March Holiday Events For Families
It’s the holiday season once again, which means kids might be at home all-day staring at their phones and iPads.
If you’re looking for fun activities that’ll get them out to play, look no further.
We’ve come up with a list of fun-to-dos and events so you can make the most out of their short break.
1. Tokidoki Bouncy Castle at Changi Airport
Have tons of inflatable fun and cartoon mayhem with your favourite Tokidoki characters at Changi Airport Terminal 3 Departure Hall.

We’re pretty excited to make our kids slide down dinosaurs and tire themselves out.
If you have a wishlist of Tokidoki characters you’d like to meet, immerse yourself in these criminally cute installations.
After a long flight abroad, you can even lounge in bean bags alongside kawaii characters.
