15 Activities for 9-11 Oct Children's Day Weekend 2020 Singapore

Children's Day in Singapore usually falls on the first Friday in October but this year, it is pushed back by one week due to the COVID-19 situation to allow for the PSLE to be completed.

So make most of the chance to bring them out this 9th to 11th October 2020 weekend and if you are fretting over how to occupy them, I have done the homework for you.

Free admission for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents

What counts as bullying? Can seemingly innocuous words and actions be hurtful to the people around us? What can we do when we witness bullying, and how can we all contribute to a bully-free culture? To answer these questions and raise awareness on this issue, the National Heritage Board (NHB) has collaborated with Singapore Children’s Society to present Scribble Town, an interactive exhibition for children aged between 9 and 12 that invites visitors to embark on a quest alongside characters Sam, Dan and Lydia, to save the fictional world of Scribble Town and bring colour back into their world.

On display at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall (SYSNMH) from now till 31 January 2021, the exhibition features comic artwork across three different stations – The Flying Mariner, Darkwoods Forest, and Bleak Mountain – and 80 comic frames. Visitors will follow the three characters on their journey as they attempt to fix the Colourwheel to save Scribble Town. Through the adventure, visitors will get to observe the interactions between Sam, Dan and Lydia – the ways in which they speak, act and respond to one another – in order to gain a better understanding of the different types of bullying, how and why bullying occurs, and the corresponding impact on the involved parties.
