3 Great Outdoor Activities for Kids in Singapore
Our kids generally don’t spend enough time doing outdoor activities these days, and a major reason is the fact that they stay cooped up at home and tied to the screen of a mobile device. It’s important to help them balance out their lifestyle by getting them to try out some of these fun outdoor activities.
Kids love to play a lot of video games that are based on fantasy and often end up playing characters that use bows.
What if they got to try archery in the real world instead of pretending to be a ranger online? This activity will help them build strength, improve hand-eye coordination and teach them some discipline. On top of that, they’ll be learning a skill that they can brag to their friends about!
Get in touch with nature
There’s nothing wrong with getting a little sweaty while exploring a massive park. Exploring the flora and fauna of Singapore is also a great way to teach your kids about the environment around them. It will also teach them about the importance of appreciating the wonderful green city that Singapore is.
One example is Admiralty Park, which has multiple trails to explore and is home to over 100 different species. It’s a great place for kids to become acquainted with birds, dragonflies and the adorable long-tailed macaques.
If you and your kids enjoy cycling or skating, you could also try riding around the Park Connector Network, which spans over 200km. It’s a great set up, as you can rent a bike at one designated pit stop and then drop it off at another one – no need to ride all the way back to return it!
Another fun family activity is prawning. It’s relaxing and can potentially provide your family with their next meal. There are a lot of prawning spots in Singapore these days, as the hobby has picked up a lot of steam. You’ll be able to find them East, West, and even in central areas like Bugis+!
There’s something great about catching your own dinner too. It will help teach your kids the value of being able to provide themselves with a meal.
Of course, you’ve still got to remember to protect your kids from the sun. Before letting them take part in any of these activities, make sure that they ready up with our UltraMist Kids Tear-Free Sunscreen. It’s SPF of 50 will make sure that they can have fun in the sun without risking getting burnt!
