The long-awaited school holidays are just around the corner. Though it’s the time of the year that children are most excited for, parents might struggle with trying to keep their little ones occupied.

What’s more, it's a good opportunity to have your whole family in one place and get a good bonding session done.
4. Cruise to nowhere
Most of us haven’t had the opportunity to travel in the past two years, and a cruise to nowhere is probably the best option now!
Hit the high seas on a luxurious cruise, where you can enjoy all-day dining, entertainment options, and of course, a glorious view of the sea.
5. Visit Kidztopia and indoor playgrounds

Furthermore, these indoor playgrounds are certified SG Clean, and have hygiene measures put in place to ensure the safety of your child.

7. Unleash your creativity at art workshops
Art workshops are a great way to unleash your child’s creativity, and there are many available. From pottery to fabric art or even slime making, there are plenty of workshops that are suitable for children.
If a workshop is not to your fancy, take your child out art jamming and have a good bonding session together.
8. Get close to nature
There are many opportunities to get close to nature in our Garden City.
