The June school holidays are just around the corner. This means that many families will be gearing up to go on that long-awaited overseas trip together.
However, even if you and your brood decide to remain in the Lion City, you won’t necessarily have to miss out on all the fun.
With plenty of things to do right here in Singapore, you and the family will be able to enjoy all kinds of activities and still come away with Instagram-worthy shots and great memories to last a lifetime.
Keep scrolling to see what various local destinations have in store for you and the kids so you can start planning a ‘getaway’ that’s wonderful and wallet-friendly at the same time.
Kids are bundles of energy. Now that they’re out of school for a month, they need places to go and things to do to keep them occupied.
In support of Made For Families, Klook has curated a series of fun deals and activities to encourage families to share joyful adventures and create memories together.
You can choose from a wide range of multiple visit passes, including the Klook Ultimate Playgrounds Pass, which includes access at discounted rates to:
Don’t worry about needing to pack them all into one weekend as the pass is valid for four months, giving you enough time to decide where and when you want to go.
There are also family and group discounts, and savings of up to 20% when you package specific activities together.
For more information, visit Klook’s website here.
When you’ve exhausted yourself from all that thrilling playtime, it’s time to turn to some therapy — retail therapy, that is.
Parents can head to mothercare to meet all their shopping needs. From clothes and cots to strollers and soft toys, the store has everything you need, whether it’s for your newborn baby or your slightly older kid.
Offering a wide variety of maternity and baby products for almost 40 years, it’s a great place to stock up without having to run from one store to another.
From 4 to 12 Jun, mothercare will be giving away 100 goodie bags with S$5 vouchers and essential items worth S$50. Simply be the first 50 to quote <Made For Families> while making a purchase at the HarbourFront or Paragon outlet to redeem.
They are also offering a free VIP membership worth S$300 to all pregnant mums-to-be who aren’t existing members. Lots of great news for those who can’t resist freebies and discounts.
Bonding over a hearty meal is a favourite Singaporean pastime, and who better to do it with than your own family?
At casual dining restaurant The Coastal Settlement, sit down and tuck into one of their Picnic Packages for Families before letting the kids run around amidst the lush surrounding greenery. It’ll be the perfect opportunity to snap some lovely photos as well.
Look out for an exciting deal in June, where you can get S$80 worth of picnic essentials with each purchase of a picnic basket. Follow The Coastal Settlement on Facebook and Instagram to stay updated on the deets.
There’s also PastaMania — the halal-certified Italian dining chain loved by young and old for over two decades.
In June, little ones dining at the restaurant can opt for the dedicated kids’ menu, where they can choose a pasta dish, appetiser, and drink for just S$9.90.
If you’d rather have a night in, you can also order a delivery of the Feast For 3 bundle, which includes three appetisers, one pasta, two pizzas, and three drinks from S$46.
There’s a reason staycations are so popular with Singaporeans. Who wouldn’t love to spend a weekend sleeping in a swanky new environment and enjoying fancy amenities? Plus, those without a tub at home finally have a reason to buy bath bombs.
If you’re in the mood to indulge and spoil the family a little bit, check out Fairmont Singapore’s upsized offers.
Book an overnight stay in the Fairmont Room or Deluxe Room, with breakfast for two adults and up to two children included. You can also request an extra bed for the kiddos.
You’ll also receive S$50 return stay vouchers – because once is never enough – and S$100 nett dining credits per night, which you can use at selected restaurants and for in-room dining.
Singapore residents are very lucky as our little red dot has loads of family-friendly attractions all year round.
But for a limited time, tickets and bundles at certain destinations will be available at discounted prices.
Otah & Friends, which can be found at hotspots around the island, features lighthearted escape rooms designed to encourage family bonding and teach values through play.

With more and more countries opening up to Singapore visitors, it’s tempting to start planning that highly anticipated holiday in a faraway land.
Families who cannot do so due to various reasons can rest assured that there are still plenty of excellent options to keep the kids occupied this June holiday.
It’ll also be a great way of proving to them that one need not spend a fortune to create memories that will undoubtedly last a lifetime.
