We have listed some fun things to do on Children’s Day weekend in no particular order. Read on:



3-Gen Family Funfest by Rise & Shine


Wouldn’t it be an amazing idea where you can indulge in all-day play with your entire family? Not only kids and their parents but even Grandparents can participate in an array of fun activities.


Rise & Shine’s 3-gen Family Funfest will be held from 8 to 9 October 2016 at City Square Mall Atrium.


In our hectic lifestyle it’s easy to forget how to have fun and laugh with our family and loved ones. It’s about time for that fun day out to play with family – kids, parents, grandparents, siblings – participate in contests and family-bonding activities. After all, that’s what makes the best of memories!


One of the BIG highlights of 3-Gen Family Funfest will be the attempt to set new Singapore Book of Records for the most people drinking Cultured Milk together.


There are lots of other amazing activities for babies and toddlers like Baby Picasso and Crawling contests. For slightly older kids, parents and grandparents there are coloring contest, lookalike contest and so on.

Visit Vivocity’s Revamped Play Area


Vivocity has always been the favorite destination of families for shopping, food and play. Vivocity’s play area was closed for revamp for some time. Good news is that it is now open! Look forward to the new slide emerging from that ever-popular small hill or let the kids bounce on the new rubber trampolines.


Vivocity’s Play area also hosts refreshed Wet Area. Fountains will encourage the kids to play and get wet amongst the water spouts. Seesaws, Hanging Pods are other attractions of the play area.

Visit Future World


Those of us who have not yet visited Future World which is The ArtScience Museum’s permanent exhibition, Children’s’ Day Weekend is the perfect time. Future World is a world of high-tech, immersive digital art installations. Currently it features 16 spectacular art installations created in collaboration with teamLab, an award-winning Tokyo-based art collective of "ultra-technologists" that includes artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, architects and designers.


Future World is fully-immersive exhibition where Art meets Science.


• All of this stimulation helps children become more coordinated and do better in school. Libraries are great source of books and activities.

Watch Kids Movies or Plays


Family that watches movies together, stays together! Have you watched “Storks” yet? Or ready to enjoy “Wicked – The Musical”? While Storks emphasizes the importance of the family, Wicked takes us to the colorful fantasy world of wizards, witches, sorcery and magic and experience an enchanting story of two unlikely friends - the blonde and popular Glinda and the green-skinned outcast, Elphaba.


But just as you set expectations, set boundaries and make sure they know what the boundaries are.
