25 March School Holidays 2020 Activities for Kids (Singapore)

Of all the school holidays activities listing I have done over the past years, this year's March School Holidays activities for kids listing has got to be the shortest one... no thanks to COVID-19. 😥 A lot of attractions, malls and event companies have cancelled or postponed various shows and events but nevertheless, we still have a healthy listing of actvities to keep the kids occupied for the 9-day holiday period.

But more than that, this exhibition DIFFERS from Playeum's previous exhibitions in that instead of just introducing the art of play to kids, it allows kids to step into the world of those with special needs and experience the way how they interact, play and sense the world around them.
