5 Family-friendly Activities To Do With Your Kids For FREE This March Holidays!
Woohoo! Once again, it’s the holidays!
Although it’s just another boring day for all of us working adults, it’s a week of break from school for all the schooling children.
Maybe not so boring for those of you working from home with your kids on holiday.
Now for those of you who can’t afford to have any disruptions at work, we got you covered. 😉
But anyway, I just wanted to say childhood is a wonderful time.
All the fun and nonsense we get ourselves into forms many unforgettable memories that we reminisce as we get older.
So how about you make some of these memories with your children while they’re still young?
TL;DR: 5 Free Activities to Do With Your Kids This Holiday
Cultivate a Habit of Reading
Reading is a great habit to have for your children.
It promotes brain development and helps with their problem-solving abilities in school!
Furthermore, it is also a way to deepen the bond between parent and child.
Did you know that reading to them daily makes it easier for the child to open up about issues to their parents when they grow older?
So pick a date and hit the library or bookstore with your kids!
Check out a few books and have some fun reading with your children this holiday!
Show Off Your Best Dance Moves!
Bored of doing the same old exercises again and again?
It’s time to jazz up your workout with your children at home!
The best part is that you can do it for absolutely no cost, no need for the latest gaming console with dancing games.
Pick out a dance workout on YouTube and start getting in that daily exercise!
If you know what songs your child currently likes, even better!
Grab a dance-a-long video of their current favourite songs, and they might even start dancing without you telling them!
Work Together on an Arts & Crafts Project
While we’re on the topic of building a stronger bond with your kids, here’s another activity you can try!
Work together with your children to create something together.
Maybe everyone can work on a mural featuring your children’s favourite movie characters, or you can work together to build your children’s fantasy house with everyday materials found at home!
Just involve everyone in the house for this fun little project!
Who knows, this could create more than just an art piece, and it might create unforgettable memories with them.
Behold the Wonders of Nature
Even though staying at home with the current COVID-19 situation would be ideal, it’s nice to be outdoors from time to time.
If you’re ready to “touch grass”, here are some fun and free ways to expose your children to the great outdoors!
Hop on over to a vegetable farm that provides free admission here in Singapore!
Maybe you can take this chance to spark an interest in eating their veggies. 😉
If going to a farm is too far or out of the way for you, we suggest bringing your children to a park nearby and letting them soak in the fresh air and sunlight.
Take a quick stroll and marvel at flora and fauna around you!
If you’re lucky, you might be able to see cute animals like otters or monkeys running about.
Travel Back in Time Through Singapore’s History!
“Oh no, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, it’s so costly to travel via VTL. But there’s nothing to see or do here in Singapore!”
Think Singapore is boring?
Well, that’s because you have not seen what we have to offer!
Ready to travel back in time with your children?
Take a walk around all the old-timey shophouses or feast on some delicious hawker food!
Enjoy a mix of modern and retro when you check out the fantastic street art in Singapore.
Ranging from colourful murals with whacky designs to accurate depictions of the past, such as the samsui women who built our country, there are all sorts of art for everyone!
If you wanna take your history lesson further, feel free to hop by a museum offering free entry.
Who knows, you and your children might just learn something new this trip!
