This March holidays, give your kids a break from the endless tuition and enrichment classes. Instead, get in some valuable parent-child bonding time with these 9 activities!
#1: Fly kites at Marina Barrage
Kite-flying is an activity that’s universally enjoyable – regardless if you’re 7 or 70. So grab your kids (and parents, if they’re up for it), head down to Marina Barrage, buy a kite, and get ready for an afternoon of fun.

#2: Go indoor skydiving
If your child’s a bit of a daredevil, bring them indoor skydiving at iFly! If you book online prior to dropping in, you’ll get to enjoy a discounted price of $89 – $109 for 2 skydives. Do note that this activity is only open to children who are 7 or older.

#3: Paint together
Pretty much every kid we know loves to paint… so head down to Arteastiq at Mandarin Gallery with your little one for an afternoon of fun and creativity!

#4: Picnic at the Botanical Gardens
Take advantage of the cool weather that we’ve been blessed with recently, and have a picnic with your kids at the Botanical Gardens! If you’re up for this, we recommend scheduling your picnic for 10th March – there’s a “Disney’s Love Stories” event happening that day, and because it’s the school holidays, you’ll even get free admission to the National Orchid Garden.

#5: Go horse-riding
With 10 riding arenas and 150 horses and ponies under their wing, Gallop Stable is one of the largest public riding centres in Singapore. If your little tyke is too scared to get on an actual horse, Gallop Stable also offers other (less intimidating!) activities such as pony and carriage rides, pony and donkey feeding, and outback camp fires.

#6: Do yoga
Doing yoga with your child can be a great bonding activity. If you’re already a practitioner, and you’ve got a mat at home, just hop on over to YouTube – you’ll be able to find plenty of “family yoga” tutorials there. If you’d prefer to have your child learn yoga in a more structured and secure environment, sign them up for a class at a proper studio. So-Yoga, True Yoga, and Om Shiva are a few places which offer kid’s classes!
#7: Explore Kidzania
If your kid is telling you that they want to be a doctor one day, a journalist the next day, and a pilot the day after, here’s what you do – bring them to Kidzania, where they can try out their hand at all these occupations! Entry is restricted to children who are 4 and above.

#8: Bounce away on a trampoline
Never been to a trampoline park before? Well, it’s time to remedy that. Head down to one of AMPED’s two locations, where you’ll be able to bounce on more than 5,000 square feet of interconnected trampolines.
Psst: AMPED’s website cites a study from NASA saying that a 10 minute jump on a trampoline is equivalent to a 30 minute run. Get ready for a good workout!

If all else fails, just bring your kids to USS and let them loose. You can never go wrong with the roller-coasters!
