Space Explorations

Pack along a fruit smoothie pouch and have a snack during your space expedition. After all, back in 1969, similar retort food pouches were used by the Apollo astronauts on their trip to the moon.

After you get back down to earth, you can have a picnic lunch at one of the pavilions near the rocket tower at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park.

Surface explorationsIf the little one gets bored of the rocket tower, there is a little side activity – a cool blue-floored fitness area. We suppose that’s where “astronauts” exercise to keep fit for their expeditions.

Well, we brought along a kick scooter, just for fun.
