If your little ones are animal lovers, no better place to introduce them to the animal kingdom than in their natural habitats. And we’re not just talking about the Singapore Zoo! Choose from Jurong Bird Park, Butterfly Park, S.E.A. Aquarium, Night Safari and more to admire the wonderful diversity of wildlife in Singapore.

Pack your bags for an overnight adventure in the great outdoors. Take a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city – including using smart devices – as you and your kids pitch a tent at East Coast Park, bond over a BBQ meal, play card games and sleep under the stars. Do remember to also apply for a camping permit from any AXS stations or apply online in advance!

Unleash your child’s creativity at Playeum, a children’s centre that believes in learning through play. With regularly changing exhibits, the little ones are encouraged to explore, create, and express themselves through open-ended, free play.
While enjoying these fun experiences, we know it is important to keep our children adequately hydrated. How about bringing along cold water or vitamin drinks in a Disney Sports Bottle that will keep the beverage chilled for hours? Check out the full range of Sports Bottles here.
