Who wants to walk among giants? We’re not talking literally of course but jaws are sure to drop when you take your kids on a walk amongst a collection of some of the tallest tree species in Southeast Asia. The Botanic Gardens’ Learning Forest Tour consists of trekking on boardwalks and elevated walkways and exploring several different habitats in the course of an hour. Be sure to arrive 15 minutes before each tour to get a spot (nearest entrance: Tyersall Gate).


Stories in Art: Wolves in the Walls

National Gallery never disappoints with its vast offerings of storytelling and arts and crafts sessions. Passionate storyteller, Kamini Ramachandran, is excited to narrate a classic tale into an immersive experience.

Bring along your favourite soft toy to make it even more special. Not advised for kids under 6 years.

If you’ve got a kid between 5-10 years who has wanted to pick up a percussion instrument, now’s your chance to test their enthusiasm. Ritmo studio is offering a free trial session where kids are invited to test out a range of percussion instruments before they decide to sign up for the 7-session course. Priority will be given to 1st time attendees.
