More than 70 Activities for Kids this June School Holidays 2017 (Singapore)

No comments :
Of all the listings I compile whenever the public or school holidays come along, it is the June and December School Holidays that I always dread compiling the most. The reason? That's because these two holidays are always packed with SO MANY activities for kids!

So a good 8 hours later, I have finally completed my 'homework' just before the school holidays click into motion. No need to fret over how to keep the kiddos occupied this June School Holidays... there're more than 70 activities below to pick from - in fact, I would easily say the activities number more than 100 if you count the individual activities under the broad banner of Children's Season and Pesta Ubin!


I've divided the activities into OUTDOOR and INDOOR so plan away! And have fun!
