Any recommendations for child-friendly activities to do or places to go in Singapore over weekend, other than going to shopping malls?

1. Visit a Dairy Farm Hay Dairies has over 1,000 goats of different breeds, such as Alpine goats from Minnesota. Swing by before 10.30am to catch the milking process. Address: 3 Lim Chu Kang Lane 4 Nearest MRT: Choa Chu Kang www.haydairies.com.sg 2. Spend a day in Pulau Ubin Hop on a bumboat at Changi Point Ferry Terminal and head to the neighbouring island of Pulau Ubin. Explore the island on a rented bike, admire abundant wildlife at Chek Jawa Wetlands, and step back in time to spot Singapore’s last remaining kampongs (Malay hamlets or villages). 3. Discover Singaporean Life Look deep into the lives of locals at Once Upon This Island, a specially-curated art exhibition that explores the amazing stories of people living in contemporary Singapore. Address: Singapore Art Museum 71 Bras Basah Road Nearest MRT: Bras Basah www.singaporeartmuseum.sg 4 Set Sail Jump on board a remodelled WWII Vietnamese war craft and explore Singapore on land and sea with DUCKtours.

For us, we like to bring kids to public swimming pool weekly. There are a lot of free water play areas in Singapore e.g. Science Centre, Botanic Garden, Garden By the Bay. In addition, you can bring kids to zoo, river safari, bird park. You can sign up membership to visit these places frequently. If you have running out of ideas, you can purchase Kevin Ang's book: Got Kids Go Where from Mothercare.

Take your child to Tanderra! It's like a real country club for kids - lots of fun. A good time to go would be during Easter. :)
