What time is it? Summer time! While we stay home (again) with Phase 2’s heightened measures, here’s a list of fun techtivities you can do with your family in the comfort of your own homes!
In the event of these heightened measures, we hope that you take the necessary precautions when going out and continue to stay safe and healthy! Keep holding on! 💪
Watch Theatre Storytelling Sessions Online
Gateway Arts Limited have super fun storytelling sessions suitable for children ages 3 to 7 years old (on-demand available). This June, they have a lineup of FREE and paid online sessions that you and your child can enjoy!
With fable titles like Tiger Loses His Stripes and The Brave Dragons, you can spend the holidays gaining memorable lessons that your child (and even you!) can benefit from in order to better navigate the world.
Experience #MuseumFromHome by the National Museum
This timeless repository of online resources and programmes developed by the National Museum will surely keep your family entertained for hours on end! Get curious and learn through technology, and even learn about technology, such as the Setron TV (Hint: It’s a locally assembled television in the 1970s). Access free video tutorials on arts and crafts, baking and science, that are suitable for all to enjoy and great for family bonding! You can even download and print activity sheets to do as a family.
Learn How To Grow Edible Plants with NParks
Since we are advised to stay home these days, why not bring the outdoors to you? Keep your house fresh and green by planting your own edible plants. Here’s a helpful playlist by NParks on how you can grow your own! They show how to grow herbs like lime and basil, as well as vegetables like eggplant and lady’s fingers. Best of all, you can learn from the NParks experts from home, all thanks to technology.
All the best, we’re rooting for you!
STEM Stories with Piqolo Kids
Join little space explorers Peppy and Lili as they embark on a mission to locate their missing eggs in the tropical wilderness of Singapore! Piqolo Kids comics are the perfect way to introduce STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) to young ones aged 6 to 9 (younger and older kids can enjoy too!).
Volume 2 of the exciting series will be coming out this June, so keep your eyes peeled for it! Meanwhile, Volume 1 is on sale – it’s adorable and jam-packed full of fun activities for your little ones to get acquainted with STEM.
