Activities for Kids in Singapore

At first glance, there are not many activities for kids in Singapore. But although it is a huge metropolis, fit for business people and urbanites, there are many options for expat families, too. Find out about things to do indoors and outdoors and which activities for kids in Singapore are free of charge.


Whoever moves to Singapore with their family, imagining it to be a place exclusively for single urbanites and shopaholics, greatly underestimates the possibilities the city-state has to offer. Indeed, families with children will soon find that there is an abundance of activities for kids in Singapore. No matter if you are on a tight budget or have a fortune to spare, if you want to stay indoors or prefer the great outdoors, your little ones will not be disappointed.

Free Family Activities

There are lots of activities for kids in Singapore which offer free admission and are the perfect choice for expat parents who have to watch their budget. This is by no means a comprehensive list of activities for kids in Singapore. You may discover a lot more free activities for kids in Singapore while raising your children there.

What Singapore Has to Offer on a Rainy Day

As mentioned above, indoor activities for kids in Singapore are widely available, including some museums in Singapore which are suitable for children. No matter if your child cares more about video games or about museums and libraries, you will never be at a loss for what to do. Again, an exhaustive list is not possible here, but we have listed some of the most popular activities.

Much to Offer for the Little Ones

Not all activities for kids in Singapore are suitable for all age groups. There are also, however, many activities on offer for kids under the age of five:

Some programs and centers put a special emphasis on musical education. Gymboree Play and Music, for instance, offers kids a way to learn and develop physical and cognitive skills. Kindermusik, on the other hand, provides a musical curriculum for kids from newborn infants up to seven years of age.
