Ultimate stress-free guide for June school holidays

Ultimate stress-free guide for June school holidays

Worried the kids getting sick of Jenga and Monopoly or exhaust all the downloaded activity packs on the second day of the school break? Worry not Daddy and Mummy, we’ve got a four-week survival guide to guarantee 100% fun for the whole family.

“I’m bored!” is what most parents dread hearing, especially during school holidays. Add children chasing each other inside the home, eyes glued on gadgets, and incessant fighting amongst siblings, keeping the family entertained on school breaks can be challenging for the ever-busy parents.

That’s why we’ve created a survival guide for the next four weeks, so everyone can stress less and enjoy more. Head to Sentosa Island, which has declared a State of Fun! Here’s your plan:

Week 1: Sentosa FunFest
Have children step away from their gadgets and into a world of sun, sea, and sand! Sentosa FunFest is going to keep your family active with lots of adrenaline-fuelled and 100% screen-free activities.

For the older kids and sportive parents, slide down the Fun Water Slide, overcome the Sway & Swing rope swinging obstacle, or challenge each other with the Nerf Blasters! Attendees can also expect new activities such the Cliff Jump, Balance Beam, Traversing Wall, and 7.5m tall Slide & Bounce as the event returns for the second year.

For parents with younger kids, there are also toddler-friendly activities such as the Bubbly Foam Pool, Playful Sand Pit, and Kiddy Amazing Maze!
