner Jedi. This is for sure something you’d not want to miss. From 4 to 16 May, Suntec City will be hosting a series of activities for kids (and perhaps even yourselves)!
From characters patrol and lightsaber performances to a kids fashion parade and LEGO display, you can take a peek at the program list here.
2. Get Splashing at a New Water Playground
Recently launched in April, the new Play @ Heights Park located at Toa Payoh features many adventurous activities for kids. Those living around the area will be pleased to know the plethora of facilities available here – water play zones, sandpits, ziplines and trampolines. Almost like a mini West Coast Park!
3. Check out the Buzzing Bazaars and Pasar Malams
Thank heavens for the lift of restrictions! With the return of DORSCON Orange, we’re back in the era of old school nostalgia. From the reputable Geylang Serai Bazaar to neighbourhood Pasar Malams around Punggol and Pasir Ris, it’s time to bring the past back for your kids.
Regardless of which region you stay in, the bustle is coming back to life – check out this list to find out where you can catch one of these. (Psst… Uncle Ringo might even be on the list of activities for kids!)
4. Jurassic World Dining
Happening every Sunday from May to August in Universal Studios, the Jurassic World Dining experience is surely an activity for kids who love dinosaurs.
Priced at $248 per adult and $188 per child, each ticket not only admits you into USS rides and express passes, it also gets you a 4-course menu which includes BBQ pork ribs and beef skewers. Much like the carnivorous appetite of the T-Rex’es and Velociraptors you’ll get upclose with during the meal!
5. Fire Station Open House
Seems like it is part of every Singaporean’s childhood to watch our friendly firemen demonstrate their courageous work. With the resumption of Fire Station Open Houses, this (free) activity for kids will leave them feeling awestruck.
There will be guided tours featuring the emergency firefighting trucks, a demonstration of the firemen putting on their protective gear, and even witnessing how the gigantic water sprays in action!
6. Holey Moley Golf Club Experience
If mum and dad are fans of playing golfs, heading to Holey Moley for the golfing experience should require no if’s or putt’s…
While this place surely isn’t an activity for kids after hours, anytime before 5pm will be a good time to show them the world of golfing! With neon lights against many Instagrammable backdrops in the bar-restaurant, this would be a good family day out to eat, putt and chill.
7. Take Flight with SkyHelix Sentosa
For the families who enjoy the sun, sand and sea – perhaps you can consider taking your Sunday up a notch with Skyhelix Sentosa.
While this might not be a universally enjoyable activity for kids, we are sure there some adrenaline-seeking ones who will love this open-air panoramic ride. At $18 per adult and $15 per child, feel the breeze as you enjoy a snack and beverage as you dangle your feet 35m above ground!
8. Explore the Wild and Wonderful at Asian Civilisations Museum
As part of the Singapore HeritageFest, the Asian Civilisations Museum will be hosting workshops, tours and exhibitions circling around all the flora and fauna which can be found in Asia.
From 2 all through to 29 May, visitors can expect exhibitions such as a family adventure trail and 3D art sculptures. Workshops such as coffee-tasting, plant-care, flower arrangement and air-day clay making are also family-friendly activities for kids to get their little fingers engaged.
The full list of activities and workshops can be found here.
9. Let’s Play @ D’Marquee
Calling all Easties! Starting 7 May, Downtown East will come alive with an indoor playground featuring 14 different activities for kids to prance around.
Apart from the usual bouncy castle and inflatable ball pit, there will also be themed inflatable obstacle courses, VR shooting games, Mini Dino rides and simulated King Kong robot rides.
Running till 26 June, each weekend ticket ($28) entitles you to a 100 minute playtime slot.
10. Visit Pororo Park
Live out Pororo’s reality within this indoor playground park, located at Marina Square.
Not only does this space have a petty little supermarket where kids can play pretend and prepare tea party meals, there’s also a little crib to see where Pororo tucks himself into bed.
Apart from these make-believe activities, there are also obstacle courses, a train ride, carousel station, theatre shows and more! Each ticket allows you to spend a total of 3 hours in Pororo’s world.
11. Sustainability Exhibitions in Malls Across Singapore
Chances are you’d probably be out in the malls over one of these weekends. If you happen to be, do look out for Landlease’s latest exhibition – “You Won’t Believe It’s Trash”.
Showcasing creative work from re-modelled and upcycled items, you can catch some of these exhibitions at Paya Lebar Quarter, JEM, Parkway Parade and 313@Somerset.
With this list of activities for kids in Singapore all through May, there’s at least 1 event you can look forward to each weekend – and even unto June!
