Check off this list of activities for the kiddos this June holidays. Best of all, they’re all FREE!
Every Saturday and Sunday from 3:30 p.m to 7:00 p.m., Castle Beach welcomes all families to connect with nature (and each other) in a massive sand building activity at East Coast Park. You can either BYOB (bring your own buckets) or borrow the ones provided.
East Coast Park Svc Rd, Carpark E2
Whether you’re looking to go on a food tour, Heartland tour or a historically themed bike tour, be sure to check out Let’s Go Tour Singapore! The company recently won the Best Tour Experience at the Singapore Tourism Awards 2019 for their Singapore 1920s: Trails of Tan Ah Huat bike tour.
This tour is perfect for kids 8 years and older, and if you have younger kids – be sure to book a private tour!
Let the kids stay up past their bedtimes at the ArtScience Museum. Every third Thursday evening each month, ArtScience Museum keeps its doors open straight through until 10pm offering free performances, late exhibition viewings and special 1-for-1 entry to exhibitions (7pm-10pm).
See a different side of the museum after regular hours where exploration and experimentation are de rigueur of the night; where artistic collaboration and discovery take over the museum’s spaces; where boundaries shift, collide and dissolve.

Did you know that East Coast Park is home to the Road Safety Community Park?
A fond memory for most Singaporeans, this miniature traffic environment serves as a fun simulation of our streets. Kids can play pretend as a pedestrian or motorist. Open 24 hours.

Weather permitting, the Science Centre Singapore hosts free stargazing sessions at the Observatory every Friday from 7:45 to 10 p.m. Astronomy buffs will be thrilled to see star clusters and planets.

While iPads are tempting entertainment choices for kids these days, try this novel idea instead: Visit one of the dozens of public libraries across the island for a storytelling session. Led by skillful raconteurs, the story times happen every day, at no cost. Check venues and times online.
Does your little guy dream of being a firefighter someday? Take him down for a visit to a local fire station where he can learn about a day in the life of a firefighter in Singapore.
Most fire stations host visitors every Saturday morning from 9 to 10 a.m. Kids can also take pictures in a big Red Rhino fire engine or wearing a fire vest.
