Year-End School Holidays Activities for Kids 2017 (November Edition)


What do you know - the year-end November/December school holidays are here but what I really want to know is how on earth did 2017 pass by so quickly??? And because it is that time of year again where parents start looking for activities to keep their kids occupied, don't worry... I got you covered.

There are so much to do that I have decided to spread the activities into two listings once again - one for activities taking place in the month of November and the other for December. And judging from the amount of activities for this month alone (50!!!), it is going to be a fun-filled holiday period!


Oh, and in case you are wondering about the Christmas shows at the shopping malls as well as the Meet & Greet compilation, here it is: www.cheekiemonkie.net/2017/11/christmas-shows-and-meet-greets-shopping-malls-singapore-2017.html

Free admission for Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents and visitors aged 6 years and below


75 years after the fall of Singapore, rediscover this watershed event through a special international exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore. Hear first-hand accounts from witnesses to war: ordinary men and women whose lives were upheaved by the outbreak of hostilities in Singapore in 1942. The exhibition presents the complexities of the events that led to the fall of Singapore, paying homage to the extraordinary tenacity with which these men and women bore their circumstances.

Featuring artefacts from 10 overseas museums and institutions, Witness to War will also explore how Singapore’s fall was part of a wider campaign waged by the Japanese Empire across the Pacific.

Playeum's 'Making It Home' Exhibition
Now until 29 Apr 2017
Tues - Sun: 10am - 6pm (Closed on Mondays)
Playeum (Blk 47, Malan Road, Gillman Barracks, #01-23, Singapore 109444)
$22 per child (1-12) | Accompanying adult: Free | Additional accompanying adult: $10


Located at Gillman Barracks, Playeum is a museum without walls which hopes to inspire children through self-directed exploration and learning and in the process, establish a culture of meaningful and impactful play. The new exhibition is all about dreaming rooms, making spaces and creating places. Kids (and parents) will be able to experience the home as a place where many ordinary materials can have multiple purposes and support imagination, innovation and sustainability.

Interestingly, the spaces within the indoor playground - if you can call Playeum that - have been transformed into different ‘rooms’, each with a different purpose with different opportunities for the kids to explore, experiment and redefine. Whether it is imagining colours, materials and designs for floors walls and ceilings, to conjuring up art works with sand or recyclable materials, kids can stretch their creativity and imagination to the limit!
