So much to do, and so little time! How many of the following activities can you accomplish in just one week of the term one school holidays?
1. Paint the Town Red (or Green)!
KidZania Singapore goes Aquatic! this coming March! The bustling City makes a splash as it unveils a host of water-themed activities and enhanced B•Kidzanian loyalty benefits. Happening from 11-31 March—just nice for the week-long school break!—is Kids for a Greener World: Aquatic Life. As the title suggests, KidZania pays homage to water, the world’s most precious resource and invites all kids to partake in interactive activities and engaging community efforts all around the City! Besides water facts, there’s other eye-opening information spanning marine life and kids will develop an overall better understanding and appreciation of the importance of water conservation. Combining role play with educational and entertainment value, there’s never a dull moment at KidZania where kids can participate in a wide range of multi-disciplinary activities and real-world occupations (some courtesy of actual industry partner collaborations).
Whether it’s your first, subsequent or umpteenth visit, there’s no better time than now to sign up as a CitiZen in B•KidZanian, KidZania Singapore’s very own loyalty programme. All new and current CitiZens will enjoy these enhancements, which include members-only promotions, invites to exclusive events and other privileges! CitiZens can even earn or save up to 6 KidZos more at all role-play establishments, and rack up more kidZos in their accounts and have the freedom to choose how to spend their hard-earned currency. Existing CitiZens receive a bonus of 50 kidZos too, for every pal they refer to join B•KidZanian.

3. Beat the Heat!
A getaway to anywhere with ice and snow is a challenge—unless you’re planning to head to a faraway Nordic country. Fear not, thank goodness for Snow City, where you don’t even have to bundle up in advance as they have warm winter clothing for rent. Younger ones will just adore tramping around the snow flurries and even checking out the igloo and various slides, but there’s even snowboarding and skiing activities for the more adventurous looking for a somewhat more authentic experience. Until 31 March, if you’re a Passion Card holder, your family—that’s two adults and two kids—can enjoy two fun-filled hours spent in sub-zero temperatures at $60. They’ll even throw in complementary rental of jackets and boots.
Opening hours: 10am-6pm (daily; last admission at 5pm), 10am-7pm (school and PH; last admission at 7pm)

4. Hug a Mascot (and More)!
Located within Marina Square Shopping Centre and aptly described as Singapore’s first character-themed park, this educational and indoor playground spanning a whopping 11,000 square feet will appeal to kids and bring out the kid in their parents! We’re referring to Pororo Park of course, and it’s the region’s first outside of Pororo’s native Korea too. In fact, there are seven in Korea and three in China respectively, so this colourful indoor playground is no flash-in-the-pan concept. Sure, it’s no Disneyland, but it’s still really entertaining good fun. Even if you haven’t watched a single eppy of the animated series and aren’t familiar with Pororo and his bunch of buddies, there’s still plenty to love. Every indoor playground will always have its unique arrangement of tunnels, slides, nooks and crannies that will appeal to all kids. They’ll adore the ball pit, wandering around Pororo’s house, and ask for another go on the Pororo Express train. Stay long enough for the ‘live’ mascot performance and hang around for some photo taking and cuddles with the loveable penguin!
Pororo Park also hosts limited period activities and programmes for its juvenile visitors, so check out what’s happening in advance or whilst you’re there. (Coding Labs even had a recent run conducting several classes on location!) This March school holiday weekend, a mouth-watering workshop is in store for budding little chefs, where they can create unique bento sets using delicious sweet-vinegary sticky Japanese rice which will be shaped into cute characters. It’s just $15 for a lesson, great for ages 3 and over, and best of all, mummy and daddy can register as a participant too. (11 March, Sat, 430-530pm; 12 March, Sun, 130-230pm).
