Planning to take the tots out for a fun weekend and cant’t think of where to go? We have a few ideas that will have them smiling from ear to ear!
Tampines Regional Library
The new Tampines Regional Library at Our Tampines Hub opened on 5 August 2017 and it is massive. Towering at five levels, it is filled with countless spaces that can accommodate to different age groups and interests. The children’s collection is split over two floors and you can be assured that there is plenty of books and space for your child to explore. From whimsical reading corners in the form of bird cages and hollow tree trunks to low-height book shelves specially catered for your little one, there is also a playground that will surely entice your child to enter the library on the weekend.
Location: 1 Tampines Walk, #02-01 Our Tampines Hub, 528523

Gardens by the Bay
We are nearing the Mid-Autumn festival and in celebration of it, Gardens by the Bay has a great lineup of activities for your family. There is a lantern display located at the outdoor gardens where sprawling lantern sets reflect scenes of bountiful harvests and abundance. Do not miss out on “Waters of Prosperity”, the largest lantern display created by the Gardens to date. You can also engage your toddlers in fun activities like lantern decorating, umbrella painting and learning to tie Chinese knots all at the convenience of the Garden itself. Indulge in a wide variety of Asian delights at the Food Street that is sure to wow your taste buds too. There is no better way to celebrate the festival than to be at Gardens by the Bay this year!
Location: 18 Marina Gardens Dr, Singapore 018953
Date: Now till 8 October 2017 (‘Illuminations of Joy’ light display will run till 31 October 2017)
Time: Various timings for different activities, but it’s best to arrive at 5pm to enjoy the whole experience.
Wild Wild Wet
Our favourite Wild Wild Wet water theme park recently got a facelift and it has been upgraded with new slides and rides. The terrifying Free Fall slide is almost near vertical, and drops at the speed of up to 50 feet per second. Warning: it is only for thrill seekers, not for the faint-hearted! There is also Yippie!, a shallow sloshing area filled with soft play equipment designed to provide a safe and fun environment for toddlers. There is no doubt it is going to be a fun-filled weekend!

Hours: Mondays to Fridays, 1-7pm, Saturdays and Sunday, 10am-7pm

The Mid-Autumn festival hype is real, and Chinatown is going all out with the festivities this year. Check out the annual street light-up in its full glory along Eu Tong Sen Street, New Bridge Road and South Bridge Road. On 1st October, there is a mass lantern walk where you can light up lanterns and join in a walk around Chinatown. There is also a Festive Street Bazaar in the area selling mooncakes, decorative collectibles and more. The place will definitely be packed with energy, take a stroll down Chinatown to soak in the lively atmosphere with family and friends!

West Side Story
Inspired by Shakespeare’s love story, Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story’s ground-breaking choreography and unforgettable score changed the face of musical theatre in 1957. It is now showing at the Marina Bay Sands Theatres and packs a powerful punch, both dramatically and musically. Your worries are unfounded because this musical is suitable for children aged three and above (but with an advisory message of some adult content), and it is definitely a new experience for the both of you to enjoy.
Location: Marina Bay Sands Theatres, 10 Bayfront Ave, Singapore 018956
Date: Now till 30 September 2017
