If there is a place where parents shouldn’t have any problem keeping their children busy, it is definitely Singapore. The city is literally filled with entertaining options for kids. Educative, creative or recreational, the activities we’ve selected make for a perfect family-time or will allow you some free-time while your children are enjoying themselves.

Whether you are a Singaporean or a tourist, we’re confident you will be interested in discovering our selection of the 10 best things to do with kids in Singapore.
Our first suggestion might sound obvious but… ask your kids what they think of paying a visit to pandas, tigers, elephants. See that smile? That’s an excited kid right here! Singapore Zoo is a place you definitely can’t miss, with more than 2,800 specimens from over 300 species in a rainforest environment featuring a massive playground, it easily ranks as the best animal park in all Asia and is worth countless visits! Trust us and book your Singapore Zoo Admission Ticket here (it even includes transportation service).
More pandas, more birds, more species of every kind. The originality of this themed park is that you will bring your kids on a river trip and allow them to discover the wildlife of 8 rivers habitats (Congo, Ganges, Murray, Nile, Mekong, Mississippi, Yangtze and Amazon). More than 5,000 aquatic and terrestrial animals will surround you and you will even find the world’s largest freshwater aquarium before your eyes. That’s enough reasons to book a River Safari Park Admission Ticket we think (there you will have your transport included too).
03 – Enter the amazing Marine Life Park of Singapore.
This is arguably one of the greatest parks you will find in Asia. Showcasing the world’s largest aquarium, the Marine Life Park will stun you with its unmatched reserves of aquatic species and an extremely diverse panel of activities. You will be offered to snorkel, interact with rays, visit a multi-sensorial museum, sleep next to the open ocean, play in a water park or try surfing… Simply grandiose.
04 – Fulfill your thirst for knowledge in the Singapore Science Centre.
With more than 850 interactive exhibits spread over 14 galleries, this is a giant science centre where kids can discover the principles and many of the world’s mysteries while playing and having fun. Countless attractions and themes are waiting for them, from dinosaurs to spaceships to medicine to mechanics, they will not even realize how much they learn. The place also hosts Singapore’s only IMAX dome theatre.
05 – Try a new sport: indoor body-flying!
This is basically a world premiere, as Singapore is the first place where you can find a wind tunnel for indoor skydiving. Your children will be able to conquer gravity in a safe environment and come back to earth having felt the thrill of free fall at wind speed of up to 300 km/h! This is available for kids from 7 years old and a flight certificate will be delivered at the end of the activity. You can book your First Timers’ Skydiving Experience here.
This is a very unique opportunity to witness wild animals in their naturalistic night-time habitats. Bringing kids in this adventure will allow them to watch 2,500 animals (yes, you read that correctly) while riding a tram bringing them across 7 geographical zones of the world. Book your Night Safari Park and Tram Safari Ride Admission Ticket right here to unveil fascinating after-dark wildlife.
Stimulate their senses and book this Perfume Workshop For Kids: “The Perfumer’s Apprentice”.

A delicate moment that awakes kids’ olfactive memory and creativity and could reveal some talents!
08 – Bring them to the museum! (Yeah, really…)
Bringing kids to a museum can easily turn a family time into a disastrous day. Unless we’re talking toys museum! Singapore hosts one, called “Mint Museum of Toys”, that features more than 3,000 vintage toys and childhood memorabilia. A great occasion to show your kids who Popeye the Sailor and Astro Boy are!
With so many TV Shows involving very young chefs being broadcasted nowadays, you might have children at home tempted to try by themselves.

Kids will team up with other children to prepare some delicious Asian dishes and the parents are also welcome! It promises to be a great family time so book your Family & Children Cooking Class right here.
This one is for the teenagers (from 12 years) willing to leave their video-games for a minute to become the heroes of their own quest.
