If you’re looking for new family activity ideas, though, we have you covered. We’ve put together a quick list of the best weekend family activities that you likely haven’t tried before!


Read on to find out how these fun family activities can take your weekends to the next level!




1. Sky riding and racing

As one of the most popular spots on the island, Skyline Luge is the perfect spot for weekend family activities. You’ll never run out of things to do here!


First, you can hop on its skyline life chairs and see the breathtaking, relaxing views of the island’s skylines, beaches, and forests.


After taking in the views, get your adrenaline pumping by joining a leisure race down its four race tracks: Expedition, Jungle, Dragon, and Kupu Kupu.


Each track comes with different challenges, so we’d recommend joining the race more than once to get the entire Skyline Luge experience!




2. Say hello to dinosaurs

Is there anything more entertaining (and intriguing) to children than dinosaurs? Changi Jurassic Mile is worth checking out if you have kids!


Home to more than 20 prehistoric creatures, including the tyrannosaurus rex and velociraptors, your kids will get to witness baby dinosaurs coming out of their massive dinosaur eggs.


If you grew up watching the Jurassic Park film series, visiting Changi Jurassic Mile will be like your childhood fantasies coming to life!


Besides the true-to-life dinosaurs, you can also bike around and explore Changi Airport Connector and Jurassic Mile for only $14.




3. Horse riding


Gallop Stable Singapore

Does your little one love interacting with animals? If so, why not get up close and personal with them through a horse riding session at Gallop Stable?


For a different kind of family activity in Singapore, horse riding can be a way to help your little one develop a new skill or hobby! A half-hour session at Gallop Stable only costs $65.


Sometimes all it takes is one session to ignite a child’s interests, so who knows, you might be raising an Olympic equestrian soon!




4. Join art workshops

There’s no better way to unleash your child’s hidden talents than by enrolling (and joining) them in craft workshops.


From painting and drawing classes to calligraphy and flower making workshops, there are plenty of creative avenues that people of all ages can explore in Singapore. Some are even specifically designed for families to bond and have fun together.


If you want your kid to learn how to harness their creative side, we recommend trying out Natalie Studio which offers watercolour, calligraphy, and scrapbooking workshops.


For those who want to get their hands dirty, drop by Goodman Ceramics Studios for its range of pottery programmes open for all ages!




5. Get reacquainted with nature


Kranji Countryside

Singapore might be smaller compared to our neighbouring countries, but it doesn’t fall short when it comes to relaxing nature spots!


Escape the stressful urban life and enjoy the countryside with your loved ones. At Kranji Countryside, you can witness farm animals getting fed and milked and see vegetables getting farmed, a completely different scene from what we’re used to in the city!


The area is made up of different farms linked to each other, allowing your family to visit several farms in a single day!




6. See futuristic exhibitions

The ArtScience Museum is a place where art, science, and technology come together through futuristic exhibitions that will blow your mind!


Here, you can see interactive and digital art installations that you’ll likely never see in traditional art museums in Singapore.


We don’t want to spoil the experience, so we recommend dropping by yourself to know what we’re talking about. One thing’s for sure, though, you will have a hard time dragging your children out of the museum!




Making weekends more fun and exciting
