ANIMALS 9 Farmart Centre Take a break from the city and get up close with farm animals at Farmart’s Animal Corner, where kids can learn about goats, rabbits, hamsters, birds, frogs and tortoises. There are also educational farm tours, animal feeding sessions, fresh farm produce on sale, prawning activities and hawker food available. Free entry. 67 Sungei Tengah Road 10 We Are the Furballs If a pet puppy isn’t an option, the first dog petting café in Singapore is the place for young animal lovers to experience a pooch up close. Gentle and with relaxed temperaments, the six furry balls of happiness at the café – Duchess, Bui, Slinky, Lulu, Mochi and Yuki – are sure to put a smile on children’s faces. Note: Minimum age of entry is 10 years, and there are regulations regarding adult supervision. #07-07 Bugis Plus, 201 Victoria Street

PLAY 6 Splash @ Kidz Amaze The opening of Singapore’s first indoor water playground is great news for water lovers, who can now splash about regardless of rain, lightning or haze. Punggol SAFRA’s new complex includes an Enchanted Deep Sea theme, interactive walls, five slides and birthday party rooms with direct access to the water fun. SAFRA Punggol, 9 Sentul Crescent 7 Diggersite Crazy about construction? Here, kids can operate a mini- excavator (no kidding!) and bring their Bob the Builder dreams to life. Operate the excavator to pick up bricks and knock over metal bottles in the outdoors section, or scoop up colourful balls with a digger indoors. Parents can also operate the machinery (we foresee dads having just as much fun as little ones), and it’s great for helping kids develop fine motor skills, too! Raintree Cove, 1020 East Coast Parkway #01-04 8 LilliPutt Mini Golf Esplanade, to the much-loved hawker centre and the quirky Haw Par Villa. Look out for special effects too, such as the MRT train that takes off when your golf ball lands in a carriage! 902 East Coast Parkway, #03-05 Block B, Big Splash This is a fun spot for the whole family, with 18 mini-golf holes modelled on Singapore landmarks – from the iconic ART 4 Keppel Centre for Art Education to be an art curator; these hands-on play activities at the Keppel Centre will stimulate imagination, curiosity and critical thinking skills. Rain or shine, this is a wonderful afternoon beyond your own four walls! National Gallery Singapore, 1 S. Andrew’s Road 5 See a Show Live theatre is a fabulous learning experience for kids, and these two productions will delight the kids and your hip pocket: the much-loved children’s farmyard favourite Charlotte’s Web ( until 11 December; KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT) and the ballet classic The Nutcracker by Singapore Dance Theatre (7 to 11 December; Esplanade ) .
