Fun Activities for Kids

Share Article on:

Children love to be engaged with fun and enriching activities. It’s often a challenge to find exciting things to occupy children during the holidays and even more so now, with Singapore’s Phase 2 Heightened Alert.

Fret not, because our list of interesting activities will help make those holidays easier to get by. From making ice pops and baking in the kitchen, to painting their own T-shirts and creating obstacle courses, hours of fun await. 

We can’t promise they won’t ask you to do these activities again!  

 

1. Make Cute Popsicles at Home

Cool off from the hot June weather and make your own ice pops at home with these cute moulds. Set sail for the Arctic with the Zoku Polar Pop moulds featuring six moulds to help your little ones along the way! A group comprising an explorer, penguin, walrus, orca seal and polar bear are made perfectly with this. When frozen, you can easily remove them from the case with no rinsing needed. 

Try freezing fresh juices or Ribena. Or simply have the children create healthy smoothies to make the most delicious mid-day snack to keep cool in the heat. 

Make the perfect pink and purple ice pop by blending yogurt, with some milk, ice, and fresh fruit like strawberries and blueberries with a sprinkling of chia seeds. Healthy and delish – what’s not to love?

2. Paint your own T-shirt

If you’ve got a budding Picasso on your hands, the Streaks N Strokes DIY Kids T-shirt Painting Kit is exactly what you need. This kit has the basics for any child to indulge their inner artist. Whether it’s a graphic tee or an intricate design, the kit has the colours, stencils, brushes and paints to help them along. 

Each paint bottle gives between 5-8 painting sessions – so let your children create freely on fabric tote bags, other t-shirts and even canvases. 

The kit even comes with vanishing ink to draw freehand, with room for mistakes so there’s no need to erase. 

For more experienced hands, there’s even a Premium Kit with more paints and brushes to nurture your kid’s creative side.

4. Go for a Scooter Ride

Make tracks by getting your kids out of the house and into the parks! The Micro Scooter Maxi Micro Deluxe LED scooter uses a lean-to-steer design that moves intuitively with and is scaled for ages six to 12. This ensures they continue to scoot, confidently and safely as they grow. 

Going long-distance? This Swiss-designed scooter has LED lit wheels that need no batteries. The energy created by the children as they scoot fuels the induction-powered LED lights, so the paths are lit, whatever time of day they scoot.
