This is some thrilling action you cannot miss out on. Ever wondered what it is like being a gymnast? You can take your try at the Elastic Acrobatics exhibits, by performing your own stunts and somersaults in mid-air. This is running all the way until 18 March at The Science Centre.
Splash @ Kidz Amaze
Children like to get wet! If your child is ready to have some splashing fun, this gigantic indoor water playground is just the right fit. It is a 23, 000 square feet space that has five slides and eight play decks. This is a great escapade for a weekend activity under the water without sun and tan. If your child likes getting dunked then expect most of it to come his or her way.
Family Fishing Trip
Punggol Park’s pond can be your perfect location for a nice and relaxing fishing ‘trip’ with the family. You can take a break from the crowds and have a casual time with the kids, teach them a thing or two about fishing. If your child wants to take a break, the route around the central pond is perfect for those who want to skate or ride.
Diggersite at Yishun
 Try your hand at operating real versions of heavy-duty machinery used for construction work. What makes it safe is the small size of the machinery making it easier to work with. There are seven available zones at the diggersite and they are the Tower Cranes, Hydraulic Excavators, The CLAW, Grabber Cranes, Wrecking Ball, Log Grapples, and the Forklift. Children will be tasked with construction works and small obstacles. Once finished, they will feel a certain sense of achievement. The tasks will also aid in the development of coordination, as well as fine and gross motor skills.
Maritime Experiential Museum at Resorts World Sentosa
 The Maritime Experiential Museum plays host to five brand new galleries to many engaging activities. Children can learn and explore about the maritime coin history, legacy and more. The 4D multi-sensory experience at the Typhoon Theatre will ensure to take the precious little ones on a vessel that will encounter a tumultuous storm.
Safari Zoo Run 2018
Remembering Singapore’s most loved animal personality, Ah Meng the Sumatran Orangutan, this run will not only commemorate the most famous animal but will also raise awareness on wildlife conservation. It helps to encourage family bonding and educates children on the preservation of wildlife in Singapore. You can also make a difference by donating to the Wildlife Reserves Singapore Conservation Fund (WRSCF). You can do your part by joining a team and running for a cause. What a better way to start out the New Year?
