So, how would you feel if we told you that there are some seriously super exciting things happening in Sentosa this March? No kidding, a visit there during these holidays will indeed be an “Eggs-perience” to remember for the whole family.
As you get ready to head out to the State of FUN, we share our picks of the not-to-be-missed events.
1. Sentosa KidZ Flea 2016
Suited for kids who are between 7-12 years old, the Sentosa KidzFlea programme promotes the development of children’s entrepreneurial skills by giving them hands-on experience in selling new or pre-loved items.
So, get your kids down to support the event and have fun together hunting for treasures amongst a host of stalls selling everything from toys, to books to clothes or even one-of-a-kind handicrafts. At the same time, you will also be encouraging young kids in their first steps towards entrepreneurship.
